Hot Days, Boat Rides 2019

Hot Days, Boat Rides 2019
Todd Swank's Diary Entry for June 30, 2019

We bought a new toy for our albino squirrel friends.  It's a bungee cord where we can hang food.  The squirrels love it because they can get some of that sweet, sweet corn any time of day.  We love it because they have to bounce around all over the porch while they eat it.

Work brought me to the exciting city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin this week.  Sadly this was the most exciting picture I was able to capture while I was there.  I was working.

On Friday night, "Krazy" Kory came to town with his daughter, Harli.  When Kory comes to town, it usually means I need an extra weekend day to recover from the days I spend with him.

We went to dinner at Bonfire in Savage.  That's about it.

We were joined by our good friends, Jen and Dan Walters, for some pool and debauchery that turned it into a late evening.

Dan and I thought it would be fun to re-enact some scenes from Game of Thrones.  I wanted to play Jaime Lannister while Dan thought it would be fun to give Hodor a try.

Jen wanted to show us what a card shark she is and started dealing us Blackjack.  Hit me!

The next morning, the temperatures were supposed to be in the nineties so we thought it would be a perfect day to spending on the boat on Prior Lake.  My old buddy, Orlando Mazzolini, even stopped by to join us for awhile.

We wanted to play a game of Duck, Duck, Goose but it ended up being more like Goose, Goose, Goose, Goose, Goose....

We went to Mud Bay to see our favorite nesting tree.  We were pleasantly surprised at seeing some egrets feeding their babies.  I never knew that baby egrets had such crazy hair!

We've enjoyed this purple house on Prior Lake.  Harli called it Barbie's house which I guess is as good of a name as any.

We had an intense sun beating down on us and all we wanted to do was be in the water.  Candy Cove is always a good place to do that.

We had lunch at Charlie's on Prior and had fun with our waitress, Bella.  Such a nice young lady.

After lunch, we thought a round of knee-boarding would be a fun way to spend the afternoon.  

Kory said it had been years since he was last on a board, but you'd never have known it.  He was doing twists, and flips,  and all sorts of crazy tricks.  A couple of them even seemed almost intentional.

You gotta love Summer Time!
