First Day, New Job

Although CayTronics has been paying the bills, I have still had too much time on my hands, and today am starting a new job in a dive shop called Divers World. I will be doing sales and repairing and servicing dive equipment. CayTronics will stay in full operation, same as before.
When I was very young, I wanted to be a scuba diver. I subscribed to Skin Diver Magazine for years and years in landlocked Missouri.
When I graduated High School, I joined the Navy but didn’t know what schools to try and get. I chose electronics because of a Heathkit Stereo my Dad and I built when I was a kid. I never had a craving to be an electronics technician or engineer. A lot of it had to do with doing something that my Dad would approve of. In the Navy, I got stationed in Pearl Harbor, and learned to scuba dive there at a Honolulu dive shop.
When got out of the Navy, and lived Virginia, I worked my electronics job from 7:30 till 3:30, then started at 4 PM at a dive shop, teaching scuba class and working in the shop.
I always considered making the switch from Electronics to Diving, but the scuba salary had been too low. Now, even though the salary is too low, the alternative is sitting at home, or go out beating the bushes to get more CayTronics business.
Maybe God is doing for me what I have not done for myself.
