The second to the last thing I wanted to do yesterday was to drive over 300 miles to fetch my boat. The very last thing I wanted to do was to leave the boat and trailer where it was -half blocking the driveway to a city park in Massachusetts. Eventually, someone would take offense and report it to the town. Next thing I'd be trying to retrieve my boat from an impound lot.
So after a short nights sleep, I borrowed a truck and drove back to Massachusetts. I'm glad I had a friend with me, as the boat had to be turned around by hand. There was no room to maneuver a vehicle. The trip home was uneventful -just long, as I hadn't gotten much sleep the night before. After a quick supper, I collapsed in bed.
This morning the boat and trailer are parked in my snow covered driveway. The lake is still frozen over. It's 37 degrees. The house is a mess. We aren't even half unpacked.
It's good to be home.
We got to see our daughters and granddaughters, so we are feeling fine.
