Its the day after Thanksgiving and we are pulling MJ. Mike had to take down a small heater to thaw out the ropes and the canvas to get them undone! He changed the spark plugs. Mike and the boys made their way to Pontiac Park through the drizzle and cold, while Lizzy and I took the truck and trailer. We pulled MJ and had her put away and home in an hour and a half! Felt longer due to the cold!

We headed out at 4:15. There were a bunch of ducks under the RR bridge and lots of heron out tonight. Bill’s dock is out, along with Mike’s. We had a surprise as we pulled up to the dam, NO DOCKS! So, we slowly pulled up to the concrete median and Mike helped the puppies out and I held on the concrete as not to hit bottom on the boat ramp! Back at Preston, the only life we saw was a possum. We didn’t watch long, it was getting too cold! MJ started sputtering on the way home cuz its so cold. Docked at 5:40

Daisy passed away 3 years and 1 day ago so she is in the front of our minds tonight since she never missed a ride since the day we launched MJ! We headed out at 5:30 tonight. Its 46 and the warmest day we’ve had in two weeks! MJ needed a squirt or two of starting fluid then fired up. She was sputtering a bit at the start then warmed up and ran pretty good. We has Wendy’s on the boat for dinner. We saw 2 deer in the opening by the RR bridge! No raccoons at Preston going or coming home. Celeste pulled her dock. Docked at 6:50.
