Kayaking Karls

My river...

I know you've been checking back every five minutes or so to see if I've posted about my surprise yet...  You are sitting a little too close to the computer screen rocking too and fro while biting your nails - take those fingers out of your mouth now girl!  Don't you know how gross that is?

Well... I'm about to put you outta your misery!

Drum roll please.....

Micko tied me to the close line... whipped me with the hose for a bit.  Then he soaped up the slip 'n' slide and made me try running up the hill it was on, while holding a slice of Mars Bar Cheesecake in one hand and squirting me with a fire hose with the other.

Nah... just kidding!

Micko bought me a new kayak!  Wooooooot!  I'd kind of hoped he would, but didn't want to get my hopes up.  If it was a drive out to a waterfall for a swim I'd have been equally happy - it's totally the thought that counts. Pfffft!  As if!   He totally should have been thinking Kayak - all along!

No shots of me in my new best friend yet... perhaps on the weekend!  Although I did take it out last night for a test run and I love, love, love it!  We are going to have some great times together, me and Kayak.  I'm not quite sure how I lived without her.  

Micko was so jealous of my new love, he has gone to pick himself up another one today.   We can spend hours floating along the river on the weekend and evening... Incidental exercise - loving it!  

Now all we need to do is get ourselves something for the Bill to travel in and life will be perfecto!

Now this... is a great idea!  I'm going to look into this asap!

I effin Love Kayaking! LOVE IT! I'm so jealous of your present, but wildly happy that SOMEONE SEEMINGLY AWESOME got one, even if i didn't. :)

Oh, your pictures of warm weather, make me yearn for a day on a lazy river, NOT wearing the sixteen layers of clothes needed to keep warm today in frozen Ohio! *sighs*....well until spring comes, I'm setting up camp at your blog. Hope you don't mind! :)
