Hubby's Shopping Trip

While I was shopping for school clothing and supplies, Hubby was on his way home from work.  However, he stopped to shop also.

Look what he brought home - a nice canoe for us.

He can't lie on the cost.  He accidentally bumped the button on his phone to call me.  I heard the entire sale on the phone.  When he got home, I asked what he paid for it.  He he!  He tried to tell me a lower amount, but turned red when I told him I heard the entire conversation, ha ha.  Busted! 

Even so, I still spent more then he did.  Now he's acting like a kid who just got his first skate board.  The girls are already digging out their fishing vests and poles too.  I'm looking forward to a relaxing row through the lake or river.

Now I have some leverage on getting things done around here.

What fun! I can see this new purchase will add all the more reasons for getting out in your camper . . . parked by a lovely lake, of course!

P.S. Modern technology can cause all kinds of problems . . . even for husbands!

Funny he tried to fib on the cost.
Have fun, but be careful. Canoes are dangerous.
God bless.
