T-Boned, Dinner and BIG Waves~~~

Yesterday had the making of a truly wonderful day…… came >  < that close…… After an awesome nights sleep, a tasty breakfast I was out the door for some diving~! Had a fairly small boat and the folks on the boat were awesome~! A family and then two local friends of mine. The diving was good…… sharks— LOTS of them~!! Yay~!! BOTH dives~!! Got back to the dock…. shared a beer with the family that was on the boat. Mostly new divers, but they do a really good job for their experience level…. that’s rare. Headed back to the house, cause I needed to get my pictures up early, because we was meeting a friend for dinner ( one from the boat) She is heading back to the states the next day and I wanted her to meet Angie. She is a traveling nurse, working here on the island. Kinda pulled at my heart strings a little bit making me think of our damn neighbors. I’m cruising down the road, one of the very few occasions I had the radio on, the sun is shining, there is an awesome cool breeze (from a passing system way South of us), I’m sipping on my icy cold Budweiser thinking about how much fun dinner is going to be and {{{BAMMM }}}}. By the time I saw him, he had already hit me, dead center of my front door. I tried to swerve, but I had traffic coming at me and he was on me before I had a chance to do much of anything. I was only doing 30ish mph. He was trying to get out of a parking lot and said ” he just didn’t see me”  I pulled over to the side of the road.  The impact rolled him back into the parking area. I got out and headed toward him. An older gentlemen…. I’m guesstimating probably mid 70’s ?? Apologetic as could be. Kept repeating I’m sorry Mister, I just didn’t see you. I looked him over to make sure he didn’t get hurt. He said he was fine when I asked. I didn’t ask if he had insurance. He admitted he didn’t have any money and it certainly looked like he didn’t. He was on the verge of tears and kept apologizing. I looked at his car and his front end was decimated…. my truck, while obviously hit…. was in much better shape. I could open and close my door. I asked him if he wanted my information and he said no — I said “We’re good?” and held my fist up. He smiled, said yes, thank you, we’re good” and bumped my fist. I told him I hoped he had a better day. He smiled and turned back to go to his car. As of right now, I still have a light headache that won’t go away…. but it’s getting better by the hour. I should be good by morning. I’m pretty sure I did the right thing….. well dang…… I’m already at my 500 words, so you’ll have to wait to hear about the dinner and BIG waves.  😉  (Dinner was awesome!)

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~!!!! ;-)
