My first plaster, or: debilitated

Yesterday, at work, I stepped down off a fairly high curb, landed on some scrap concrete, and twisted my ankle to the outside. It swelled up like two hard boiled eggs taped to my foot. one on the top of my foot and one on my ankle. I went to the hospital emergency room and had X-Rays taken. Then I found myself sitting in a room with drawers marked “plaster” and also there were crutches hanging every where. I have a half of a cast on my foot. And crutches. My first cast, not my first crutches. I’m missing the dive as I type this. The weather has been perfect, and the diving spectacular. I haven’t been diving in a looooong time.
I have to figure out how to take a shower.

Another day, Without pay!

I’m getting ready to go to work again. I worked 12 hours yesterday. I’m overloaded with jobs I need to do but can’t get to them because of all these outside broadcasts, which I feel aren’t in my job description. They are, according to my “superiors” but I got lots more important things to do than sit there while announcers and salespeople talk. I just need to adjust my attitude, which is easier said than done.

Friday Butt

It’s Friday BUTT it doesn’t seem like it. I have an outside broadcast this morning, probably all day, then another tonight and another tomorrow. I got a couple days off coming next week though. First thing this morning I have to singlehandedly try to get a satellite dish I put together yesterday on the pole. I’ll probably use both hands.

And I already called my #1 dive buddy about diving Sunday.

Here’s an abstract photo for you. Can you guess what it is? I think it’s tooooo easy!

Enhanced wreck pic

Blogger shrunk the pic this morning so you couldn’t really see the snorkelers. I think there’s 4. Two swimming out, one underwater, and one with blue fins. But maybe only two. or three. I didn’t see them from the air, I just saw them on the picture.

Back in the swing

I’m back home, Yesterday I went to work from the airport, came home during the split shift and unpacked. Ths morning I felt disorientated. I had a hard time waking up. I wanted to go for a morning swim but I couldn’t find my goggles so I just took a shower and walked the dawg. Thank God for cold water!
Yesterday I “obtained” (bought used from a friend) an XM Receiver. I subscribed and it seems pretty cool.

Here’s some pics from this week. Click to enlarge!

Turning around to take off from Little Cayman, This is the runway!
The Barge” that goes to Little Cayman and Cayman Brac once or twice a week.
Shipwrecked, don’t let this happen to your ship. (see the snorkelers?)

I am at the airport, getting ready to head back. I can’t decide whether to
go home, then go back into town to work, or just go into work tnd then go
home later. I’ll decide when I land.
I left my freekin keys in my luggage so I’ll be digging in my suitcase in
the parking lot…..
I had a productive trip, installed two new transmitters and fixed the
antenna. but we need to replace that antenna soon.


I’m on Cayman Brac. I haven’t had internet access while I’m here. I’m
emailing this from my phone. I will be back tomorrow. (Wednesday)
I am sitting on top of a big rock, waiting for my ride. It is hot!!
