In which I butt-text everything except covfefe

Today, the GG and Mayor Pete and any number of other folks were involved in a road repair prodject. We have a lot of big holes on our two-track this summer and our Mayor arranged to get a bunch of gravel to fill in those holes. The GG rode along with the mayor for those trips and we were texting about that during the second trip and after he said “Gravel run” and “Back about three”, I got into the Green Kayak and took off and it wasn’t until I got back onto land that I realized that I was butt-texting like crazy. I think it was pretty cute that I butt-texted my location, which was indeed, in the water right around the second sandbar or so.

It has been a while since I have been in a kayak but here I am. I just took a quick trip up and down the beach.

I managed to take a selfie that is pretty cool if you can ignore the “lookin’ up my nose” thing. I did not realize about the reflection until much later after I was done kayaking.

While I was kayaking and swimming and sitting around on the beach, a huge crew was working on fixing the big holes on our little two-track road. This crew included multiple generations from several families with an age range between I’m gonna guess about eight until [almost] 90. So here are a few pics of that. They aren’t the best because the light was kind of crazy back on our road and people were moving around a lot. But whatever. What these pictures show is that several generations of the multiple families who use this road pulled together and filled in the holes on our road. Without getting too maudlin, this is the kind of thing a family and/or community can accomplish when they work together.

    Of course dad was there with his shovel.
    The road project I remember best was the crushed culvert. There were northern lights that night.

    I don’t think that your choice of photos was very nice. I think you were just being mean. Check-Six from now on!
