Short story about my boat.
I injured my knee at work, severely, last January.
It is walkable but no one knows what the problem is. We all hope it will work itself out.
But it can hurt.
I have had my boat ready for over a month, but social obligations, weather and fear of pain have kept me from taking it out.
Yesterday, my little brother called and asked if my boat was able to take out.
I asked him where he was stuck.
It was at a restaurant on the lake we frequent.
Scherie and I got trailered up in minutes and headed out.
A half hour later we were at the restaurant and the smell of onion rings (!) hung in the air.
It made me hungry.
We towed Tom and his family to the launch and said goodbye and headed back to the restaurant to eat. Great (relatively inexpensive) food, sitting at a table dockside watching the sunset,
I was torn over being happy his boat broke down. 🙂
Today, I was in the garage welding improvements on to the trailer that I thought of.
They worked well.
I want to say one more thing that brought a smile to my face, is that Scherie hasn’t backed a trailer since last September.
After waiting at the launch for a few guys to take forever to get their boats out of the water, I watched Scherie confidently and accurately back the trailer up to the boat.
We were out of the water in five minutes. I wish I’d photographed the guy in the truck after us with his mouth hanging open, watching her.
I loudly and repeatedly congratulated her to rub it in to anyone watching.
This is a video of her with our last car a few years ago.
