Blog Neglect

After reviewing my posts for the past week, I am amazed that I forgot to tell you that last weekend I went diving, and flooded my video camera. I apologize for this gross oversight.

On the bright side, I’m getting a new video camera, and I expect it to arrive today!

Drift Ghost-S Action Camera

The camera is waterproof to 3 meters, (10 feet) which isn’t good enough for my needs, so I also ordered:

So I should be good to go again for awhile. This is a far superior camera and I was pretty impressed with the old one, so we’ll see how it goes! I know I’m gonna like it!

AND TODAY IS FRIDAY!

 

Rainy Friday

It’s a cold rainy Friday. It’s been raining for days. I’ve been driving the car not the motorcycle all week.
I haven’t been to the beach since Monday at lunch time.

I’ve discovered I don’t care about the weekends if it’s going to be raining,

I just deleted a long rant about work because it was not appropriate for this blog. I try to remain politically neutral here.

I’m going to get going now, and wish you a happy weekend.

I think foul weather makes me insane.

Finally Friday!

After what seemed like a long, slow week, it’s Finally Friday. Unfortunately, I have the feeling that this will be a fast, short weekend. The Wife has mentioned several “Little” things throughout the week that she wants to do this weekend. And I have the vague notion that she’s got us booked pretty solid. She’s working Saturday and I’m bringing the boat home.

I’m not going to post much today, Have a good weekend!

Five Days and a Wake Up

image

Monday morning again, it’s hazy and gray. The sun coming up this morning looks just like the sun did setting last night. I don’t ever recall any weather quite like this in Cayman. Breezy yet hot.

Five days and a wake up till vacation. Very eager to go.

It was forecast to be windy this weekend, so I didn’t take the boat out. It didn’t turn out to be so bad. I need a trailer hitch, so I have some independence.

I mowed the yard yesterday, and The Wife did some landscaping. Looks goooooooood!

Have a good week.

Oh One August One Three!

Can you believe it? August already.

I don’t have much to say today. Fed the chickens and cats, walked the dogs and fed them. We got a new coffee pot and today’s the second day it’s been used. Still tastes like crap.

Glad tomorrow’s Friday. I was asking my New Zealand friend yesterday if it was Friday yet. Wasn’t then but I’m sure it is now!

I’m having black beans for breakfast. And cheese.

My wife is working Saturday,  Coming up is our last Saturday before Vacation!

Have a good day.

Good Monday Morning To You!

Back to work today. What a weekend. Saturday flew by. Saturday I looked at my watch and it was 11:30, five minutes later, it was 2:30, and five minutes after that it was 5:15! Today they should be delivering the boat we won, Holy  Cow, it’ll be real then!

Sunday we went snorkeling, and The Wife tested out her new Underwater Camera, a Nikon  AW 100. Blue.

She got some good shots even though visibility was crappy.

Yesterday I let the chickens out around noon, and when we got home from the beach they were nowhere to be found. We were afraid we lost them but at sunset, all four came home and didn’t even try to get away when I picked them up and put them in their cage. It was very  pleasing.

There has been another lost chick around all weekend, this morning I put her in the cage with ours, She is barely bigger than an egg. The Wife won’t be pleased.

It rained hard this morning but  now it’s all clear… Scooter or car? Scooter or car?

HAVE A GOOD WEEK!

Back From The Brac

Got back from Cayman Brac yesterday evening. Had a really good time. Went to a Star Trek party in the Bat Cave, saw lots of friends, ate a lot, rested a lot and the time there was way too short. Below are pictures.

Spotted Eagle Ray

Below is a video of the same Spotted Eagle Ray, 47 seconds long.

Here it started raining a cold cold rain, I put the house plants outside, so it’ll probably stop. I hope you have a great weekend!

Fridaaaay!!

Glad it’s Friday. Really glad!

Bad news this morning, my friend, Percy, died yesterday. He was 97 years old. He used to walk around our cul-de-sac for exercise and I used to talk to him. He was from Cuba and referred to Fidel Castro’s government as “this new government” Every time he saw me  he’d say “Hi Mark! How are you?!?” He is being buried in Cuba this weekend. I was hoping he’d make it to 100 years old, at least.
When I woke up this morning, the dawgs were desperate to go outside. So I took them before my shower instead of after. I saw Perceys grandson and he told me. Everything happens for a reason…

No plans this weekend, wife’s working Saturday…

Thursday Thoughts

Yesterday I got my Nexus 7. I’m typing this on that.So far, I like it, but I’ve barely started using it after charging the battery.
Yesterday I also got an email from Trip Advisor, asking me to remove my link to their site from my November 10th, 2010 post. First I said no, but The Wife said “why not?” so I said “why not?” too and took it off. The post was a good review of Tim Buk Tuu restaurant here in West Bay, Grand Cayman. The email said that my link was reducing traffic to their link. I doubt it.
I’m glad the weekend is almost here, and glad today is payday.
