Woke up this morning to two sick dogs. I thought there were two, now I’m thinking only one. Ditto has this medicine that the doctor said if he gets sick, stop giving it to him. Well, I’m stopping. This morning after our walk, bloody diarrhea all over the living room. And Ditto was so humiliated I couldn’t even be mad at him. One of my New Years Eve wishes was that Ditto would be healthy and happy for 2014, but I don’t know if he’s going to make it. I can tell he’s in pain.
It was a good weekend, went to the beach Saturday, and Sunday, went to a Guy Harvey Earth Day Mangrove cleanup. After the cleanup we had lunch at Morgans Harbor. Below are some videos and photos from both.
Here we are, at hump day. When this week started, I thought it’d never end, but it’s not going too badly.
At work it is the annual flight check. An aircraft comes in with equipment to check all our equipment. It’s my first one and so far, very interesting. Except for minor adjustments, I don’t think they have found anything wrong.
Yesterday I had my scooters 3000K maintenance done. They didn’t find anything wrong there either, but I think they turned the idle down a little, and it doesn’t seem to coast as well. I have to check it more though, I haven’t ridden it much since I got it back.
I want to start swimming after work again. I used to swim every day, and kind of quit when I got the first scooter, because I didn’t have anyplace to put my laptop when I swam, now I don’t carry a laptop so it seems I can start swimming again. It would be better if I got off at 4 instead of 4:30. However, getting off at 4:30 is better than getting off at 5..
I guess I’m just rambling so that’s all for today.
It’s Tuesday, and I gotta say I feel at least a thousand times better than I did yesterday. Your comments made me laugh.
Tomorrow is payday! WHo-Ray! No, wait, might be day after tomorrow.. It doesn’t matter, I only get paid once a month.
Below is a picture I took yesterday. You have to click it to see it full size. It’s a repetitive photo of that same old school of fish that has been around more than a week, with a barracuda in the middle. It seems like the school of fish is getting bigger BTW.
But you can’t really see it well unless you click it and look full size. You think you can to these things but you can’t, Nemo!
It’s Monday, but really it’s Tuesday.
Yesterday was the best day of the weekend. We went to the beach and snorkeling.
Above is a photo and a super short (3 seconds) video of a triggerfish that hid as soon as I saw him.
And that’s about it. Also, last month, when The Wife went to Costa Rica, she brought me back a coffee cup gift from our cousins. It’s pretty fancy, with the saucer and the spoon and everything…
Yodito means super strong coffee, and has something to do with iodine.
I have been working at the Airport for 6 months now. That means my probation is over. I have to get an evaluation to make it official. Today..
Lately people have been doing this “stand up paddleboarding”. I don’t see the appeal. To me, it doesn’t look like much fun. First time I saw anyone on a kayak, windsurfing or hang gliding or sailing in a sailboat, I thought “Dang, now that looks cool!” But paddleboarding looks slow and boring. You have to have flat calm water and it looks terribly inefficient. On a kayak you can put your back into it and get going as fast as you can. Paddleboarding looks like the challenge is to stand up and paddle at all. Apparently it’s all the new rage, but I don’t see the thrill.
DO you see the thrill?
This makes me sad. I wish I could un-do it.
Years ago, I was walking on the beach and I found a brand new looking, plastic mouse cage. It was about twice as big as your grade school milk carton, Clear plastic with a fluorescent pink lid with bars. I thought WTF? and picked up and took it home.
Later that day, I was getting some dirt for a plant from a pile of dirt at the apartment and found a baby black snake. He was the size of a worm. The cage was perfect for him.
I had him in the cage for an hour or so, and decided he deserved to be free, so I let him go back where I found him. The cage rotted in the sun and I ended up throwing it away.
Two or three or four years later, I found a big blacksnake under my welcome mat. I killed it.
After I killed it, it occurred to me, “Maybe that was the same baby snake I found years ago” And as soon as I thought it, I knew it was true.
And I immediately regretted killing that snake and I still wish I hadn’t killed that snake. Why did I find that snake and that cage on the same day? I feel I definitely strayed from my path either the day I found the snake, or the day I killed the snake. Or both.
It’s a Holiday here. I have the day off but the wife is working, unfortunately. Below are some random pictures from the past week or so.
Cruise ship from the air, taken when I was on my way to Cayman Brac for work last week.
Last months full moon, coming up over the neighbors house.Heron and snorkelers.
Today is the first day of winter, sounds ominous, but really it’s the day the days start getting longer again. I’m glad for this. It’s hard to wake up when it’s still dark..
What do you think of all the doomsday people, saying the Mayan Calendar predicts the end of the world today? I think it’s the same as going up into an abandoned house, seeing an old calendar on the wall, and saying “The people who lived here thought the world was going to end on Dec 31, 1998!:
Below are some underwater pictures from my lunchtime snorkeling this week.
Hope your world doesn’t end this weekend and that you have a good one!
Yesterday I went back to the same beach as yesterday, I went snorkeling near Spanish Bay and walked around a bit, taking pictures. While snorkeling, a frikkin remora tried to attach itself to me. Bastad. Normally they just keep hassling you but I kept chasing it until it went away.
Today I don’t know what is planned. Maybe go pick up a check. Renew the PO Box. Smoke a cigar….
