Getting ready

Up fairly early again even though I stayed up later last night than usual. My  bride  crashed on me around 9:00. I wasn’t ready for bed and wanted to watch one more episode of a new show we started. We thought it was a movie with 2 parts…. turns out it does have two parts, but apparently each part has close to 20 episodes. It got intriguing enough, that we stayed with, although must confess there were several times we both mentioned it needed to ‘pick it up’ some. We just got into Part II this afternoon… tough to follow some times, but still interesting enough that now we need to see how it ends… Show is called The OA… not sure what that stands for yet…… I “think” it is Original Angel….. but not sure…. I’ll let you know as soon as I know for sure.

I got my new strobe in yesterday and spent the morning going through it, making sure it is ready to go tomorrow morning and getting it mounted on my camera. I also remounted my Go Pro bracket, as I picked up some small stainless steel washers I needed the other day when I picked up my Bondo. Oh yea— I finally got that done too. I didn’t get ‘Bondo’ [the brand name] – but this stuff is supposed to be the new equivalent of it. I’m usually skeptical of that kind of new stuff—- but at least I’ll know. Got my new bracket mounted, new strobe mounted and hooked up, back up batteries all charged and batteries ‘to be used‘ all loaded and ready for a bump charge in the morning before I leave. Can’t wait to get back in the water, seems like forever, even though I spent almost an hour in it yesterday, I’m ready to be diving again and having a full camera set up. I got my defective lights all packaged up safe and sound and run them up to the Post Office to get them on their way. I sure hope warranty covers what ever the issue turns out to be.

My Queen is in the process of making us some spaghetti and I’m trying to get this written in the process . The wind has laid down a little bit and it is getting down right toasty here on the island now (currently 87°). We still haven’t fired up the A/C in the bedroom yet, but I don’t think we’re to far from it. For now enjoying that nice low electric bill….. if you call $ 150 a month low (for a <600 sqft house).

Good night Y’all ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ Thankx for stopping in~!

((Happy Birthday to Grandson Kayden– big 12 years old~!!))

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~!!!! ;-)
