Fed me and my Queen and out the door to start our respective days off this morning….. her off to Blues for a day of making consumables and me another morning under the water trying to convince sharks to come hang out with me. A tiny boat this morning…..a woman and her Daughter diving and a son snorkeling. Neither of the divers apparently very experienced, but they made a good effort and required only minimal assistance. They were friendly on the boat and just nice friendly people in general. They also tipped…….. It’s been almost 2 weeks since I got a tip from anybody. As a rule I try and not think about tips, but these past 2 weeks, I have been busting my hump [more so than usual] to make sure I’m getting shots our guests were asking for. They heap piles of praises on me (and I most certainly appreciate that – but praise don’t buy a lot of gasoline or groceries) and tell me how they’re gonna ‘take care of me on Venmo’. ” Oh wow – ok – great….. Thank you very much…I would certainly appreciate that” I say with my best smile, knowing that they are probably lying to me. I am exercising my patience though….. maybe they just haven’t got around to it yet, but that’s why the young lady today was a little bit of a morale booster, she not only said how much she appreciated all I did…. she showed it…. and very nicely at that.

Now – I am off for the next 4 days (as of right now) and I’m good with that….. even though my Queen has to work tomorrow, I have enough odds & ends I need to get done, tomorrow should be a good day for it. I also want to get out and get some shots of our local Flamboyant trees, they are in full bloom right now and would make some great [hopefully sellable] pictures, so I’m gonna grab my land camera and see if I can get a couple of good shots and maybe add them to my gallery of shots that will soon be for sale in a couple of local shops. If I do manage to get out for those shots…. maybe I’ll get a couple I can share with you for a change of pace………annnnnnnd the grass needs mowed again  😉

Vera – a couple eel pictures, but it’s a small one…. not the big green one.

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~!!!! ;-)
