Another presentable nights sleep….. well, for most of it. I think I need a new pillow. Mine craps out about an hour before I am ready to get up. I beat it up, fold it, tuck it and here lately just cannot get it to feel the way I need it to. That is one of the reasons I get up long before I need to. If I stay there, I wind up with a sore neck and usually a headache— which is a sucky way to start your day, so I just get on up. Now I just have to get my touchas to the store and look for a new one. About 2 years ago, I ordered a “My Pillow”….. jeez what a freakin’ joke that thing was….. and a phenomenal waste of money. I especially like the way they conveniently don’t tell you that you will need to tumble your pillow in a dryer for 45 minutes before using it….. like all the other crap on the idiot box…. you can’t believe a word you hear. I rubbed some Biofreeze on my neck and got started on my day. I made me and my bride a bite to eat and got us both out the door. I had to leave my little GoPro here. It sat in rice over night, and this morning I did get a light to come on (which is a really good sign) but not usable, so I repacked it in rice and let it sit. I’m gonna try to resuscitate it when I’m done writing this. If I can’t get it to work, guess I’ll go shopping Saturday……

Dives today weren’t bad. Had a few extra people that required some attention, but not real bad. Nothing spectacular on the dives, a couple of lobsters, some lionfish, a couple of sharks, but I couldn’t get them anywhere near me. We had a couple of zoomies on the dives. If you don’t know what a zoomie is, anytime there is a fascinating creature…. a zoomie will kick as hard and as fast as they can toward that particular creature, which in turns terrifies the creature and they do their level best to avoid you….. and they can always out swim you~! If by chance the poor creature is trapped in a tight spot and can’t get immediately away, the zoomies will flail and kick enough to stir up enough sand and crap in the water it will take hours for the waters to clear up, so it’s best to just swim on by. It’s aggravating in that you miss some really nice shots some times and the flailers often collide with the local plant and coral life and tear the hell out of them as well. They don’t mean to, but the results are the same. If they get to stupid with it… I will stop them. I don’t care if they get pi$$ed or not…….  Wow….. I just spit out an entire blog on that…….HMmmmm…. I was going to talk about how good the water felt today (hence the title)…. I always put the title and then [try] to write something that correlates to it……. try~~  😉

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~!!!! ;-)
