My Fathers Day, boating adventure, and the first listing

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:45 pm

Last year for fathers day I got Loki, about 2 weeks early since Nickey got him from the pound. He’s the gift that keeps on giving….and giving…. The dogs got worse farts than anything I’ve ever smelled. He has some other “endearing” qualities that I won’t go into here, but I still love that guy and I waited a long time to get him.

This year I got my gift about 2 weeks early as well but that was because of how everything fit together. Nickey and I went to Yakima the first weekend of June to go to a friends parents poker night fund raiser for the three day walk. I don’t play poker very often so I was a bit trepidatious about playing but decided to play anyway. I ended up 4th out of 12 surprisingly.

My fathers day gift was for me to play at Appletree Golf Course. It is a picturesque, well groomed, and interesting course. It’s not always that way with public golf courses. There were lot’s of water fountains, ponds, apple trees and (very important) wide fairways. I had a great time and my beautiful wife came along and drove the cart for me. I was actually more excited about my wife coming along with me than I was about playing the course. She also was the photographer and took some pictures along the way which can be seen in her Photo Gallery. I did horribly but it was the first time I’ve played in over 2 years.

On to the boating news. For the last few months I’ve been trying to get the boat back in shape again – at least to a respectable level. This time I got the panels for the radar arch done and installed along with new speakers. We set out Saturday morning and I dropped Nickey and Hayden of f at the Imaginarium, it’s a cool kids interactive museum in Everett that Hayden loves to go to, and I went to the boat to clean it up and install the panels and railing. After I was done I picked up the wife and kid and we went on a boat ride. We didn’t go very far because we had to be back by 6:00 but we went down the river, fueled up at the fuel dock then rode back. It was about a good hour ride which is probably a good amount of time for Hayden, the last time we went out it was for about 2 hours and he got sick from the motion. After the boat was put back in its slip and was tied down and cleaned up we headed to Chuck-E-Cheeses to meet up with a friend and her kids. That was a pretty fun day for Hayden!

On Sunday we went to Bremerton for an open house at our friends house – Nickey’s first listing!!! She sat site while our friends, Hayden and I went to lunch and then to Port Gardner for a Civil War re-enactment. I know, I realize the irony of the re-enactment in Washington – can’t get farther away from where the war took place and that topic came up a few times (our friends are from Texas). The open house started out slow but it sounds like it picked up after a bit and there was someone who came back with their realitor twice to look at the place. We’ll see what happens.
