That Five Minutes.

It was a windy wavy weekend with no diving and not many outdoor activities for me. I cleaned the house, namely the floor. There’s 5 minutes, after th floor is done and before I let the dogs out on it that are really nice.

Then here they come, drinking water and dribbling it all over from their jowls, tufts of fur rolling across like sagebrush in the wild wild west within minutes. Paw prints and furballs.

I wouldn’t change a thing!

Although I’m thinking about getting a vacuum cleaner. What do you know about vacuum cleaners?

Have a great week!

Bloody Ankle?

i was in bed last night and I moved my leg and it was stuck to the sheets. I felt down and there was sticky stuff below my knee. I had been bleeding from some cut or poke on my leg. I don’t know what happened. Maybe riding my bike or maybe I just bumped into something. But I had to change the sheets and do laundry at 10:30 last night. (I figured it would wash out better if washed immediately)

I slept good, I never heard the washing machine, woke up and it was done, put the stuff in the dryer, never hard a thing, woke up and it was done. Perfect!

And here’s a cat pic for you, Goldie, sleeping in the motorcycle.

Have a wonderful day!

Dogbark Night

Last night, around 3, there was a loud dogfight not too far from here. My two dogs, as well as the other million bajillion in the neighborhood, all went nuts. The dogfight lasted maybe 15 seconds max, but but the bajillion neighborhood dogs kept barking incessantly.

It seems like there is a lot more dogs in our neighborhood than I knew about or imagined. And who is just gonna let their dogs sit out in the yard and bark all night? Mine went in the kennel because they wouldn’t shut up, then they shut up.

It was a nice long weekend, I went out for Friday breakfast and beach, Saturday was an 800 m sea swim. I came in 4th out of 5 in my age category, I should have done a lot better. I was and still am extremely extremely disappointed. I need more training. I need to be able to double my breath rate.

Yesterday morning I went diving, and in the afternoon was the 1st night of Hanukkah.

When I write it here, it seems like a short weekend, but it was a good long weekend. I also mowed the yard and did a ton of laundry.

And now it’s back to work, have a good week!

Dragonfly Rescue

Yesterday, as I was closing the windows and doors, getting ready to depart for work, I noticed a huge tail on the window screen. My first thought was that it was a gecko, but it turned out to be a large and beautiful dragonfly. I couldn’t leave him between the screen and the glass all day so I tried to rescue him. Thankfully I was successful and I let him go on the back porch. I was afraid that he would be easily damaged in the wings but he made it OK. He hopped right into the cup.

Tonight is movie night at the Westin hotel. The movie is Mission Impossible. I’m going, but I’ll probably be late because I have an optometrist appointment at 5 PM. Who ever heard of an optometrist appointment at 5 PM? Ridiculous. Middle of the night. Then I have to come home and walk the dogs before I can go to the movie. But I plan on being there!

Have a good day!

Interesting weekend

I had an interesting weekend, I took the day off Friday and went snorkeling with some friends. Saturday a quarantiner dude came buy to pay for his quarantine after his return flight Nov 6th. He liked the place, paid, and left for the airport. 10 minutes later he calls and asks if he can leave his car at the house. I said OK and that I would even give him a ride to the airport. (I’m so nice!) I took him to the airport and dropped him off. 10 minutes later he calls and he left some travel documents in his car could I go get them. Perturbed now, I came back home, dug through his car to find his documents and took them to him at the airport. The guy seemed shady, nothing he said was specific, I had a weird feeling, but ignored it, maybe he was just a weird kid. After I dropped off his documents, I went scuba diving. As soon as I was done diving and got back in the car he called again. Customs found $24000 in cash in his luggage undeclared. They took the money and wouldn’t let him fly. I picked him up and took him back to his car, at my house. He told a story about being a real estate auction investor and they wouldn’t take credit cards or checks it was only cash. I gave him his money back told him I thought he was a crook and that’s the end of the story. It really killed my Saturday, I missed my 8 o’clock appointment because he was late coming to see the apartment and pay, I missed my 10:30 appointment because I went to go get his travel documents. I missed my planned grocery shopping excursion because I took him to his car and get rid of him.

Saturday and Sunday I went diving and took the dogs to the beach Sunday. Pictures below

I have a happy Monday, trust your instincts, and have a good week!

Dog Drone Rescue

The Spanish drone operator Aerocamaras received permission on Tuesday to rescue three emaciated dogs trapped by lava on the Spanish island of La Palma.

Read the article HERE. I think it’s great! I hope it is successful. At least they can feed the dogs.

Tomorrow I have the day off. Things are looking pretty good all around!

Enjoy your day!

Happy Monday!

Twas a good weekend, productive and fun. Friday I got off work early, went to the beach then went home and I mowed the yard, I only got the front done because the grass was so deep and wet. (When I say grass I really mean weeds!) Then our dinner club went out to dinner Friday night and it was quite nice. Saturday I went diving and then had coffee with friends at Waffle Monkey. Good coffee! Then I came home and mowed the backyard, it was much easier and drier. Saturday afternoon my quarantiner moved out, free of covid. I have somebody else possibly going into quarantine here on the 13th of this month, which will be nice.

Sunday was another diving day, followed by a washing two dogs who needed it bad and seem to feel much better

And now it’s a back to work Monday and I actually don’t feel so bad about it.

I have a great week!.

Music at the Library

Several weeks ago, I put an event on my calendar, “Music at the Library” part of the Cayman Arts Festival. I stopped by on my way to movie night last night. It was very nice I was quite surprised at the young man’s skill.

The Program below.

And below is a video I took last night. Quite nice. Under 3 minutes long.

I’m glad I went, I don’t know what made me put it on my calendar when I heard about it, but I’m glad I did, I would have forgotten about it if I didn’t.

After that I went to movie night at the Westin, had a chicken sandwich and left about a quarter way through the movie, “What Women Want

beautiful night

Then I went and saw some friends in Bodden Town and had overall a very nice evening..

Then I slept good, and feel good so far this Friday The 13th morning. And my class that I was so worried about yesterday wasn’t as bad as I thought. All’s well that ends well. Plus, yesterday at lunchtime I met a couple of really nice Rottweiler puppies.

Have a great weekend!

Trip To The Dog Doc

Daisy and Lenny went to the veterinarian yesterday for their annual checkup and shots.

They both behaved surprisingly well. I was very proud of them.

They had canned food for dinner last night because they were so good.

In other news, some camels were banned from Saudi beauty contest over Botox injections in their lips.

You can read that little gem of a story HERE.

Have a good day!

Busy & Not Too Fun

I spent most of Saturday and some of Sunday trimming trees in the backyard. See pic above. I wish I had taken a before shor, you could touch the tree branches from the porch. Ran into chainsaw trouble Sunday, I’m still not done. I rekkon I’m done enough.

I missed a big street parade Carnival Saturday too. I really wanted to go, but, you know, chainsawing.

Weather coming, looks like. We need some rain.

Today, both dogs are going to the vet to get shots and checkups.

Last week, I think it was Wednesday, someone creased my car in the parking lot of the grocery store. I think I noticed it immediately after it happened. It is upsetting, to say the least. I’m not going to do anything about it though. My first damage to my new baby van.

And that’s about it for today. Have a good week!
