I declared that I was on a two-week beercation on Wednesday but today came up as the day we were going to help my father in-law put the dock in the river, which is never easy but seems to go alright whenever the brother in-law and I are involved.
Or maybe I just think it’s fun. I’ve been looking forward to it this year, and got a little excited when my mother in-law texted me about it yesterday. The work was worth it; the right side of the dock came up against a rock, then it got stuck in the mud. We pushed, we cranked, we used winches and gears and pulleys and chains… complex machines using simple machines: it’s the mechanical food chain.
I declared a moratorium on the beercation for the remainder of the day. It’s beautiful and breezy, I’m sitting on a dock in the river and blogging – what could be better?
I’m on my third Bud Light. Heck, it’s not really beer. I think I’m doing alright.
