A fabulous weekend weather wise.
The storm that hit the GTA on Friday night didn't really materialize into much in the Kawarthas, we got some rain, but it was much needed.
I spent Friday power washing my entire empire. The decks, the docks and the tin palace.
Power washing is extremely enjoyable when the temperature is 31 celsius - the mist blows back into your face - its very refreshing.
Saturday afternoon saw another bocce battle on the beach with most of the boys trying figure out what's happened to my game this year. It's up a notch or three.
Saturday night featured a lovely spaghetti dinner at Bruce and Lisa Mallory's, and then it was a trek up to the Tiki Bar to crack and bottle of cheap scotch.
All in all, not very eventful but extremely enjoyable.
And I recieved some good news on Saturday afternoon. After a year of trying to find a lower unit for my engine, a guy near Bobcaygeon got her fixed up in a week.
I really appreciate what this guy did for me but he's a bit of an odd ball.
On Saturday morning he phoned me and started giving me crap because the power tilt on the boat wasn't working.
It was weird. For some reason it was my fault the power tilt didn't work react exactly the way he wanted.
"When was the last time this thing was working." he bellowed into the phone.
"Last year." I said.
"Well it's not working now, and I can't start the engine." he declared.
"I don't know what to say." I retorted. "I'm the customer, and you're the mechanic, so I guess you should fix it."
"You bring it up here and I have no idea what's going on, so you can seen where I'm coming from." he said.
"No I can't see where you're coming from. I gave you the boat to fix it and now you're on the phone yelling at me, and to tell you the truth Chris, you're pissing me off. Fix the damn' boat."
He called me a half hour later and the boat was fixed. I hope he didn't spit in it.
