This last week Tim and I were fortunate enough to have two of our g’children here visiting with us.
Javan is our oldest g’son, belonging to our oldest son Jefferson.
And Starlet is our only daughter Emily’s daughter.
We spent most of our time fishing!
These kids are pretty serious fishermen (fisher people).
Lake Manitouwadge is where we did most of our fishing.
We had moved to a site under a bridge where the water was flowing from the big lake to a smaller one.
It wasn’t good fishing, but I thought it was a good place for a photo shoot.
I got this photo of Javan and had Starlet on her way to sitting beside him when the wind picked up two of our lawn chairs and blew them into the lake!
Forget the picture!
I jumped into the lake to get one of the chairs that was in the shallow water.
Then I ran over to a tree and tried to tear a limb off of it so I could use it as a hook for the chair that was caught on some rocks in deeper water.
I would’ve swam to get it, but it was where the water was rushing from the larger lake into the smaller lake.
I wanted the chair, but I didn’t want it that badly!
Anyway, my hero showed up just in time to rip (wink) that limb right off of the tree and waded into the water far enough to drag the chair back in.
Oh, I forgot to tell you where he was all this time.
He had been packing the first of our other things up the hill back to the car.
Well, after all of that hub-bub I didn’t get a photo of Starlet
sitting on the rocks with Javan.
But here’s one of my wind blown Princess.
She really is a sweetheart of a girl.
They left this morning with Tim’s sister, Kym, who was kind enough to bring them up with her when she came to get his mother.
Now we are both so exhausted we are going to just ‘chill’.
This is a word we picked up from Javan for our R&R time.
It works for me!
