Making the best of it……

Up early this morning even though I wasn’t really feeling it. Got my camera all put together and out in the truck and came in to make breakfast. Fed my Bride and made me breakfast even though I was really up for that either, but I was expecting a couple of good dives would snap me back around. Pulled into the marina. The boat was there, but the truck that normally has all the tanks and gear wasn’t there yet, which is really odd because I wasn’t there much earlier than usual. I gave it a couple of minutes then started pinging people. Guess what… the people scheduled on the boat cancelled sometime during the night and I didn’t get that memo. Dammit Emmit~! Not only am I not gonna get to dive, but drove all that way for nothing….. plus dealing with some of the maniacs on our two-bit roads. DAMMIT Emmit~!! Whadda ya gonna do ?? I headed back to the house. Gave my gear a good rinsing as I’m probably not going to be using it for the next 5 days and got it hung up to dry. Dammit Emmit~! Tropical Depression # 7 is making it’s way straight at us and the next 2 or 3 days looks to have some pretty gnarly weather, especially since the Depression is supposed to be building in strength as it heads our way. Tis the season. (Hurricane season that is)

We were in need of some groceries and since my Queen was working – I figured I’d save her the hassle. Picked up the necessities and headed back to the house after swinging by the Post Office. (I kinda wish I would have known about Tropical Depression # 7 while I was at the store…. I would have probably stocked up a little better. What the heck….. I’m not diving tomorrow either – so I guess I can go again if I need to. After getting groceries put away, I figured it is probably gonna be another 4 -5 days before it is dry enough to mow and the yard was on the verge of shaggy – so I got into my comfies and headed out side. Dang it got hot quick……. but I mowed. I then loaded up the truck and ran into town and punched out the ATV yard……. got the mowing done and 99.75% of the weed eating done when I ran out of weed eater string. Due to the fact I forgot to bring extra line [rookie mistake] and the fact that it was raining like hell by then….. I opted to call it done. It had mostly quit raining by the time I got back to the house – so I knocked out the weed eating here… the light rain actually felt pretty good while I finished up. Everything cleaned up and put away – I came in and cleaned the kitchen floor then vacuumed the house. Not sure where the energy came from, but I feel much better knowing it’s done. Showered and waiting on my Queen, who brought Subway’s home. Pretty productive day for me……. I would have rather went diving.  😉  Will post older pictures until I get back to diving~~

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~!!!! ;-)
