I wasn’t going to write anything tonight, then remembered I didn’t write anything last night and got a small case of the guility’s….. so figured I better get a couple of words down here. We had a CRABBS meeting last night (local dive club) and as a departing member of the board, I was dropping off the rest of the equipment and ‘stuff’ I had and wanted to be present in case the new Board needed any help. I got there early enough to go over how to operate the speaker and went through the goodie bag I dropped off. I then got me a table off to the side and sat down and ordered myself a pizza and a beer. (which sadly, both turned out to be hugely disappointing) I was soon joined by 3 other former Board members and we all agreed it was ‘weird‘ to be sitting there and not up running the meeting. It was a good kind of weird though– I was ready to get out of it. Just to busy with all kind of other things. The new Board is off to a really good start and I’m happy to see it. I’ll probably make the next meeting or two before I start dropping out of them. I don’t want to drop out completely, because there are a bunch of good folks that belong…… but on those evenings when I’m a little more worn out than usual [like tonight] — I can sit out and not feel bad about it.

Today was a tough day…. our mostly full boat required a LOT of attention on both loads. I stayed plenty busy being a Dive Master versus a photographer. The second dive we had a pretty decent shark event….. to the point where I was putting myself between overly friendly sharks and a guest who was scared out of her wits. Then it happened again…. and I thought…. “hey— dipstick….. take pictures while you’re doing that”….. so I did….. and wound up with a couple of nice shots. That’s a good thing because I didn’t get to take hardly any non-people pictures….. dammit emmit.

Taking the day off from ‘work’ tomorrow to shoot some pictures for my island family. I will be underwater, but not with my shop. The decision has been made to split the day (was supposed to be a full day photo shoot) but now we’re gonna do the underwater pictures tomorrow and the land shots next week end. Should be a fun relaxed shoot tomorrow….. just hope nobody from my shop sees me on that other boat  đŸ˜‰

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~!!!! ;-)
