February the Oneth

Second month of the year already….. wowser…. this year ain’t wasting any time getting a move on. I did not get notice of a ship in or needing to be on the boat this morning…… so I lounged a bit staying in bed until almost 07:00. That was nice…. I strolled out of the bathroom and opened up the shutters only to see a ship sitting at the pier. The ships are big enough we can see the tops of them from here. I checked my phone and there was no messages from the shop….. so I went about my morning business. I’m good with an extra day off – especially since it looks like I’ll be working Saturday for a special event. I sat and had my lemon water and caught up on the news. About the time I was finishing up the news, my Bride came stumbling out. I started coffee and we sat quietly enjoying the cool morning and the relatively quiet of our neighborhood this morning. Kinda ironic that as I typed that – the cruise ship just sounded it’s [very loud] horns signaling their departure. According to my calendar, there is another ship due in tomorrow, but I have already been informed the dive boat will be back at Salt River and is scheduled with a full roster….. including me.  😉

Angie made us a delightful breakfast and I started working on a new [photo] gallery while she did dishes. I spent the next several hours on photography ‘stuff’, including learning some pretty neat stuff about my new camera. I will get a chance to put some of the new found information to use come Thursday, as I mentioned the other day. We will be doing an all day photo shoot for the dive shop…. including new portrait shots for the dive shop web site. I guess I need to dig up a couple of tutorials on taking portraits….. ought to be interesting~ We did manage to get in a movie while I was uploading a bunch of pictures onto a flash drive for the boss. For some reason her laptop won’t let her down load pictures from my gallery so she occasionally has me do a mega dump onto a flash drive. Thankfully I keep my files in good enough shape- that it is not hard to do- just time consuming. The movie this afternoon was called The Fundamentals of Caring, with Paul Rudd. I strongly recommend that one…. well acted, just an all around good movie. We watched one last night I don’t think I talked about… called Home Team with Kevin James….. based on a true story and another one I would highly recommend….. especially of you’re a New Orleans Saints fan.

Looks like I’m ‘working’ the next 4 days…. but should be able to get on here and ramble a little bit. Amanda has been sending me updates on expected weather there for the next day or so……. you all have fun with that~~~  😉

Good Night Y’all * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Thankx for stopping in~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
