Last Thursday was our daughter in law Lorie’s birthday. She wanted to go out boating and eat somewhere on the lakes. Jeff shut down the plant early and when the boy’s got out of school we headed out. Jeff and Lorie had bought trainer water ski’s for the boy’s (Jamie 9 and Jordan 6) and after some basic instructions in the boat, and some instructions in the water, Jamie got up on the ski’s on his second try. Jordan tried about a week ago, and almost got up and did not want to try again today as he was busy playing with his Nintendo DS.
After skiing and putting around the lakes for a while we stopped at a Mexican restaurant on the lake for dinner. While we were being seated I told the waiter that it was Lorie’s birthday and after a very fine meal they brought out the hat and a “flan” dessert for her and we all sang happy birthday.
Jamie has been taking Karate lessons and tested for his yellow belt this past week. He passed his test and broke two boards together with his hand. We are all very proud of him,
I did some more work in Jeff and Lorie’s trailer, adding another bigggg drawer under the dinette. 39 inches long, 19 inches wide and 11 high on full extension slides. Trailer designers should look at all of the changes that we have made to this trailer to increase storage space…lots of new drawers, plus replacing the original drawers with deeper ones.
Tuesday I go in for a colonoscopy and Monday get to drink a gallon of that wonderful flush you out stuff. The next two weekends are camping with our old club, and after that back to South Bend for a visit with a very old friend who now lives in China. We have not seen him for about 20 years…really looking forward to that visit. Than back to Woodstock to wait for new old friends Jim and Bobbie Chapman to get here. Than on to Disneyworld for a week and working for Amazon.com in Campbellsville, Kentucky.
What are you up to these days?
You know I gotta say it……
love to all you bum’s
Jim and Linda
