A couple of days off………

Really good day of diving today. Two really good dive sites. First one was Armageddon, which is my best most favorite dive site…. love it, love it, love it. Shooting pictures was a challenge because I am down to the one strobe and for whatever reason I could just not get it dialed in to eliminate backscatter. Dammit Emmit~ Second dive was another favorite and again, for whatever reason, this time… I dialed the strobe in perfectly and had almost zero backscatter. Go figure. My new/replacement strobe should be here tomorrow, so that issue should go away once I’m back to using two strobes. Then to try and figure out why the old strobe failed… as well as my video light. I am using an old video light as a back up, so I am good to go for a while….. I hope. Those lights are actually more expensive than the camera~! Ain’t none of it cheap………

I brought my good land camera with me today and did some experimental shooting on the boat. The pictures I took came out almost as good as I was hoping. The quality is there, but my subjects weren’t smiling where I hoped they’d be smiling…. but still got some awesome shots. I’ll put a couple on here tonight so you can see what I’m talking about. I’m off for the weekend and as of right now, there is no boat scheduled for Monday or Tuesday (we are going into our slow period) so it looks like I have a 4 day week end coming up…. woot-woot~!! I have decided I’m going to go to the auto parts store and see if I can find a can of Bondo and see how much of my body work skills I remember to work on my truck. At one point, many, many moons ago, I was actually pretty good with it. Pretty sure I can’t make it any worse…… course, I may have those words come back to haunt me, but I have to do something or the entire roof of my truck is going to collapse in on me here soon. So- a project of sorts for my days off. It’s a shame Home Depot is out of floor tile…… I could have finished the floor in the house~!

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~!!!! ;-)
