after 4 straight days of fun in the sun and all the work that goes into cooking, boating, and especially cleaning up afterwards, I could barely climb into bed last night. Keeping up with 9 to 18 year-olds is tough on an old guy. And the good part - they will be back tomorrow for the 4th.!!

Yea that’s like when I used to go down to the beach with the family. I was exhausted when I got home and wondered why I was calling it a vacation. Hope things go well for you tomorrow!

Scary part is knowing I will need to fuel up the boat

at lake landing prices for more tubing and knee boarding - and that tank holds many gallons.

Father n Law has a pontoon and it was a crazy number to fill it up. Made me feel guilty for even riding on it. Lake prices are already jacked up before all this other started.

But I haven't noticed any guilt on the faces of my grandkids.

Yep, my family used to own a lake house on Fountain Lake

(also known as "Clear Lake") near Eutawville, SC. On any weekend during the summer, ESPECIALLY on weekends like the 4th of July, there would be so many boats on the lake pulling skiers, you would have to "merge into traffic" and join the circular convoy. Everybody had to cruise at the same speed to keep from running over each other. And, you had to allow enough room left and right to maneuver whenever a skier would fall, to avoid running over them, as well.

Since I was a lousy skier, I spent a lot of time being the "designated boat driver".

My son, BigAl, wanted to go play basketball yesterday so I reluctantly said sure why not. He wanted to play one on one to 21, but I just laughed and said how about horse. Of course he beat me. Then we threw the baseball like we did when he played little league years ago (and wore #31). He got a kick out of making me run and stretch for it.

Now I'm sore and the shoulder hurts and had to take an ibuprofen. But I wouldn't trade the father son time for anything. And I really need to get back to working out and riding the stationary bike some; it's an off and on relationship with exercise.

I understand. I try to play 27 holes on Wednesdays and cart or no cart that’s a lot of walking. Trying to stay in shape is like having another job.

My son is now 21 and I would do anything to go back and play more catch with him. Priorities as a young parent are sometimes not what they should have been and that is definitely on me. Me and his mom separated 5 years ago and seeing my kids since they do not live with me and the fact they are basically grown and have their own lives is very difficult.
