DH and I had a very good weekend. We went to my son's on Saturday to pick up the flatbed trailer we bought from him (to haul DH's snowmobile). It had been a pop-up camper at one time (converted to a flatbed trailer), and Jon had it sitting at a friend's house. The friend took the wooden floor off it, and put in a steel mesh floor, and new diamond plate fenders. Then Jon took it out to his wife's dad's house to be powder-coated and painted (we got all this for $240, a REAL bargain, since new ones just like this cost about $700 - $1000). We had to run back to WW to get a new connector for the lights (the one DH's truck was corroded), Jon changed that in less than 5 minutes for DH.
DH and I also took my grandson shopping for his birthday (he turned 12 on the 5th of June). Man, I wish I had 1/2 of that kid's energy. Mykel was a trip and a half on the way to WallyWorld......we were listening to an oldies tape (think Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs and the like). One of the songs was WooleyBooley and every time they sang that, he would sing RAVIOLI, off-key. DH kept telling Mykel he was going to get gonged, so then we had to explain to him about the Gong Show........LOL.......so then Mykel had to act all hurt (but he couldn't keep up the act, he kept laughing). Then we went back to Jon & Tina's for dinner (Mykel had been snacking all day long, and he ate 4 cheeseburgers and half a plate of chips for dinner, I don't know where he puts everything he eats, he's tall and thin, he's almost as tall as I am). After dinner, we all watched Meet the Spartans. I have never laughed so hard in my life (yeah, the fat kid part wasn't really funny at all), but the spoofs of American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, and Deal or No Deal were hilarious.
We got a motel room for the night so we wouldn't have to drive home in the dark (neither of us like driving after dark). When we checked in, DH asked if they had a discount for AAA membership or military personnel. The desk clerk said if he had his military ID, that was a better discount (oh yeah, it was, all right, saved us $37). Went back to my son's house this morning, hooked up the trailer, wished him a Happy Father's Day (and Jon and Tina wished DH the same). I ended up having to take Mykel's b-day gift apart (he got a foam dart stuck in it) and get the dart out (he said it's cool to have a grandma that can fix things), then got hugs all around before we left. Made it home in record time (about 3 1/2 hours) and put the trailer on the grass at the head of the driveway. Now all we have to do before we go to DH's step-son's house to pick up the snowmobile is put some plywood on the floor so the carbides on the skis don't tear up the mesh. DH wants to get some 2 X 4's to make stake sides for it so we can use it to haul stuff other than the snowmobile (gonna paint them black so they match the trailer......lol).
All in all, it was a nice trip away from home.
