Looking forward to.......Summer??

Yep, that's right! It finally feels like summer is starting. My vertigo is gone, and it's time to head to the lake for some fun in the sun. Brutus and the girls and I are heading to the lake to play. Don will join us now and then between work, which is kind of a bummer, but work is busy for him right now and we're just thankful that he has a job, so we aren't going to complain!
My Sweetie Doing What He Loves Most!

By now we have usually had company at least a half a dozen times, but since I was sick for so many weeks we haven't been able to have anyone come to stay. This weekend we get to see Don's brother and wife, and also our son Andrew, his girlfriend and two of their friends. It sounds like a fun 4th of July weekend is in the works.

Don's Brother Ron (teasing Brutus as always!!)

There is a resort across the lake from our cabin that does a lovely fireworks display, so we all tie our pontoon boats together and watch the fireworks out on the lake. It's so much safer than shooting off fireworks of your own. Which leads me to a little tiny rant.

Fireworks (other than the baby ones) are illegal in the state that I live in, and for good reason. It's something I have always been a stickler on. 99% of the people I know think I am nothing more than a grumpy old bore, but having worked in clinics most of my life, I can tell you that the injuries are horrible. And honestly, shooting off fireworks is very often accompanied by drinking. Drinking adults seem to lose their fear or good judgment around young children, and people get hurt. It truly isn't worth it. Every year at the lake, the people across the road from us shoot off professional grade fireworks, and they land on our roof. So every year at the lake my husband has to go up on the roof and spray it down good, and make sure that there aren't any branches or twigs or pine needles to start on fire. At the very least, they should shoot them off over the water. At our annual association meeting, we always bring it up, and every year they seem to get bigger and bigger. I guess that we should maybe ask them to shoot them off, and then maybe they would grow up and stop. Ugh. OK. Point made.

Don And His Parents
So anyway, we're on to more fun stuff. Two weeks from now Don's parents are coming for a visit. They were supposed to come in June, but we had to cancel because I was sick. We're looking forward to their visit too. Hopefully the fish will be biting! Don's dad usually catches a tree. (Just kidding Dick).

Have a great, and safe weekend everyone!!
