Been a day or two since I have been on here…… Lots going on in our quiet little retired life here on the island. Saturday I was up way later than I cared for editing and uploading pictures from a busy day of diving. The last dive was the “JR” dive. Fairly decent turn out. Kinda sad that we didn’t have very many parents attend this time. I always enjoy watching the parents and their kids in the water…..also makes for some great pictures. We made the best out of it and everybody had a great time. The morning boat had several ‘new to me’ people on board and all seemed interested in photo’s. Those dives are fun as well. I don’t enjoy [as much] the occasions where divers are ‘too cool‘ to have their pictures taken or they’re PO’ed/Upset/jealous/whatever that you want to call it that you want to take their pictures even though they have their camera with them….. it happens. I want to grab them by the ears and shake them and tell them I am doing a job….. I honestly don’t care if your camera is bigger/nicer/smaller/cheaper/has more lights/filters or other stuff than mine does…. I really don’t. I know there will always be someone, who will have a much nicer camera than mine (and probably better at using it) than I am and have zero issues with that as well. I tell them early in my ‘spiel’ that there is no added charge or fee for the pictures I take. I think there is a small percentage that still don’t believe me, until they actually download their pictures……. I also get to see and read and hear about people who are thrilled with their pictures and that always makes up for any of the spoil sports I have to deal with. Plus I take immense pride when my other pictures (sharks, turtles, corals, etc. ) come out looking real good. It’s a great retirement gig~!
Of course, last night was the Super Bowl and while I did not watch a lot of the noise leading up to it, I stayed sufficiently distracted enough that by the time the game came on – I didn’t get any writing done…… I think I did do a FB thing right before the game started, but that was about it. Game was (in my opinion) very unremarkable…… I think the Bengals gave it away there in the last 5 minutes….. I guess you probably have also heard all the ‘fuss’ about the half time show. You probably have your opinion on it as well. I thought it was stupid, which falls nicely in line with the way the rest of the states is acting right now….. so I guess it was appropriate. All I know, is if I paid anywhere near the outrageous prices I heard about for tickets to that game and then had to sit through that mess….. I would not have been happy…… but that’s just me. Diving tomorrow… I think…. 2 dives minimum…. maybe 4. Yay~!
Good Night Y’all @ @ @ @ @ @ @ @ Thankx for stopping in~!
