Surprise long weekend~!!

Up this morning a smidge earlier than I wanted, but my poor old bladder just could not take it any longer, so up I got…… bathroom stuff all done and out of the way and I settled in to catch up on the news……. jeez what a mess. I am worried what we as a civilization have in front of us. I am particularly worried about what my girls and my Grand kids are up against. Even if I manage to stick around another 20 years like Lil Sis told me I have to….. I’m not sure how much good I’m gonna be at being able to protect them or help them if they need it…….. old people problems……. dammit Emmit. I digress…….. My Bride rolled out about 30 minutes behind me and we settled in with coffee and computers. Today’s world I guess. I eventually got up, loaded all the batteries and got everything into my truck, then made breakfast for me and Angie. She has become quite smitten with the egg & cheese sammich I make for her (even making them for herself on non-work days sometimes). I don’t think she realizes how happy it makes me when she eats…… but again, I digress. Got her off to work and I was out the door right behind her. Another day on the boat….. thank goodness it wasn’t as ‘sporty‘ out there today. A very small group today (4 divers and 1 snorkeler) so lots of elbow room on the boat…. I like it~! Lots of photo Ops today including a big green Eel and an awesome video of it AND an even awesome-er video of a Sting Ray feeding. Not sure if I’ll be able to get it to load here, if not- I’ll put it up on FB. It is already up on Instagram if you have an IG account. A whole other blog about how and why I now have an IG account ((     Any~who….. two good dives today… everybody had a good time and no body got hurt…. always a good day when that happens~! On the ride back into the dock– Got the message that there is ‘NO Boat’ tomorrow. Not a lot of interest and they had some work to do on the boat anyways…. so– it looks like the ole fat boy has a 3 day week end~!!  Woot-Woot~!! Not sure what I’m gonna do with it…. I don’t think the grass will need cut this weekend because we have been oddly without rain this past week….. so 3 whole days~!!! I gave my gear a good rinsing and have it drying out for a change. It needs to do that once in a while anyways….. so look out island…… Here I come~!!  Ha Ha Ha Ha … I couldn’t even type that with a straight face…… if I make it past 9:00 I’ll be lucky~!!  😉

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~!!!! ;-)
