In Boobie, Expedition Single, Guillemot L, kayak, Redfish King, Spring Run, Wood Kayak on August 12, 2010 at 3:48 am

8/28/10  Okay, I will admitt that I have been working but I have also been paddling my new yak (Spring Run) as much as I can and have not worked on the new boat.  But I sure do love how the SR handles!!!  I just can’t seem to get enough of it, even the gator attack didn’t slow me down. LOL

Well sorry to say that I have not moved much with the Boobie.  I just got home tonight from giving a presentation to one of the local Woodworker Clubs ( The Florida Westcoast Woodworkers Club ) on how to build strippers.  HSN has had me working 12 hours a day 7 days a week for the last 6 weeks, and I was just hired by a new company to do what I do… Construction!!!  After 2 1/2 years of looking I finally found a job that is suited for me.  We have also been doing our fair share of camping this summer with one more trip out before I start my new job.

One of the things I have been emailed about lately is pictures of my yaks.  I did not realise that not everyone knew what to look for when searching my posts.  So here I will post the pics with the names, and if you want to see how I built them you can go on to that post

My 1st Expedition Single

My 2nd Guillemot L another Nick Schade yak from CLC

My 3rd Redfish King

My 4th Redfish Spring Run L

With my next being “The Boobie” and I am thinking a canoe after that with a sailboat coming at some point.

Goodbye Tilley Mae

I lost my Best Friend of the last 14 years on thursday Sept 23.  You may have seen pictures of her as my shop dog in previous posts

And those that where lucky enough to know her knew she was the Sweetest most spoiled girl in the world.  She was happiest when she could be outside with me greeting all that came by and hope for a pet or two.  Everyone in the nieghborhood knew her well and would ask where she was if she wasn’t outside with me

She was how ever the most camera shy dog I have ever known.  She would give me “The Look” everytime a camera was brought out. LOL

And yes she was very spoiled… by everyone

She truely loved her Peanut Butter and Ice Cream

And who could not LOVE this????

Even in her teenage time of 6 months she was a goof

The only thing she hated in life was water… Hey go figure. LOL

Insecurity was never an issue…..

Good Bye Matilda Mae.  I will miss you so much!
