    Today in Oregon it was going to be HOT close to 100 in Salem. So, having no daycare kids and only having 3 of mine around I decided to take them boating up at Detroit Lake. First we stopped at Safeway to get doughnuts for the kids. As we were walking to the bakery my purse knocked into a display of wine knocking a bottle off and sending it crashing to the floor where is shattered at my feet spilling it all over my toes. The bottle shattered sending shards of glass one which hit my foot and cut it. Wine hurts in an open wound. Who knew. So, then I had to go tell someone I had been clumsy and ask for a band-aid. They then want to tell management...
    Then at the lake we were having fun tubing I noticed that the gas was almost all gone and we were at the other end no where near the marinas. So, we start heading that way. As we enter the cruise way that leads to the marina my boat begins to sputter. I had dropped sped already but dropped it a little more hoping we could make it to Kane's. We didn't. It totally died about 1000 feet from the marina but in a 22 foot speed boat and nothing but a woman and kids it might as well have been a hundred. So, more embarrassment I had to call for the sheriff to come to my rescue. While all the people passed and watched from the marina so close but SO far away from the gas I needed. Oh well. We still had fun the rest of the day.

    Did you still smell like a winery when the sheriff arrived? :shock:

    I am glad you and the kids had fun and arrived home safely.

    These are the most precious and remembered days. I love to hear stories from my kids for days that to me were embarassing or just plain horrible only to be told from the mind of a child I sure get to laugh! I am glad you are ok and you had a great day!

    A bad day in the boat is better than a good day sitting in front of the tv! And I bet it wasn't even a bad day in the boat. Sounds kind of fun to me, but I love boating.
