Tow service anyone?

Oh the last, lazy days of summer are upon us. On Labor day we tried to squeeze in as much fun time as possible.

So we loaded up our dog and the boat and headed for the river. Soon after arriving on Luebbering's Island, we were joined by the blacksmith's brother and wife, and my god daughter.

The game of washers was on!

First it was Pat's turn.

The blacksmith took a turn.

I even took a turn, and I'm not a game player.

Larraine was last to go.

After two hours of fun and sun it was time to head home. We were invited to Pat and Larraine's for grilled steak. Who could turn that down? I had a fresh out of the oven peach pie to add to the meal.

So down river we went. Well some of us . . .

Pat and Larraine are enjoying the boat ride.

Until this happened! The battery was "dead". Pat waves for help.

I grabbed his foot and pull their boat next to ours. The guys attached a tow rope.

Down the river slowly we go.

Eventually it was decided, they should all get in our boat. That way the tow would be less of a pull.

Bentley was so glad to see company.

He makes a good hood ornament.

And that was our day on the river. Sorry god daughter, there are no pictures of you. Seems you took most of the pictures! Thank Melissa!

Looks like you had a great time. Dead battery sounds familiar. We had to use a shovel one time as a paddle 'cause the motor quit on us :0! Just wanted to say that on the PW Apple Dumplings, I don't like Mt. Dew either. Can't stand it. You do NOT taste the Mt. Dew in the dumplings :)! So in case you are looking for an incredibly rich, sweet dessert, don't let the Dew scare ya off :)!

Sounds like you all had a fun day even with the battery going dead. It was really nice weather even here in Oklahoma over the past weekend. Stayed at home though.

Now that looks like a fun day! You even made the dead battery fun. We did nothing this labor day. Unbelievable!

You are welcome for the pictures, I had a blast! I'm glad they could be of good use for you. There was, however, a picture of me and my paddle! lol
