Nothing too exciting going on at the COE, summer wrapped up with the Labor Day Weekend. Despite lots of heat, people made the most of the last summer weekend and we spent three days covering a gate house at one of the day use areas.
With the approaching fall, it's now time to start shutting down the parks and getting things put up for the winter. I was out the other day without Marti, who was helping her sister Gail move in to her new house down the street from our still building house. I was collecting life jackets from the loaner board at the beaches around the lake. Since most of the COE beaches are now closed, the life jackets are removed, cleaned, inspected, sorted and stored to be ready for use next season.
All was going good until:
I backed into a tree at one of the parking areas. Barely tapping the tree at a speed of slower than a walking pace, the bumper buckled right in to the quarter panel, bending it too. Of course, to make matters worse, it was the boss' truck I was using. I certainly have left my mark on the COE! :c(
We checked on the house build today, it's coming along, the kitchen cabinets have been installed. Marti is wondering how they are every going to clean up the mess.
Tuesday is my surgery date for my plumbing reconnection. I'll be so glad to get this "behind" me. Anticipating a 3-5 day hospital stay if all goes well and a couple months recovery to get back to normal. I'll have to hibernate my motorcycle for a while,too.
Just wanted to give an update so you don't think I fell off the face of the earth or have been abducted by aliens...
