26|2013 The View (July 15-21, 2013)
The weather was surprising for summer in Oklahoma this week. It rained and was in the 80’s. Interestingly, during the downpour on Monday one of our neighbors’ houses finally got some attention by having a group of folks pull debris out of the house (wearing masks undoubtedly due to the mold inside) and throwing the debris in to their front yard.
Finally one of our replacement windows was installed this week so now I can see out of the office window rather than looking at the black tarp. I only wish the neighbors’ homes were in better shape to enjoy the view more.
With the rain our lawn got much greener this week and the bunnies seemed to love the weather.
Cellular service at our lake place is minimal and my Dad bought a signal booster to improve our reception so we played with it and had just about decided where to install it when the temporary location of the antenna fell and busted the antenna. During our tests the signal strength easily doubled so it will be worth the effort and we have ordered a replacement antenna already.
Keith got our boat out of the shop Saturday afternoon and then a couple joined Keith, Dad and I to do some boating, tubing and skiing. They are from Russia where boating is not a common activity and they clearly enjoyed themselves experiencing many firsts. As is typical Keith let each of them drive the boat.
Since we got a late start on the lake we were out until dusk and the sunset was beautiful.
