    Sunday Diving Report And Other Stuff

    I am really low on cash; lobster season may not happen for me, so you may not want to hang out here for lobster reports.

    Sorry…

    My investments with my Nigerian business partners has not paid off, and it’s been quite some time since I was due my first dividend cash payment.

    Regardless, let’s go on to a brighter subject before I write about today’s dive…

    UPDATE: This dog was adopted Sunday, October 29th and went to a new home!

    Wonderful doggie! Does this cute, non-aggressive dog deserve death, or a nice home?

    Think about this, because I will get back to you on this subject.

    I needed to dive.

    This was a fucked up 24 hours- A terrorist attack in Paris, France has killed 148 people.

    Fuck ISIS, so I won’t mention the tragedy of Ronda Rousey losing to what’s her name.

    My Duster has a dead battery and won’t start, so I siphoned the gas out of it and poured it into my truck.

    I made my way to Terranea Resort for my usual Sunday Services dive.

    I actually showed up early – 7:30 AM; the Sun coming up early really helps.

    I went down to check conditions.

    The calm cove.

    The Point was a little iffy, but the Cove was manageable.

    But, where the fuck was everyone?

    I mean, I was the only diver there at 8:10 AM; I started to gear up.

    8:20…8:30…8:40… I was ready, but no other diver had shown up.

    Well, that never stopped me.

    Fuck it, I’m going diving!

    I made an easy entrance.

    Visibility was great!
    Visibility looked great going out.

    Me!
    I am so macho!

    I could not believe I was the only one here.

    Just me!
    I had a great appreciation for what I was doing – I have some pen pals who are in prison, and I am so glad not to be there.

    After 30 minutes or so, I decided to head back.

    I made an easy exit and gave some advice to some divers from San Diego as to where to head.

    Debriefing alone.
    Debriefing alone…

    Debriefing alone.
    I talked to myself… about how lonely I am and how crazy my ex was.

    So, now on to a better subject:

    This dog needs a home!

    The nicest dog in the world.

    Some asshole abandoned this dog by roping him to a fence in an alley (Wardlow and North Marietta Court, Long Beach) tight enough to where he couldn’t even lay down on the hot pavement. No tags, no chip.

    The dog is scared, but not aggressive at all. He is a good dog, but I am unable to adopt him because of my HOA agreement.

    So, if you want a really cool dog, he needs a home. Contact is on the link.

    And, I witnessed this first hand.

    One of my six readers can have room for him?

    First November Dive And Terranea Report!

    Sorry for not posting in a while; I was in Reno, Nevada on another secret mission seeing Secret Agent K.

    The only part of my trip that has been declassified so far has been the Mac Sabbath concert that I attended.

    Even though I have been told I can tell a pretty good story, I don’t remember enough of the concert to actually pull enough out of my memory and write an entire post on the subject, so a blurb is included here….

    Mac Sabbath!
    Mac Sabbath is a “drive through” heavy metal band that parodies Black Sabbath with fast food themed lyrics.

    Mac Sabbath!
    They have talent, and the show props and act make it well worth seeing.

    Mac Sabbath!
    Rock on!

    Ronald Osbourne and I.
    Due to my celebrity status, I was able to go back stage and hang out with Ronald Osbourne.

    OK, that was last week; now on to SCUBA diving!

    We set our clocks back at 2 AM this morning, so this was actually a day that I showed up 45 minutes late, but due to the time change I was actually 15 minutes early.

    I had checked the swell maps earlier, and wasn’t planning on diving because it looked crappy, but I had to check it out in person.

    Randy and I were the first on the scene and proceeded to check conditions.

    The cove looked pretty calm.
    The Cove looked pretty damn flat, The Point looked OK, too.

    Chipper, Another Jeff and nice Bob showed up.

    We geared up and went down.

    The other Jeff and I went to The Cove, the others dove off The Point.

    The entrance was really easy.

    Vis was really good!
    And visibility was really good!

    With such crappy conditions earlier in the week, visibility really came back quickly.

    The game preserve has really helped bring the fish back…

    We started to head back in after 45 minutes.

    We overshot The Cove and ended up at the edge of The Garden… neither of us cared.

    As we were surface swimming back, a snorkeler without a wet suit asked us if we were with “the other divers.”

    “Uhm, yeah, unless there’s other divers here that I don’t know about,” I replied.

    He started to interrogate me about who they are, and if they know this is a no hunting area.

    He basically accused the other three of poaching abalone.

    I told him, “We’ve been diving here for years, and we wouldn’t kill our pet abalone… the most they would be doing is feeding the fish.”

    I guess you can’t really see what’s going on 40 feet down from the surface?

    The Other Jeff and I made an easy exit.

    Bob and Randy meet a dog.
    Nice Bob and Randy were met by a Divemaster Dog upon exit.

    Traditional debriefing.

    Traditional debriefing ensued – the topic of conversation was the dude who thought we were poaching abalone, lobster trips, colonoscopies and butt sex with slutty women.

    More diving to come!
