    Tim....congrats on the new job. We have been getting lake time recently, but missed quite a bit of time, early on with the high water. Times do change with families. We had our 1 year old grand daughter on the boat for the 1st time last week. She loves water, but hates the life jacket.

    That's awesome, Jeff. a third generation on the boat! I can't wait for that. We went out despite the high water. Only problem was that our dock was inaccessible so we had to put our boat back in the high and dry every night. I always ride the boat in and put it on the trailer now (less dock rash). But I prefer only one launch and one loading per weekend. And the more they handle our boat with the lift the more likely they are to hit something. The only guy that loves to put our boat in the rack is the one that is the worst operator. The good operators know how difficult it is to put our boat up since the weight is near the lift capacity.

    Well, Labor Day is behind us. What a zoo. Highway 44 was bumper to bumper all the way from STL to Springfield. Our marina was a mess. The lake was ok. Looking forward to some pleasant fall boating. Being empty nesters gives us much more flexibility in the spring and fall. Also helps to have a steady income again. Today is my youngest's 21st. First time to drink.....legally. Fake IDs have gotten very sophisticated in recent years. Gonna hit Springfield on the way to the lake to buy him a drink....first one I have paid for. Then, hopefully a peaceful weekend of boating.

    Had to have MarineMax replace the front end of the raw water pump last week. I found that it was leaking the weekend before Labor Day. Could have done it myself, but I had to work. So, $857 later we have a new pump. I had to tell myself that at least I don't have to do the impeller this year....

    There seemed to a lot of boat traffic over Labor Day weekend...perhaps more than I have seen in a few years.

    We have been doing a lot of cruising over the last few weekends. Need to justify the cost of having the front end of the water pump replaced (at least now I know where the water in the bilge was coming from). We have now been as far north as Cape Fair and west as Black Oak. Beautiful part of the lake. We didn't know what we've been missing. Had never been past Kimberling City. We are talking about moving our boat to the Port of Kimberling and finding a house or condo up that way.
