Dinner with Friends

Probably gonna be short tonight. I just finished up my editing and getting today’s [[sharky]] pictures put up and have [hopefully] enough time to get a short blog up here before we take off. We are having dinner out tonight with some friends and I am really looking forward to it. We have been trying for the last 3 months to get our schedules lined up to go out and tonight is the night~!! It is also at a restaurant that I have been wanting to check out for a while now….. that coupled with going there with these two people, have got me amped~!!  I had a tiny, tiny little breakfast this morning (still fighting that bloating thing) and nothing else today other than 3 or 4 bottles of water (and yes, a Budweiser) but that’s been it and the old fat boy is a starvin’ Marvin~!!

My bride picked up my MRI results while she was out and about and I am ecstatic to say that everything appears normal and good. Only thing is now– that begs the question….. what the hell is going on inside me ? EVERY test I have had done so far says that I am in pretty decent shape for an old fat guy……. that’s something else…… I’m gonna start dropping weight, regardless of who I have to pi$$ off or what I have to do……… but I digress. I have an appointment with Doc mid next month —- and I aim to tell her that unless she comes up with something else (that makes sense to me) I’m gonna have to look at a different Doctor. I really like her and I think she is doing what she can – but I think I need to take it up a notch…… Something has to change…… soon. The weight thing…… I get, I quit smoking and eating more crap than normal…. but the last couple of months I have taken some pretty drastic steps to try and stop the onslaught of pounds accumulating on me and I just keep gaining weight…… WHAT the HELL ??? I’ve never done ‘speed’ before, but am starting to think about it….. I absolutely hate the way I look right now. I don’t want to do any of those ‘miracle’ pills — they just make you $hit your brains out….. that’s the last thing I need……. Gonna wrap it up here— anxious to get our evening with friends started….. some pix from today….. more diving rest of the week~~~~~~

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~!!!! ;-)
