I'm sorry to laugh, but isn't that the way it goes? At least you had ice cream. That makes everything better.

One of the happiest days in my life was when I bought my boat. The other happiest day? When I sold it;)

Yes, ice cream makes everything better. I am sorry that you had to experience that. Loved your site and can not wait to come back!

I have a BIG desire to move to the mid west, but my family would kill me. LOL. I so look forward to getting to know you.

OMG no!!! Dead battery, that bites. Well, if it's gotta be dead, you might as well enjoy some ice cream. I'm loving the way you think! And thanks for the laugh yesterday with your comment. Next time I am in Detroit, I will know the official way to say goodbye! ;) That's great!

Is this really what happened!? Oh, my! But, makes for a cute post and a possibly-fun-someday memory! We're not boat people.

Awesome! Who wants to clean the boat afterwards anyway? Ice cream is better.

Oh man! What a bummer. Glad you had ice cream.
