A better day

Howdy Y’all…. a much better day today, although I can’t promise this will be a full 500 words tonight either. After a mediocre nights sleep and waking up with a mostly stiff back….. I got up and moving…stretched enough to work most of the kinks out and got my day started. My Bride was up shortly behind me because she had her second day at Blues to go in for. She must have been extra hungry as she asked for 2 egg & cheese sammiches for her breakfast……. Made my day to make her a second one…..! I got her on her way and was out the door right behind her. EASY boat today. A couple of cancellations and we wound up with only 3 divers on the boat. The seas were a might bit ‘sporty‘ but outside of that — easy peezy day on the boat. No cooperative sharks today, or eels, but got several nice turtle shots and some new shots of Sea Biscuit…..  The Dive Master on board today shared some of the boat tips, so it made for an even better day~! Long complicated story about the tipping process, but as a rule I am not included in boat tips…. so- good day~!

Been looking into having some business cards printed up that should help get the tipping process leaning a bit more in my direction….. I have had multiple requests for them. Most of my customers are older and still feel comfortable with things written down  😉  Ordering cards on line (from this island) is turning out to be as confusing and maddening as trying to get Medi-gap policy….. but I digress. I reached out to Office Depot (we have one of them here on the island) and that whole conversation turned out to be a phenomenal waste of my time, so I’m just gonna go into the store and see what I can get done there….. Might have to have a drink or six before I do that though~~~ Speaking of which…… really, really, really cut way back on my alcohol intake (Maybe a 6 pack since I have been back) I think I may have actually lost a pound or so~!! Small steps I guess. It’s also been a year since I quit smoking and since I officially started taking pictures for Cane Bay. All kinds of fun stuff~! Diving again tomorrow….. a little fuller boat, but should still be an easy day compared to that last cruise ship day. Might also try and finish my Dive Master stuff this weekend…… busy, busy, busy!

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~!!!! ;-)
