"The mistress"... my competition...


The mistress... my competition... has a boy name and goes by Danny Adkins... this is where Blake has been spending all his time for the past 5 years... when he is not with me.... this rig many times has made me mad but she sure is BIG and pretty... I am so proud of my hubby...

Last week some of the families members got to tour "the beast" (she has many names if you can't tell)... it was incredible to see.... she has now left dock and is floating in the sea... still being worked on but close to the end...

Blake is traveling by boat (45 min boat ride) everyday to get to her and then he stays with her 2 nights and then comes back to me (for a night)... trying not to get jealous but soon she will never see Blake again and he will be mine again... good riddens Danny Adkins...




Below is just one of the 8 thrusters for the rig... they are huge... can you tell by the people that are sitting underneath... not sure if I would sit under that thing.

These next 2 pics were taken by a friend that got to see them leave the dock... they were towed by several other small boats...


Bye Bye Danny....

We took alot of pics (and some of them are really cool... I even got a man peeing off the rig into the ocean :-)) so if you are interested in seeing more of her... inside and out... check out this slide show.

Or click here to see the pics as your leisure.

oh girl--i feel your pain. For 5 years Gary had a mistress named USS Jimmy Carter. ha!! I sure was glad when that relationship ended!! Sadly... I see a new mistress in our future-- USS Scranton. She will get him for months at a time... so not ready for that! Nothing like having your hubby home for dinners and every night and morning!
You are strong and if you are like us... your relationship is a million times strong b/c of it!
Does this mean you guys are leaving Singapore??

Holy Moly! It's huge! I really didn't have a good feel for what Blake did/does. Thanks.

That's really cool you got to take the tour! I am maybe even a little jealous (ex oil company girl). At least you are better looking that the mistress (and softer and snugglier too).

Wow. Not sure what to say except, wow. You have some BIG competition! :-) That thing is HUGE. I still have no idea what he does. But it must be important to work on something like that. You are a wonderfully patient wife. I pray that time speeds up until you can spend it together. Missing you guys!
