3521 lori jet skiWe launched the stand-up jet-ski today. To our relief, and delight, it ran beautifully. In the afternoon, Lori wanted to take the ski out so I followed along in the boat as the Jet Ski Support Crew. We went up to the Boyz’ house as they were in Hollywood for the weekend.

When we approached the shoreline I could see VERY dark gray clouds 3563 stormfilled the sky up-river. Down-river, however, it still looked like clear blue sky. It seemed as though a distinct line between gray and blue dissected the Boyz’ house.

I didn’t realize how loopy Lori had become until she started to ride the jet ski home. It was almost as bad as the drunk Paul on the stand-up a few 3579 stormyears ago – ride along a short ways, fall down, get up, ride, fall.

It took half an hour to get from the Boyz’ house to our house. Actually, with all the falling I’m surprised it didn’t take longer. I kept offering to ride the stand-up, but she refused.weather map 620
