The rain is coming but the last two days in Metro Detroit have been beautiful. There was a slight breeze today. Yesterday I played hookie. I worked in the morning but it was so nice I called my friend Howard and asked him what he was doing.
Howard is an electrician and he has been slow like most of Metro Detroit tradesmen. He used to do a lot of new home construction. With most of the new construction housing market in the dumps Howard isn’t working as much as in the past years. So I called him up because he lives on the lake and I thought it would be a great place to goof off.
So I was out in the White lake area by two o’clock in the afternoon. I had to help Howard put three heads on a sprinkler system he was putting in. (I used to be a landscape contractor so that was a quick job) We did a leisurely ride around the lake. Did a quick swim as the water was only 67 degrees yet. I even did a jet ski ride around the lake a few times. I had a slight run in with a male swan. He (the father swan) got excited at us as we came out of Howard’s canal. He was protecting the baby swans. But I forgot about that when I was taking the wave runner out.
The male swan came after me as I was putt putting along the canal. (Canals are no wake zones) He almost got me but I sure created a wake getting away from him. Then I had to have a fishermen bring his boat into the canal and me come on the far side of the boat and the swan. So I didn’t get attacked on the way in.
My wife drove out after work and the four of us drove over to the White Lake Inn to have a burger. There is nothing I love more than sitting in a restaurant on a lake. It is so relaxing. I hope you had two great days like I did.
