Extreme Diver Interview – Annie Olsen

This morning when I went to add photos into the website for this post, I noticed that this is the third blog post posted on October 21. There was one the first year (2013), the second year (2014) and now this year. Kind of cool really. And here’s another thought that is a little more on the spooky side… Did you ever watch Back to the Future II? This is the day Marti and Doc went to in history. My facebook feed was blown up with all kinds of info and video’s about that this morning. It’s a cool but kind of scary thought! So as we know, today is Wednesday and that means that it is diver interview day. The interview I have for you today is a great one. She is newer to diving with our group and so far she likes us… maybe we should have her checked out. ha! No, we’re a very eclectic group of people, just check out our fashion statement from Sunday, but we’re a lot of fun and I’m so glad that you chose to come hang out with us Annie Olsen! So now I would like to introduce you to Annie. She’s a lot of fun, definitely talk to her sometime! I enjoy talking to her!! By the way one quick reminder, remember that Saturday night is a fun event, the 3rd annual Newton County Firefighter’s Christmas for Kids Chili Cookoff, there are some great prizes both for the chili winners and in the auction so be sure to come help this great cause. Now please meet Annie.
