A gentle day of staying out of the crowds and mayhem at the pier was most of the day’s excitement. When the Truck took me past the pier an ambulance was there loading a lady with her leg wrapped in a hip to ankle doohickey. She was sitting about half up and talking on the phone. My guess is she fell in the rocks. That hurts as I know from experience. Hopefully that was not her only Mother’s Day gift.My bed modification from a few weeks ago did not include installing the lifting struts again. The hope was that the bed would be light enough for me to easily lift to get to the storage under it. It was not to be. Today was the first time that my hands and head have ever installed one of those lifting struts. Measurements were taken and guesses made before starting the installation. Then holes were drilled and brackets installed. The moment of truth finally came AND THE STRUT WORKED LIKE IT IS SUPPOSED TO. Now that is a wonderful surprise. The heavy bed platform and mattress can now be easily lifted with one hand.
That left a little time this afternoon to go down to the pier to fish. Pop was there and of course he had caught a nice fish. Here it is posing with my toe.
We fished together and visited for about an hour. No more fish were caught so it was time for me to leave so he could catch some more fish.
Another pleasant and gentle day it was all day. Those are nice for trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
