Oh boy my new Toy~!!

Another wonderful night’s slumber….. compliments mostly I suspect due to the fact that once again the bedroom was nicely chilled before we went to bed. We watched the re-make of Red Dawn…… it wasn’t bad….. it wasn’t good…. not quite as cheesy as the original (which I think is a good thing)…… they lost me right at the very beginning when all the parachutes were coming down and the airplanes were under the parachutes……. having made a jump “or two”….. I can say with all due expertise… that’s not how it works folks…… there were several “that’s not how it works” moments and too many of those ruin a movie for me……. but I’m just a grumpy old particular B*st*rd I guess……..but… back to the blog title….. after a glorious nights sleep….. I rolled out, bumped charged all my batteries…. got everything loaded and hauled out to the Suzuki. Against my better judgement, I opted out of making me breakfast. The appetite just wasn’t there and good common sense told me to skip it this morning…… so I did. Fairly full boat, but there were a couple of familiar faces on it and all the others seemed to be good fun folks…… I did my spiel on the way to the first dive site, which was Emerald Gardens……. which as you may recall is ‘home’ to Sea Biscuit…… the islands biggest ‘Sea Horse’.  Everybody did good diving and there was not much else for me to do but take pictures and experiment with my new GoPro. I wound up taking 11 video’s…… and oh good people….. let me tell you what~~~ After all the tutorials I watched yesterday, I set the camera for what I thought I was gonna want…… and oh… my… goodness…… the quality of these videos is nuts….. and I’m fairly sure they’re only get better as I continue to learn the camera….. so expect to see a lot more video’s. It also makes a ton of difference in light of the fact I can now see what I am videoing  😉     I hope to greatly enhance your understanding of what I see during a shark encounter as well….. and yes Vera— even of the big green eels….. but I’ll try and remember the heads up for you  when I put them up  😉   That’s about it for my day…. a little shy of my 500 words…. but I want to get a shower and snag a little couch time. If there is something ‘down there’ you’d like to see…… please let me know— I have a great way to show it to you now~!

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~!!!! ;-)
