Well, one of them.

Lisa vs the Ants

Every few months the ants reach a critical mass and I have to break out the Terro.

Terro has made it possible for me to live here. 
We have accepted that we have to share our house with ants, but sometimes we need to feel like we're winning.

This guy was waiting for me when I got to work the other day.

He scared the bejeezus out of me at 7:15 am.

Thrift Store Score!

Because one never knows which skills may become necessary.

Today I helped these two get up from a dive to 410ft
 The plan had me and a partner rendezvous with them halfway back up with extra equipment in case some of theirs failed, then escort them up to 70ft where two more teammates escorted all of us through the shallower phase of decompression stops.
It went off like clockwork.

Salt Island, B.V.I,

 We dinghied ashore in front of the only structures on the island.
 They used to be occupied by a family that lived there for generations- one of the last being Hard Hat Henry who always wore a hard hat after several assaults by falling coconuts knocked him a little loopy.
 Right behind the palm trees is a wide shallow salt pond.
 As the sea water evaporates over the summer each year, it leaves behind salt-encrusted sand
 of which I now have a bowlful.

Found Another Anchor

This one's only at 60ft.
I swam out from the reef a bit to shoot a lion fish, and out on the edge of visibility saw a line that was a little too straight. I went over to take a look and found this anchor that was apparently cut free after getting stuck under some coral a long long time ago.
