on Sunday…after church…after lunch…

we gear up and head over to pick up one of Jacob’s friends…Jacob is our “middle” child and only son…being sandwiched between two sisters on either ends…calls for  demands good guy friends you can escape with…

but this day, we recruit them to help us unload the “man” mower:

first, we build a ramp…

then we ever-so-gently…roll it off…I SAID ever-so-gently…whatever…

mower

YAY!

Next, we check yesterday’s water connection….drumroll…oh….the suspense is mounting….it’s killing me….will it hold?

water

birds chirping…ladybugs flittering…

So then….he turns on the power…finger biting….will it work…will it burst into flames?

NO…we got power!

POWER

Whoot, whoot!  Thank you, Papa!

The final test for this day…will the a.c. run?

the fan works…will it blow cold air?

YAY….IT DOES!

cold air

but what’s this…we leave to go home….the car won’t start…

oh, the irony…

we try to start the car with the little truck…it is an abysmal failure…

we have to hook bessie up to the truck…then it cranks over!

Sweet irony of life!

CAR

sidenote: Mr. Undaunted takes the battery in to have it tested and it is dead…have to buy a new one!
