Hello everyone. While I can't stick around I just thought I'd give everyone a nice warm 0530 welcome from nice and chilly Afghanistan. Just got back from a nice cold mission. Time for some grub and maybe some sleep.

Here I was wallowing in self pity for the near freezing temps predicted for my own event horizon when I read this reminder of true sacrifice. Good hunting, and may God Guide you and your comrades in arms all safely home again at missions' end. :usflag: So long as I and other like-minded Americans can draw a breath, we've got your collective backs on the home front regardless of the political climate. Godspeed.

Signature line witheld in gesture of respect.

Well I was saying Hi last night to the ones online at the time, but Hi all! Hey Babs! Is the water warm enough for me to dive in Florida yet? I"m feelin the need! ~ D



Wet suit weather for sure! Went weekend before last and it was 73 degrees. A little chilly below, but sunny and warm top-side. :usflag:

Air temps are dropping... expecting 31 degrees tomorrow night. Pretty chilly for here. But within a few days we'll be back to normal.

Come on down anytime girl!! You're always welcome!

Is that 73 degrees air or water temp? I can handle it if it's water temp. What are the February water temps like? ~ D

Yep, chat can be good! Sometimes, we just want to talk to our new friends on this site, even it the topic is not dive-related!

But, I can see this thread becoming a lot like "good night, John-Boy"! :teeth: Only those of a certain age will understand that.....

Hello everybody! Hope everyone has a great Monday, even those of us working on a holiday! :usflag:

GOODNIGHT LLDN, GOODNIGHT JOHNBOY. :fish:

Thanks for the warm replies everyone. Things are ok on the front. Not sure if our suicide bomb incident made the news. Probably not. We lost two. Keep them in your prayers if you're the praying type. We've kicked it up a notch to try and keep them on their heels. It'll get a bit fiesty once the weather starts warming up. Always does.

73 is water temp. I'm still in my 3mm w/ a hood and gloves. Little chilly in between dives, but if the sun is out...not bad at all.

Come and join us for next weekend girl!!!! Fingrabber (Kim) and ASDMike (Mike) will be down and we're all getting together to dive, dive, dive! Of course, there we may have a few beverages after too!
