Week wrap up~~

Up bright and early this morning to get ready to go diving after our wicked little storm last night. Gear all put together and loaded in the truck. I made me a delicious breakfast (and later regretted it) and headed out the door. Roads were a disaster…. gravel drive ways all washed out onto them, trees down…. tons of palm fronds everywhere… amazingly….we never lost power [[knocking on wood]]…. it blinked once and stuttered coming back on, which seems to have fried our little electronic picture frame. Dammit Emmit~! It is on my to-do list tomorrow to see if I can get it going again. Everything else fared fairly well [[again, knocking on wood]]. Rain….OMG…. most reliable intel that I could get said we got a little over 4″ in just a couple of hours. It looks it…. As I closed up the place last night we had a small river running down the side of the house and all the leaves and sticks are now stretched out in a nice line showing the path of the water. From what I can tell, we have another couple days of sketchy weather….. the skies certainly look it.

Did manage a couple of dives today, but visibility left a lot to be desired. I did manage a couple of decent shots even with that viz. Not very many though. Not many critters out and about either. I think the storm may have had them a little bit spooked. Even though there is another boat tomorrow – I am sitting it out. Had about all I care for this week (without going into a lot of detail) Did something on the boat or close proximity, that put my back in spasms and a headache that almost made me sick to my stomach. Honestly have no idea what. Got the boat docked up, unloaded and back here – I immediately popped 3 extra strength Excedrin….. sadly it didn’t do much good. I have now popped a handful of muscle relaxers and they seem to be kicking in. Whatever I did– I did it up good….. wow.

Rain has just started again…… like we need more. Radar shows quite a bit out there….. lovely. Looks like I may have to mow the yard in the rain…. That’s always fun~~ Neighbor stopped by. We fed him and chatted a bit. My stomach issues came up and he proceeded to tell me that my issues sound just like what his Mother recently passed away from. His Dad is a Doctor and he is fairly well versed on such things [according to him]. He said at my next appointment, I need to ask them about Peritoneal cancer…… Angie did a quick Google on it – and the symptoms sound a lot like mine — but also a lot like a dozen other things…. so I’m not gonna panic [yet]…….great, something else to think about. Tomorrows a new day…… if we don’t get washed away  😉  We’ll see what it brings~~

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~!!!! ;-)
