Yes, I live in Michigan.
This weather, could only mean one thing....
It's boating season.
But as this boating season begins, I have to say farewell to a very good friend. Farewell, to our boat.
Sorry Stephanie, we will not be taking you on any more boat rides to nowhere.
Ed bought the boat new some 16 years ago and we've enjoyed it for most of those years. With everything that we've had going the last few years, it's made it difficult to enjoy such a toy. So, we made the difficult decision to sell it. After a few tire kickers, the right people came along. It is going to a good home that will love it for many years to come. A young family with teenaged children at home will be riding around in their new boat. I know they will love it even more than we do.
Perhaps we will see them from the shore and smile knowing that we helped get them out there.
They wanted to take a ride in it before handing over the money, so we obliged. This gave us a chance to ride in it one last time. It was 50 degrees out there (Fahrenheit) and the water temperature was even lower. Despite freezing, they loved it. The young man and his father at the end of the video will have many happy memories, I am sure.
