Best laid plans………

Up at the crack of dawn with a headache and had to whizz to boot – so I just went ahead and got up and stayed up, did my bathroom stuff and then went and took a handful aspirin and started my day. Due to the cruise ship due in late, I didn’t need to be at the dock until 11:30, so I had a nice relaxed morning to get started. My Bride slept in a little bit before finally joining me around 08:00.  She had an appointment to get her car worked on and needed to be out the door by 9:00 – so after a couple of cups of coffee, I made her an egg sammich and got her on her way.

FB started blowing up that the cruise ship was being cancelled because of rough water at the dock – so finally the dive boat was cancelled and taken back around to to the marina. Ironically, the cruise ship finally made it in, but the water was much to ugly to try and get ‘newbie‘ divers into the water. I just feel bad for the people that were scheduled because I know how excited I got every time I scheduled something new. On top of that- most of the street vendors heard the boat was cancelled, so they packed up their stuff and went back to their shops or houses, so I can’t imagine there was a lot of stuff for the passengers to look at or do once they did get off the ship. I am not surprised at that fiasco.

My Bride finally made it back and after catching up on everything, we settled in for a movie. It was a mushy romance movie that she likes and I tolerate, simply because we couldn’t find any of the type of movies I like (that we haven’t already seen) I don’t remember the name of it, but if you seen one of those type movies – you’ve pretty much seen them all.

I have taken all my batteries off charge and will only need a bump charge in the morning. Right now, scheduled for the morning AND afternoon boats – so four dives. One of the people on the afternoon dive just pinged me to ask if I will be on the afternoon boat. I dove with him Friday and I suspicion he wants some more pictures. I saw where he has downloaded some already. I like it when people request that I am on the boat. The morning boat is supposed to be another load of cruise shippers, but not near as many people this time, which makes it a lot easier on me, but severely cuts down on the possible tips. And— that’s if the ship can make it in…… local intel says it may still be to rough again. We’ll see. For now, a beautiful sunset and 80° with lots of big ole clouds everywhere……..

Happy Birthday to My Girl Stephanie — hit the big 40 this year~!

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~!!!! ;-)
