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!
I realized today what a fast runner I am. i spilled coffee grounds this morning, and apparently, it takes me the same amount of time to clean up spilled coffee grounds as it takes me to run my 1.8 mile course, because by the time I got it cleaned up, It was the same time on the clock as when I get into the shower.
i didn’t run today, spilled coffee, didn’t have time.
If Ditto was still alive, it`d be his birthday. Also, on this day in 1979, I left Silver Spring, MD for boot camp.
Yesterday at work, I ha annual safety training, all day. Got it again this afternoon, and tomorrow morning.
