Back at it……..

My morning was mostly uneventful, bump charging everything and getting it put in the truck. That proved to be a bit more of a challenge this morning as the truck was sitting in several inches of some very muddy water. Normally that wouldn’t bother me as I would wade through it and leave my flip flops on the stoop to dry, but first thing in the morning, trying to get the day started is not how that works out…. but I managed and was back in by the time my bride stumbled out. I had time to have a cup of coffee with her before I headed out. Turns out, she took off and got her some beach time while I was out diving and didn’t get back until I was back at the house and cleaned up. I like it~! Diving was wonderful although nothing really exciting (other than the usual) to talk about. I did get a couple of decent shark pictures, a couple of fairly decent turtle pictures, so it was a successful picture taking event. We had a really small boat today… 2 guests, so I had lots of time to experiment with my camera. Today was experimenting with my strobes. I tried several different positions, but I did not like any of the results as much as I do with the positions I am currently using. Next couple of days are much bigger boats (more guests), so busier days ahead.

Just finished up the planning of our next visit back to the states…..ugh…… but– we will land fairly late on the evening of Oct 8th (9:00pm~ish) and flying out early on the morning of the 18th. We will be staying Jeni & Mike in MTV while we are there. No plans made yet for while we are there other than a couple of medical appointments that we feel better getting done in the states than here. When we fly out, we are going to lay over in Florida for a couple of days and spend some time with Rachael and maybe dinner with my big Sister if they can break lose one night. Sorry Lil Sis….. but MI isn’t going to be an option for us this trip~~

Question for you all….. and this is a personal opinion kind of thing, so there is no wrong answer…… Let’s say you go on vacation to a tropical destination. You are wanting to bring back a memento of some sort or maybe a gift for a loved one or friends. 1) What are you gonna get ? 2) How much are you going to spend on it?  This is going to lead up to some similar questions…. but right now I am at my limit and this will get me started toward the intel I’m looking for. You can answer me here or on FB….. which ever is easiest for you. Thank you~~

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~!!!! ;-)
