I saw this duck on the lake today. My dad used to tell us this story about Daffy Duck when I was a kid. It was something he learned on a record he had when he was growing up. No seriously, it was a record: vinyl, grooves, hole in the middle, etc. The story would always start (as if daffy duck was saying it): “… boy oh boy what a bunch of ducks on the lake today.. ” This picture reminded me of that.. those were good days.
It was good day. Bethany’s boss gave her a half day and invited us out on a nearby lake for some boating, swimming, and tubing. So much fun! I really needed to get out of the apartment. I haven’t been working much lately and sitting in the apartment all day reading and creating and doing nothing has been kind of getting to me. If I knew what “cabin fever” was I’m pretty sure it’s close to what I have. Anyway, getting back to the tubing. I caught this shot of Bethany as she was going outside the wake for the first time. She had never been tubing before on a tube like this. You pretty much get on, hang on for dear life, and it’s up to the driver of the boat after that. All in all, it was 5 hours of awesome.
We are both sore now though. That’s probably why we just sat on the bed and watched “A League of Their Own.” Good movie. I was happy to watch it again. Tom Hanks does a great job in that movie. Kind of a funny role for him, but good. It’s hot in our apartment. I don’t know what it is about this place, but we’re on the 3rd floor and I think the heat gets trapped up here somewhere. Maybe sometime I should elaborate more on where I live, it’s a funny place. Ok, onward to the 10 o’clock news and late night television. And if you haven’t been in the water yet, you’re 2 days late; summer started on the 21st!
PS!! I just found the recording that my dad used to say! Took me like 2 hours, I’m stoked. CLICK TO LISTEN!
