It looks like a storm knocked over a tree at my parents beach house and broke a couple of windows. Now we will have to find some replacement windows in virginia beach and have someone install them. We do have a person that is paid to keep an eye on the place, and he will have to be there when they are fixed. In the mean time, he has boarded them up well and so far everything is okay. I can only hope it stays that way. The local police have agreed to drive by a couple of times a day and make sure no one takes advantage of the situation.
We will be able to leave for our camping trip next Friday. I cannot wait to get to the great outdoors. We are taking a large group of people and will head to the mountains for the weekend. My wife and I will take both trucks so we can pull the trailer with the boat and the fourwheelers as well. I have everything ready to go, all we need to do this coming week is a little grocery shopping and that will be it.
My newphew is going with us as well and is bringing a couple of friends with him. I hope they will be ready in time. I am sure that they will be though, as they are all really excited about the trip too. I know that everyone is happy that winter has finally released it’s hold on us. One more week, then we are gone. I can’t wait.
I am almost finished with my mud truck. I have been working on it for so long, it seemed as if I would never finish it. Other then some cosmetic stuff I want to do, it will be ready to go mudding in time for spring. I am really excited about this, because I cannot wait to hit the mud pits. I am also condiering taking it down to Florida for the MuddyGras in Central Florida. It is one of the largest mudding get togethers there are. Of course, I will have to trailer it down there, but that is no problem either. We will make it one way or another. Here is a pic of the MuddyGras festival.
Well business is doing well, but the weather is not being cooperative. There has been nothing but rain, and just when it clears up and the ground dries up, it rains again. That makes it very difficult to pour concrete. Other then that, I have had a lot of new contracts for us and the spring and summer work looks to be really good this year. There is a lot of building and reconstruction going on. I am certainly glad we do a little bit of everything. It keeps us busy when everyone else is floundering.
There was one really good thing happened this morning. Apparently my rayban sunglasses came in the mail yesterday. I didn’t see the package last night, because I was so tired. I had dinner and went to bed early. This morning my wife had put the package in the kitchen so I wouldn’t miss it. So I guess that is one ray of sunlight in my day today. For that I am happy.
