A longer work week……

Good to be back on ‘my’ boat this morning….. and with only two guests today, it made for a pretty quick, relatively easy day.  They had booked a package and even though a couple of other people that were scheduled backed out – we still took them out. The sea was a smidge sportier than I would have liked for our guests and the visibility on the first dive was horrendous…… thankfully got a little better for the second dive. Lots of critters…. not big or exotic, but still made for a couple of fun dives. I got to practice my new knowledge of Macro [very close up] photography. For my first serious attempt at it — I’m not disappointed. Have been chatting with the Boss and just now found out I apparently will be working Sunday through Wednesday at a minimum. I was going to go ahead and ‘work’ tomorrow (Saturday) because this week was really light [only two days]….. now, apparently there is an entire family coming in that are good friends of the boss and they apparently are all going to get Open Water certified to SCUBA dive…… and the boss thinks it would be a really good opportunity to get pictures of them for advertising for “family togetherness doing SCUBA” type stuff. So my really short week just turned into a really long week. I’m good with that…. for now.

Just sitting here looking out the window and notice my fresh mowed grass….. needs mowed again. We have had some serious rain the past day or so and you can almost watch the grass growing now. Dammit Emmit. I really enjoyed not mowing….. now apparently right back into the the mowing every 3 or 4 days thing……. Dammit. Working Sunday will make that an even bigger challenge…. but I’ll figure something out. Calling it quits for the afternoon.

Good Night Y’all * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Thankx for stopping in~!

The bright yellow thing is an Arrow Crab, and would very easily fit into the palm of your hand……

These are all slightly smaller than thimbles

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~!!!! ;-)
