On September 31st 2007 Mr Fixit and I drove all the way to Lake Of The Ozarks to look at a boat that was for sale. The boat was even better than the pictures showed and the people were so nice that we felt we'd known them all our lives. We ended up staying all day just visiting with Jan and Dave and then finally we signed the papers and headed home to Kansas.
Oh how we loved that boat and we took her out about every weekend and sometimes during the week. We would fly around the lake for a while then go drop anchor and throw out the floating mattress and chair and just relax and enjoy the water....sigh. It had a stereo and if we felt like it we'd listen to that or just the peace and quiet of the lake. It was a wonderful way to cool off on a hot day.
We had life jackets for the little dogs and we'd put them in the water to cool off..it was a good time.
Then we moved to the country and further from the lake and sadly we made the decision to put her up for sale. I put an ad on Craigslist at noon and about an hour later we had a fellow coming to see the boat from out of town. He bought it on the spot. So...it was with a heavy heart that we watched our 'baby' pull away down our dirt road.
We'll miss our times at the lake....but.....

....I guess I shouldn't feel too bad because now some of that money will go towards our new SCREENED PORCH!
Life goes on.
