Hummingbirds 

Remember how much I like hummingbirds? If you go way back in this blog you will see a post about them. Well, I got new feeders and they are a real hit. Just now I saw three of these little helicopters all hovering around this one feeder. Susie thinks we should name them. When I thought there were two I was going to go with Marty and Jennifer (Back to the Future), but the third little bird in the mix doesn’t align with the movie. Plus, I have a hard time telling who are the boys and who are the girls…

   
 
  

Tubes

I remember when I first purchased my boat that my sister told me a story. Her pre-teen son had asked if my boat would be able to pull tubes. I remember thinking, “Yeah, I’m pretty sure my 275 horsepower competition ski boat could pull a tube.”

I don’t own a tube, but my parents do and they took the boat out last week and got some pretty good shots of the boat out on Flathead. My nieces appear to have had a blast.

My father reports that all is running well, but the transmission still leaks. This fall I’m going to pull the transmission and get that fixed.

Seeing that photo of my mom reminds me of the other thing that I need to do this winter – I have purchased replacement decals for the sides of the boat. So that port side will no longer say, “SKI NAUTIQUL”. Ha ha
