I really, really wanted to go to the beach this weekend but inconvenient responsibilities squashed that plan for us. I had to get a new battery for the truck which I could have done in fifteen minutes myself but I had Sears Auto do it and it took them an hour and a half to do it. Idiots. Complete idiots. Gabby starts high school on the 27th so we knocked out a good portion of her school supply list. Also, my thumb and forefinger are so burned that wrestling fish in the surf isn’t a very good idea. So, no beach for me ! Come back one week !
