The Kayak Visit

Seems it’s always exciting around our house when the kids come for a visit. The younger set came a few days before Christmas, kayak in tow. I didn’t think twice about my suggestion they just park in the garage so they wouldn’t have to unstrap it from their vehicle. Until, well……you know the song about “what goes up, must come down”….so it is with a visiting kayak.Β  And a driveway with an incline.

What was I thinking?

Ok~Dad you pull the rope down while I back up.  Really?

    Looks real familiar. I closed the garage door on my new car the first day I drove it home!!! Raise your hand if you have not done something like this…

  8. LOL Glad it worked out okay… how did you guys fare with the bad winter weather over Christmas?

    • a total bust! we were expecting several inches of snow…sleet, etc….It went south and we just got the bitter cold stuff. antoher chance tomorrow….so we shall see?!?!? How bout you guys?

      • We got the same from that storm… but that’s usually how it is, here in the Ohio Valley. Indiana gets hit hard but Louisville usually escapes. We only got a dusting… but I heard Lawton got hit with about six inches of snow, so i was wondering how you fared πŸ™‚

        We got about two inches of snow on Friday night though… James was very happy!

      • I have family in the Lawton area that got the snowy stuff, for sure. While a white Christmas would have been nice….I must admit I didn’t miss the mess & trouble snow can bring! So glad James had a bit of snow to enjoy! We have rain this morning…watching the temps to see if we end up with snow or ice for NYE????

      • Stay warm πŸ™‚ And may you have a peaceful and prosperous new year πŸ™‚

      • Thanks so much…and to you! β™₯

  9. What fun. I wasn’t breathing until I knew all was safe.
