Up this morning, looking forward to a bit of a twist on the boat, by diving without my camera. The last time I did it, I didn’t know what to do with my hands. Well as it turns out….. I did not have to ‘Dive Master’. The Boss did a little improvising and got another Dive Master deciding it was more important [to her] to have me in the water with my camera. Not sure what I think about that, but it really doesn’t matter…… I’m pretty good about doing what I’m told when the boss is talking. As it turns out, it’s a pretty good thing I did. I got fantastic shark shots~! I watched this approximately 6′ long shark go after a Lion fish….. and missed~! He broke off a chunk of coral and it lodged in his throat~!! He went nuts trying to get it out. He was swimming frantically and whipping about and for a teeny tiny second there I thought I was in trouble because I was a whole lot closer to him than I needed to be. He finally got it out though and went right back after the Lion fish and I was in his way~! I bumped him with my camera a couple of times and rolled him off me once before he finally found and got the Lion fish. WOW~~! My pictures didn’t turn out as good as I would have liked because of the amount of the sand he was kicking up……. BUT…… I did have my video camera running the whole time~!! I haven’t uploaded the video yet, but I can’t wait to see it~!!! I just hope I don’t look or sound too uncool as he gets whizzing around me. I’m anxious to get to the video, so I’m gonna put up some shots from today and get started on the video. As it turns out, I’m diving tomorrow too, but looks like I’ll be off Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday because of lack of divers….. dammit Emmit.

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~!!!! ;-)
