Divin’ Again~!

Up earlier than I’m used to this morning after over a week of ‘sleeping in’. A mostly fitful night’s sleep, wasn’t really ready to get up, but glad to do it just so I wouldn’t disturb my bride wallering around. Didn’t sleep worth a crap….. back was killin’ me…. damn I hate this getting older stuff~! First 60+ years of my life, I didn’t hardly know what back pain was…… now I can’t get away from it. Dammit Emmit~! Got my camera all put together and moved out to the truck along with my gear that’s been sitting in the spare room for the last week or so. Belly was FUBAR’d as well and I opted out of my breakfast. Angie eventually came out to join me and I had a cup of coffee with her before I headed out to the marina. Island traffic was in rare form this morning, which was only fitting to go along with the rest of my morning, but I got there, got my rig all put together and ready for the rest of the day. A decently full boat and all were mostly solid divers. I was advised that there was some training going on for a new Dive Master/Instructor and I needed to get some pictures of that. It was deep water training, which significantly cuts into dive time – but I always enjoy that particular training and it was fun to shoot. Second dive was dedicated to getting pictures of the other divers and most of that dive, I did just that. I did manage to score enough extra time for some ‘pretty’ shots that I could put my name on. I was ‘spot on’ with my strobes and backscatter was almost non-existent. I love it when that happens and I’m getting really close to be able to do that consistently. Cuts my editing time almost in half~! No exciting shots like sharks bouncing off of me, but some nice shots none the less.

Once again, no boats scheduled for the near future – but that can change pretty quick. Crossing my fingers it does. Until then– the #$%^& grass needs mowed again and I still need to get some more body work done on the truck….. so lots to do if I can get myself in that mood……. for now — looking forward to hitting the couch and letting my back rest…… at least I have fun new pictures for 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~!!!! ;-)
