What the heck did I just do?

haisleyOh, nothing much. Just helped load a crusty old gas grill into the back of the Frog Hopper. It’s a red grill. They all seem to be Steel-colored now. Just like the new one the GG bought last week. We are taking our old red gas grill to the moomincabin this weekend. A long time ago, The Comm gave the GG some birthday money or something and he bought that grill.

We have always had a charcoal grill up at the moomincabin. When I was a kid, it was a teensy little rudimentary kind of thing. I can remember my old coot sitting out there with a drink and a sprinkler bottle to put out flames. I can remember my childhood dog Tigger stealing a STEAK off of that grill. I can remember once when the parents stashed the charcoal grill underneath the old wood stove we used to have in that cabin and it re-ignited in the middle of the night. “Jack, something is burning!” Yes it was. Fun times. We have had a fancier charcoal grill in recent times but the GG likes the immediacy of gas and so we are moving our old Landfill grill up there. We are not getting rid of the charcoal grill.

So. KW, I need your help! Oh dear. I immediately guessed that he wanted me to help him heft the grill into the back of the Frog Hopper. Okay. First, I grabbed my gardening glubs off of one of the yard waste compost bins. I know better than to risk losing my Flute Fingers via some silly accident. Glubs on, he tells me where to put my hands to lift the grill into the back of the Frog Hopper. I do that but whoooooaaaaah! The grill is tipping! He didn’t tell me that we were going to put it into the back of the Frog Hopper on its side! Okay, we regrouped and managed to get it in there without incident. I hope we can fit everything else that we need to take up north into the back of the Frog Hopper.

Here’s the thing. The GG is an identical twin. I am sure that I have talked about this before. I don’t really know if identical twins communicate telepathically but I do know that when the GG and the UU are working on any kind of a prodject together, they seem to be “in sync” somehow. The UU would probably have figured out what he and the GG wanted to do about getting the grill into the Frog Hopper and the whole thing would be done quick-like without any swearing (like KW did).

So, long weekend coming up but it’ll go quickly and I’ll be butt-in-seat at Cubeland on Tuesday.

Good night,
Kayak Woman

    I always need to know the PLAN before I start moving anything because some people(like my husband and my dad) assume I know the most logical way to fit something IN or THROUGH, while I really don’t. 🙂
