They charge extra to use the boat?   Looks like nice area and great place to kayak.  Enjoy!

Speaking of rentals, I had a phone call from my tenant at our shore house.  Called in a panic because she couldn't find the can opener.  I told her to look in various kitchen drawers as there was definitely was one there, I bought a new one in June.  

Called back was very rude cursing at me.   I called my neighbor who took her one.   But Wow!  What a meltdown she had over a can opener.   Neighbor said she was a total b***** 

Not renting to her again!

Update on can opener lady.  My neighbor phoned and said the tenant returned her can opener and said she found one in a kitchen drawer yesterday.  Ugghhh! 

Guess I wont hold my breath waiting for an apology for her rant yesterday!

tonight’s dinner was at our favorite restaurant in the area and the most authentic italian we’ve had state side.

 

Nabruzzi Tratoria in Lutz, FL is not to be missed!

Nate got a different dish than the one he tried in Feb, but he said it was just as good. In Feb he had them specialty make him chicken parm. This time he got Veal Manuela.6D208B06-D234-4FD0-8737-6F6E0DE2E4E6.thumb.jpeg.ede421c75c55e550c048ea809c5039e0.jpeg

Monster cookie…I had been picturing the type of cookie sandwich you see on an ice cream truck so was pleasantly surprised

I often mess up my responses.  Like this one.  I wanted to quote your post that I too would love to read about your Greek vacation review in here. You take the most awesome pictures!

Today was corn day.  Took our grandkids to a farm, and today’s program was all about corn.   How to tell if it is ready to pick, how to pick it, along with many other things about corn.   They must have paid attention, because they were talking about many of the things they learned. 
 

It is a really nice program this place does for the young kids, and they have groups going through every half hour.  
 

A ride to the corn field in the tractor pulled wagon

We passed some bacon along the way

Picking corn “the right way”

Looks like a good one.

We cooked the corn they picked, and they did an excellent job.  Very delicious

We had the other two tonight so our daughter and her husband could celebrate their anniversary.  Fourteen years for them today.

I had forgotten Dr. Kildare.  My sister liked watching.

I met my future wife with the … is Doctor Kildare sitting behind us line at Rocky II on a Sunday night in July at a movie house.  She was objecting to the medical scene that starts the movie after Rocky wins but has the crap beaten out of him.

Imagine what would have showed up with a 90% chance.

You people in RI have no clue what it is like living in flyover land, when two fronts meet.

That's one advantage paying for premium paint vs the cheap stuff

Totally agree. never buy the cheap stuff. We had Sherwin Williams super paint put on our house and it's been on for 15 years and shows no sign of wear. Great stuff, expensive but well worth it.

Our itinerary: 3 days Milos, 4 days Santorini, 3 days Naxos. 

Sounds awesome. I want to go back to Santorini when I can spend more time there. I loved that island.

I had a client once who insisted on buying her own paint....4 coats to cover the old paint, it would have been cheaper to buy the more expensive paint than the crap she bought.

I love seeing dogs sleep that way. It's looks funny but I'm sure he's comfortable.

I always look at it as a sign that they are relaxed, comfortable and totally trusting when they sleep like that.

I love Tahoe... With my screen name I'm sure you can imagine why.   

 

I'm up in your neck of the woods right now, Fremont/Hayward area.

The Ten Commandments of Dog Ownership

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you will be very hard and painful for me. Remember that before you adopt me.

 2. Give me time to understand what you want from me. Please be patient with me.

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well being.

4. Do not be angry with me for long, and do not lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends and your entertainment. I only have you!

6. Talk to me, even if I do not understand your words, I understand your voice when it is speaking to me. You only have to look at my tail!

7. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it!

8. Before you hit me, remember that I have teeth that could crush the bones in your hand, but I choose not to bite you. (DON'T HIT YOUR DOG!)

9. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I am in pain or sick, or my heart might be getting weak and I cannot tell you.

10 Take care of me when I get old, you too will grow old someday. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say, “I can’t bear to watch it” or, “let it happen in my absence.” Everything is easier for me if you are there. ** And always remember, I Love You!

Anything with Sun-dried Tomatoes, I'm all in for. Looks great !!

 

That Restaurant has very good reviews on Tripadvisor and is rated # 1 in that town.

Wow...Covid lock up breakdown?  😮  Indeed what a nasty character.  

 

Yeah, the neighbor here came to check on the boat and told us she was very, very cheap.  The boat is yuck anyway.  We are happy with just the kayaks.
