A day at the lake

It was too cool today to do anything related to the Lake or the cleaning of the dock...  The water temperature is in the 50s and the air never made it past the mid 60s..

We sat here in the house staring out of the windows wishing the sun would shine, but it just wasn't in the cards...  So mid morning I said to heck with it and took the Suzuki Burgman scooter out and headed for town...  Loyce had the car and was headed for all those girl shops with fabric and stuff, where I would have sat it the car..  So even though it was rather cool, the bike was my best form of entertainment.

I decided to get a few things from Wal Mart, and low and behold there was the bride with the car...  Well now, I had a truck to get stuff home in...  Bigger things were immediately procured, like cases of pop and 5 lbs of whole wheat flour...  Those would have been out of the question on the smaller cycle...

I rode around for a while on the return trip, but I wasn't feeling it... So back home to the computer and the lack of sun...

Late in the afternoon, we did see some of the sun, and the neighbor's kids went out and swam in the 50 degree lake... Zooming all around on their jet ski............. burrr!!

Tonight we went to Culver's drive in as a diversion from Wendy's....    Big tenderloin sandwiches with everything.... Yummmmmmm......

Maybe tomorrow will be warmer........  Or not!  Who knows?
