My nephew took their kayak out for me to use today, I was excited to try it out but it was a fail, their dock is so high that my knee wouldn't stabilize for me to get in. I tried for a while and gave up, I am not sure why but I didn't pack a s... Read more

After tonight is done I am officially on vacation for the next 16 days! Just not going to work adjusts my attitude! I would guess that even working nights the contact with so many people makes me edgy, I am kind of a loner and love being a... Read more
