Summer has started out as Summers usually do, Hot. Kay got her Kayak just before we left for Chicago and when we returned she was hot to trot to get it in the water. Got it licensed and tagged and the stickers and numbers applied. Drove it down to the Reservoir for a test run. She loves it and it’s so easy to use. Kay spent an hour just paddling around, Molly kept trying to swim out to her and the self-stick numbers started to fall off. Now What! After trying to re-apply the numbers we gave up and took it to a professional sign maker to fix the problem. It seems that the numbers that the ODNR gave us will not stick to Polypropylene which the Hull of the Kayak is made of. So he cleaned the hull and applied a different type of numbers, which seem to be sticking so far. The Kayak carriers we ordered came yesterday so that day was spent installing them on our roof rack. The directions were terrible and also printed on toilet paper.(Not very clear and defining). But my superior mechanical skills got us through the directions and soon we had the supports mounted on the van. Getting the kayak up on top of the van was an other thing! Kay was born with too short of legs and lifting it up on to the van and placing the Kayak on the supports was proving to be a challenge for her. (She wanted to be able to do this on her own with out help from me). In the long run she’s going to need a step ladder to do what she’s trying to accomplish, or have me go with her when she goes Kayaking.
The AC went out in the Van Monday and made arrangements to have that repaired $$$$$$$$ Cachunk! Got the Van back Wednesday, took Molly to the vet for her annual shots and check-up, $$$$$$$ Cachunk! On the way back, the AC went out in the Van again. Called the Ford dealer and they came and picked it up this morning. Shouldn’t be a charge for this service. (I Hope)!
Going down to Kay’s Grand-Daughters tomorrow for her 5th. Birthday party this Sunday. It will be Sophie’s first big Birthday Bash with friends from Pre-School and Parents and Grand-parents included. No work this time for Kay and I, just enjoy the day. We are planning on stopping down in Amish Country on our way down and pick up some Cheese and fresh vegetables and take in some scenery thru Southeastern Ohio. Of course, this is all pending that we get our van back today.
Next week is grocery Shopping and the 4th. of July weekend and it looks like kay and I will be spending the Holidays home by our selves. The last several years we have spent the Holiday with the kids and this time were looking forward to a quiet 4th. of July
