Another week has flown by. We did a death march
on We dnesday and picked up the new car. We sure were tired when we
arrived back at the marina at 5 am Thursday morning. Rich has been
working hard to complete all of items on our boat list. And just so
know, I help!
I cleaned the port hole screens with steel wool,
then waxed them.
I painted the port holes white, then I cleaned
and waxed the port hole window frames.
Last, but not least I put two coats of paint on
the red boot stripe.

It is amazing how quickly time flies. This week
has been a blur. On Tuesday we expressed all of the paperwork in on
the new house. They notified us on Friday, they're ready to close.
Monday we will call to schedule the closing. Oh, and did Rich tell
you we bought a car? Our old Jetta is on it's last leg and soon will
retire to a car crusher. This week we will pick up our new used
Volkswagen Jetta wagon. Hope that it is as good as the last one.
Looks real nice!.

here we come! Our bid on the house was verbally
accepted by the sellers.
Rich and I celebrating with a bottle of plum
wine. Our success has never tasted so sweet.
(from Rich: my God, what have we done????)

Well our first bid on the house in Michigan was not accepted, so
today I put in a higher bid. Wish us luck.
Hopefully, our future home on the lake.
Rich and I went the Oriental Rotary club marine flea market this
Notice the very first booth is for donuts and
coffee. Our favorite.
This booth had a table full of goodies, including a furnace like the
one we took out of Snow Goose.
This booth had lots of hardware.
Rich found several pieces of hardware at the booth. About $50 worth
of stuff for $10.
A couple of neat anchors - dinghy sized.
A Caribe rib for less than we paid for our new dinghy - maybe we
should have waited!
