how to spend a warm summer evening

1. find some family (friends work, too) and beg persuade them to take you out in the boat:

2. find some water (preferably a large body, like the columbia river):

3. bring your shades and enjoy the wind in your hair (ahh, isn't that nice?):

4. cruise by your local nuclear reservation (harness that atomic power!):

5. sit back, relax and enjoy the view (ah, the miracle of irrigation farming):

6. stay out 'til the sun goes down:

7. and down:

8. and then cruise on home (if you must):

I drove passed that river 4 times on Saturday and wondered if I could see you from the hwy.

I didn't. But I thought of you.

anytime you want to twist my arm we'll wet the hull!
