I had things to do in Texas, so my family and I jumped on a plane and flew out for a while. After a couple days of working on gondolas, I got to do some work "on" a gondola - the kind of work that gondolas are meant to to (even more fun than the work done in a boat yard).
Tonight I took a fun young couple out for a cruise; it was his birthday,
so she didn't suspect anything...until he proposed.
She said "yes", of course.
Tomorrow I'll go back to sanding and painting (I really do love such work), and if I'm lucky I'll get to do some more rowing in the evening.
