In a Boat without a Paddle
I never shared Bruce's Christmas present to me. Several times over the summer, I mentioned that it would be fun to tool around the various lakes around here in a kayak. Then I forgot all about it. Guess what Santa brought?
I was very surprised, touched and pleased. Also a bit perplexed, as I haven't the time to devote to my various activities as it is -- walking, riding the Cornelius, gardening, weaving and writing. Add kayaking to the mix and it made me a bit anxious.
So far, the Christmas kayak sits in the carport. We have no water in the pond, so I can't try it out there. Even if there was water, I haven't got the paddles yet (we're getting them this weekend).
However, who needs paddles or water when one has a perfectly good lab/border collie cross dog to enjoy the boating experience with? Murphy LOVES the kayak. So do I.
And we haven't even touched water yet!
