Welllllll doogggggyy……………

Wow, it’s really hard to spell like what Jed Clampett sounds like when he talks……. My day started out like most of the rest. Woke up of my own accord, even though I went to bed almost a full hour later than I normally do. We stayed up later than usual watching the shows I mentioned yesterday….. we watched another movie after I got done chatting with you all last night….. but you know what I didn’t do….. ? Ding, ding, ding……. not write it down~!!! We have a winner~!! So- I have no friggin’ clue what the movie was…… dammit Emmit~! It wasn’t that good or I would have remembered something about it……. right now, I can’t even think of what it was about, but I do remember we didn’t care for it. Dammit Emmit~!!! I digress…….. dang it……. Up way before my Bride finally rolled out, so I had just over 2 hours of extra quiet before she came stumbling out. I opted out of breakfast because my stomach was ‘in a mood’ and instead took off for all points mid island, leaving my Queen making herself her Egg and cheese sammich. I should have made it for her, but it was just not in the cards this morning. Again, I journeyed to mid island, only this time to find the business of my target open for business. I went in, found some uber small stainless steel washers that I needed, met the guy I went to meet, unloaded the stuff out of my truck for him that I meant to get rid of…… so even though he didn’t have Bondo….. everything else was a plus and I made a new aquaintence on the island. In this environment, it’s not what you know…. it’s WHO you know~~  😉 He did give me what turned out to be sound advice on what I was hunting. It wasn’t Bondo– but supposedly the new 2022 version of it. I made the plunge and got it. Hopefully that doesn’t come back to bite me in the touchas. Got everything [I think] I’m gonna need to get get my truck fixed up and headed back. Stopped by the dive shop and secured an available Instructor and told her I would be back shortly, and that I needed her to watch me swim. Long story shortened…… I showed up, I swam…… and swam… oh people…. it wasn’t pretty….. I made it out to my turn around point (400 meters)… that wasn’t bad…. I had the wind at my back and it kinda help blow me out there…. U-Turn and head back into shore…. UUGGHHHhhh…. into the wind…. ran into another #$%^&^%$#$%^& current….. DAMMIT~!!!! I however, managed to power through this one….. once on the other side of the current…. stopped often enough to get my breath back before dog paddling my fat, tired, worn out, old butt back to where the Instructor was waiting. NOW…. I had to go put on ALL my gear [have the Instructor put on ALL her gear [[including weights]] and I had to tow her 100 meters in less than [I think] two minutes……. I wasn’t worried about this one….. I had my fins on and all my strength is in my legs now……. 58 seconds~! I towed that cute little sh*t 100+ meters and didn’t hardly blink~!

Wow– way over, so ….in conclusion…. I should have everything I need now to get my Dive Master Cert…… took my bride out to dinner for some of her taco’s…… Good day~!

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~!!!! ;-)
