I had a good weekend! Saturday I went out for breakfast and lunch. Did some yard work and gardening.The internet cable job is done. Finally.
Sunday I went diving and a remora tried to attach itself to me. Quite, no, extremely annoying. He finally attached to my fin and I left him there. Better my fin than my leg.
Here is a link to a short video of the remora on my fin. And below are some pictures.
Above is a picture of the beach in downtown George Town. I stopped by to look for some sea glass.
Last night I went to a presentation on Blackwater Diving. That’s diving in the open ocean at night. By open ocean, it was presented by Don Fosters I mean not on a reef, off a boat in a bottomless sea. I didn’t take pictures of their pictures, but I did see Jessika’s scuba instructor and took a selfie to send her.
And, if I was still married, today would be my 13th wedding anniversary. She’s been gone almost a year.
And now itsa backa to-a work-a. That’s supposed to sound Italian.
I got my new glasses yesterday and they are instantly so much better, that I can’t believe that I put up with that crap of the old glasses. I remember when I got the old ones new I thought they would take getting used to but I never got used to them. I believe they may have even hurt my eyes.
On this day in 2005 I met my wife. It’s surreal to go back to the 14th thru the 17th of September 2005 and read those posts on this blog. It will slay me if I can look back on these present days with 20/20 hindsight and see a way I could have saved my marriage., but I sure can’t see it now.
Notice I said 20/20 in a post about my glasses. Very clever!
Have a great day!
UPDATE! FOR SOME REASON, I THOUGHT TODAY WAS THE 16TH. I met my wife on the 16th of September 2005.
I thought the 26th of May was the anniversary of Hands Across America. I was in it, at College Park Maryland, USA. But, this morning I realized it was the 25th.
Getting the date wrong kinda pulled the rug out from under this post, which I’ve had planned for a week or so. The BBC has been advertising a special podcast and I’m sure they were saying the 26th the whole time.
Anyway, I participated in Hands Across America, and it was pretty cool.
In other news, there was an eclipse of the moon this morning. Who knew? I didn’t. I generally keep track of these things, and was quite surprised. I did my morning exercises, I saw the full moon. I took the dogs for their walk, and watched it become a half moon. Quite impressive. I have witnesses in case you don’t believe there was an eclipse. It’s probably just ending as I type this.
Anyway, I seem to be way off the mark for everything today. On a break from reality. So wish me luck getting through the day unscathed!
