Boat in….Boats out…anyone?

  @turningreen is new to me…as I’m reading blogs and comments, every now and then I read a comment someone has made which sends me over to their page…this girl got my attention immediately and I read several of her posts.  She is hilarious and has a way with the word…if none other, you must read the post about buying her able bodied daughter crutches…just because.

Well – here’s the first pics of the new sailboat

Apparently there are very few things the same as the smaller sailboat as far as getting things ready to launch 🙂  This one is going to take some time to clean….Dave wants to paint the gold stripe…the cabin needs some cleanin’, it has a sink and a potty..which makes mama very happy.  Now…we need to get the pontoon and the smaller sailboat sold.

We had a tree trimmer out Friday and Saturday to work on the two properties.  I swear it looked like a huge storm had gone thru when I got home from work yesterday..I took these this morning after a lot of front yard cleanup.

We had a stump close to the house where I burned a lot of brush yesterday…trying to burn it out because he’s going to put a deck across this side of the house once the siders are thru. 

About 7:30 last night, starvation set it so we hit the Taco John’s drive thru and took it to a park close by to eat.  We couldn’t make it on the 7 minutes home .  Once we did get home, we could barely move because our muscles hurt so bad so we pulled a couple of chairs up and watched the stump fire burn down

Roomba is working on the kitchen and dining room, Frannie and I took a short walk…My xanga post is almost done…I’m on my way outside now to pickup tree limbs.

Until next time.

  1. @skanickadee – yes…the current house is a ranch and about double the size…once I integrated mom and dad’s stuff, I really needed the bigger house..plus this one doesn’t have steps…much better for my knees…and his too, actually.  They are both on a little over 2 acres and one house is about 100 yards from the other…I’m very happy in the new house!!!I really wish you and Craig could take a little drive and visit us….oh…and bring a Chicago Pizza with you 🙂  If it ever strikes you to take a little trip, just call, we will always be ready…we have a guest room or a hotel not far away!!!!!

  2. Lovely sailboat. Craig has always wanted to have a sailboat but it is so expensive around here to keep one (plus I have zero interest in being on the water). Have a great time with it!It really does make quite a difference when you have the trees trimmed. I hope you like how it looks once all the leaves come in.So I have a question. I’m guessing you traded houses. I was wondering why. Is this one bigger or smaller? Was it weird to move from the other house to this one?
