My neighbor Rolando had a section of his dock break loose so we decided to spend the weekend fixing it

Kathy acted as official photographer and ice tea bringer

As usual, we got along just grand

A warm weekend was filled with home improvement projects. After doing the usual yard work, Rolando and I tackled rebuilding a section of his dock that had broke loose. We decided to buy all new wood so it became much more than a repair job. We spent all of Saturday and about half of Sunday getting this done.
Our air conditioner decided to start acting up on Sunday afternoon. Kathy remembered what the repair guy said last year about this time when it stopped working. The air handler drain tube occasionally gets blocked or clogged up by insects, dirt, etc. We put the shop vac on the drain and sucked out a bunch of dirt and about a half gallon of water. That seems to have done the trick.
Tomorrow evening my daughter, Kimber, comes to visit for 5 days. We will pick her and her friend up at the airport in Tampa and then drive to Islamorada for the week. As usual, the family will relax and enjoy the sights of the Keys while I go to work everyday.
It's getting close to time to replenish our hurricane survival water and gasoline for the season. Speaking of gas, I noticed it has gone up about 20 cents per gallon in the past two weeks. We're currently paying 2.23 at Sams Club.
Tonight I get to enjoy Kathy's homemade spaghetti sauce with huge mushrooms. Yummy.
