Catching up…….

Greetings family, friends and neighbors. Been a hot minute since I have been on here and figured I’d better get something up here. After tomorrow I am going to [supposed to be] slammed. Been a ‘different‘ past 4 days or so. As most of you know (I am presuming here) that my Queen is now back in the land of plenty. Everything kind of fell into place to send her back a couple of days ago and we moved forward with it. She got to spend Christmas with our babies and Grand babies and she is there now nice and close to decent medical care to address her health issues that we need to get resolved. I couldn’t see going back for that amount of time. While I love my family, spending that much time in that climate would have driven me over the edge. So I opted to stay here and hold the fort down and let Angie enjoy some family time without me upsetting her (grumpy old fart that I am)  😉   First time in 46 years I have spent Christmas by myself…. oddly, it wasn’t near as tough this time as the last. Last time I was 19 years old and stationed out in Nevada. Guess I’ve seasoned a little bit since then. LOL. I had my moments, especially Christmas morning, but face time helped a lot as I got to see [and hear] everybody via the good old mobile phone….. technology~~ Afterwards I did okay. The dives that were scheduled for Christmas day were cancelled, so I stayed busy making a run to the grocery store and then mowing the yard. Heckva a Christmas day activity. That’s the other thing…… that particular holiday just don’t ‘seem‘ like that holiday when it’s 86° and you’re sweating profusely. I also found other things to keep my mind occupied, so the rest of my day wasn’t bad.

Diving got cancelled for today as well [[Dammit Emmit]] and after I got house maintenance done, I committed to learning more about my new editing system. I made myself sit down and sat through about 5 hours of tutorials, with the occasional break to get up and walk around and get some blood back in my touchas. Not how I want to spend my time, but it was really worth it. I have such a much better understanding of it now and actually look forward to using it <tomorrow>. Speaking of which (if there are no more cancellations) I have a very busy week after tomorrow. I have one boat tomorrow (2 dives) and then Wednesday & Thursday I have two boats (2 dives each boat) each day. That won’t put me back here until probably 5:30ish….. so I’ll be editing pictures right up until bed time each night, so you probably won’t see or hear from me [here] those two nights….. even with my new found knowledge of Photo Shop. Never fear….. I’m doing great here all by my lonesome and I’ll get back on here ASAP. I hope each and everyone of you had a very Merry Christmas~!

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~!!!! ;-)
