Spending The Kid's Inheritance...


A case could be made for questioning our good judgment these days... above you see the latest toy in our arsenal of tricks to entice kids and g-kids to visit often. We've been a family of water skiers since before the first two kids were in school (Obama's age would qualify him to fit right in with our kids, btw, maybe that's my soft spot...) They learned to ski early and when the third kid came along, he was riding in the boat with hardly a pause.

Our repurchase of our 25-yr-ago house brings this all to mind because our little lake is too small for skiing but a larger lake is only 15 minutes away. A handy marina stored our old boat and fork-lifted it into the water for us as we arrived... talk about service! Well, long story short, the g-kids are now of an age to learn to ski and the old man found a local (old) boat on eBay... and the rest is history repeating itself, marina and all! Let's hope it's more fun than headache...

If you've wondered where I've been, well... it's spring and there's stuff to be done. Plus a bit of babysitting while business has had daughter out of town. Routine has been up for grabs of late but that keeps life interesting...

Hi Karen. I hope that you don't mind. I gave you an award over at my blog.

Karen, the inheritance that is best is all the fun memories your children and grands will have of being with you. I miss our boat. Color me a little jealous! Lyn Wolf Jackson

Let's hear it for repeating history and getting BACK to a routine for all of us!

Me too, Lyn! I'm green with envy. Sounds like a blast.

My parents are insane! Next thing you know there will be a new truck to tow that sucker. (To Arkansas, I hope).
