It’s a weekend~!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here we go…….. up WAAAAAY to early this morning because I had to pee like a Russian Race horse– was never sure what that meant but my D.O.D. (Dear Old Dad) said it a lot. Amazing what the mind will conjure up when you hear stuff like that  😉  Probably one of a GO-ZILLION wonderful memories of my Dad….. he had a “saying” for dang near everything and most of them were comical as hell……… I use most of them now a days and people look at me like I have 3 eyeballs… don’t care….. I think it’s funny and it makes me think of my Dad. ♥  ANYhow……. up early enjoying a quiet morning and a HUGE breakfast [I was starving]……… before my Queen finally came stumbling out before I started my day. A pretty typical day (as those go in my daily routine)…. a couple of decent shark shots, a couple of decent turtle shots…. I kinda got to be ‘the hero’ on the second dive…… a pretty non-descript dive until I came upon a beautiful little hawksbill turtle. I came in tight enough for a shot, she felt the need to lift up and take off. I used that opportunity to gently ‘guide’ her toward the massive gang of divers laying there watching me. I do my level best not harass or ‘threaten’ the wildlife from where they hang out – but once they start moving….. I gently persuade them to move in certain directions…… which usually mean directly into the path of on coming divers. [GREAT photo ops] So everybody on the dive got a nice easy close up of the turtle~! The whole dive went like that and everybody was happy and content when it came time to surface and get on the boat. The days diving done…… we headed back and got everybody on their way. I was asked to transport one couple back to the West end of the island, which I happily did. A wonderful conversation (plus a cold beer or two) as we drove. They are from the great state of Texas…… I explained I once spent 6 weeks in Texas (in San Antonio)….. and was very under impressed. I don’t think they picked up on the fact, that is where I spent my Boot Camp with the U.S. Air Force. Doesn’t matter….. we had a great time “visiting” as I took them to their desired location. I dropped them off and headed home to my Queen. Because it is my ‘weekend’ – I decided to have a couple of drinks with my Queen while we sit here and discuss our day. We have had a tasty dinner and polished off the last of my birthday cake. I’m probably going to really regret having ‘drinks [vodka and water] with my Bride….. but right now it’s fun and we are both having a really nice evening. NO idea what I’m doing for the weekend…… so you’ll get what you get.

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~!!!! ;-)
