with Jim and Gayle
It's Chinook (King) salmon season on the Columbia River so, as
always, we are in Washington (Desert Aire), fishing.

Jim has, of course, had to work on the boat. Along with the normal maintenance (replacing wheel bearings, cleaning carburetors, etc.), this year he finally tackled the leaking transom.
Jim decided he wanted to widen the area where he parks the
boat. He had someone come in with a front end loader and smooth

Max really wants to be able to see out of the motorhome (more than
he can see from the passenger chair). He used to jump up on the

discouraged that as it is a long, dangerous jump for him to make.
He then started getting on the side table to look out. Again,
this was not safe. Finally, we fashioned a box for the side table
so that he could safely get up there to look out.
