When I married Danny I knew that what I had on my hands was something extraordinary, but I had no idea the extent of his ninja skills. (How could I possibly!) Today, after almost 13 months of marriage, he brought out a new trick from his ever growing bag….wart removal by Doctor Dan. Hannah has a had a bothersome wart on her knee for several years now, and today Danny made it all go away. He sterilized a blade and sliced the darn thing right off, while Hannah sat brushing through her freshly washed hair like nothing was going on. Needless to say, I am impressed with them both. Danny has decided that a way to make extra money while out cruising, is just to announce at each marina that the doctor is in town and he’ll fix you right up…
Dwight the mechanic called us today and said that when he went to put the new U joint onto the truck, he realized that the entire bell on the transmission is cracked. I guess that’s not a good thing, and I had no idea our truck had a bell! Dwight does not fix transmissions so we will need to have the BAT (big a@@ truck) towed to someplace that does. It appears I will be here for a few days!
In Dwight’s office he has several things he’s very proud of.
He chuckled when I smiled at his sign, as he told me that 300 miles that way is in the middle of the ocean. The funny thing is that at this point I would very much like to be 300 miles that way on Tanda Malaika in the ocean!
He also has this sign right next to his plaque from the Better Business Bureau. Funny guy.
Also, on his counter, he has this trap with a bright red button to press. “To register a complaint, press red button”. Danny and I didn’t have to push the red button or walk 300 miles out into the ocean. We have no complaints with Dwight, he’s a good honest guy.
The creatures enjoyed more together time today. It’s their favorite thing. Being together, playing games, listening to music, swimming and walking – it’s all just perfect.
At one point Mycah sat down with Mom and explained her iPhone to her, making notes on how to use the darn thing. They make them so complicated!
Handsome Daddy-O is always full of smiles and love, just like Mom. We sure love our family so much. There is no feeling of in-law this or that, or step this or that. We are just one big happy and very close family. I am so grateful to be a small part of it.
Early tomorrow morning, Hunter will drive the BMW with Jonathan, Mycah and Emma, to Idaho, since Jonathan and Mycah start school on Monday.
Danny and Hannah will drive the rental car to LAX to catch their plane to Costa Rica and then finally on Sunday to Bocas in Panama. We received a call from a gentleman today that wants to take a peak at Time Out, so on the way to LAX, they will show her to him. Wouldn’t that be awesome if he bought her!?
So, It’ll just be me and my main man Aidan left behind. I have no doubt that he and I will get up to all sorts of mischief! Tomorrow we will be like a dandelion blowing in the wind, each of us flying off in different directions for a while. The beauty of it is though, it that we will all be together soon again.
Please pray for safe travels for all….
