Rob And I Get Along GREAT! (Hodgy Humour)

Friday, November 5th, 2010

Well its been awhile since Rob and I traveled together on speaking engagements and I must say it’s just like old times.  Some people you can travel well together and others you just don’t mix right, but Rob and I just seem to get in a groove that has “smooth sailing” written all over it.  Of course, we did have to clear the air on a few things once we landed in Nashville as you can see below, but it’s all just peachy keen now.

When the Caribbean Freezes Over

Sunday, January 10th, 2010

That is pretty well what it feels like today.  COLD!!  Who would have thought that we would be wearing long pants, shirts and a jacket in the caribbean?  It was too cold to sit on the beach, and to boring to sit inside, so we headed into town to taste some local cuisine.  Not the high falooten fancy smanch restaurants, but the good o’l ma and pa shops.  Of course on the way there we broke out our Canon G11’s and continued on with our crapshoots.

WE ALL SCREAM ICE CREAM!

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

You know, I think are wives have finally realized that Rob and I are not normal when it comes to our photography (in general, they have realized that a long long time ago).  We are still giddy like kids in an ice cream store with our new G11 Point and shoot Cameras.  It’s amazing what you can do with your camera and 2 small flashes.   Here in Ambergris Caye, opportunity knocks everywhere for us to pull out the small guns. 

“I SCREAM YOU SCREAM WE ALL SCREAM ICE CREAM!”

“Excuz me sirs?  sirs?  SIRS!  Can you pleas come off kiddy toys?  Dey for no adults, only little kiddies.”

“yes mam….sorry”

The Fish Whisperer Will Strike Again.

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

Well today was another great day.  The sun was out, it was a “LITTLE” warmer and of course we went diving again. This time though I was armed with my camera.  Hit a great reef dive, and then after that we went snorkeling to Shark Ray Alley with loads of nurse sharks and rays.  I just inquired about the fishing on this island and I have 3 choices.  Reef, Deep and Flats.  Well reef will be barracuda (which I have caught), deep will be grouper, jacks and mahimahi (which I have done) and Flats will be bone fish (something I have never done).  So guess what, I will be bonefishing on the flats on the other side of the island someday this week.  I just have to figure which one, and if I want bring Rob with me (the Anti Fish Whisperer.  Oh yea, our other peice of luggage arrived today and Joce’s eyes have turned back to the beautiful green color, which is much more pleasing than the Satan Red. 🙂

Here is our pimped out ride we rented  for the week.

This Hotel Bed Goes “BOING” Too!

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

Well Rob and I are overnighting in T.O before we head to Nashville tomorrow morning.  Just arrived at the hotel and yes, I had to try to the “springyness” in the bed. LOL.  The second shot is one of the first images I took with my new Canon G11 Point & Shoot Camera (view from my hotel room window).  I love this camera.  It has everything I need in a point and shoot and because it has a flash hotshoe, I can now hook up my pocketwizards for some off camera flash lighting (like the first image).  Looking forward to playing with this camera in the next few days.  I also bought a new HTC Dream phone which will allow me to monitor my site while I am on the road.  Being as tech savy as I am, I quickly figured out how to lock myself out of the phone which resulted in me calling  tech support to figure out how to get back in the phone.  I think I got it figured out now.  You can also see where I am at and what I am doing with my twitter window to the right of this post.  The dream phone allows me to easily update my status (for those of you that really give a damn…mom…dad….wife).  Anyways, stay tuned for more adventures of Hodgy.
