He and his wife, Arline, keep a summer trailer on the shores of a small lake about an hour west of here, Lake Alice. We all went out for a very good lunch then returned to Lake Alice for a cruise on their new pontoon boat. It was a beautiful, sunny but coolish day and I absolutely couldn't wait to get out on the water again.

Arline has had MS for years, but it doesn't slow her down. She rides her snazzy candy apple red scooter at breakneck speed. Its hard to keep up with her. Mike attaches a small wagon to it's "trailer hitch" and she heads down the road to pick up fresh veggies at a nearby farm stand. She happily carries the other ladies wares in her little wagon, such a deal!

|Ah....out on the water again with Mike and Arline|
After our lovely ride, Mike brought out another one of his "toys".....a powerful and very maneuverable little remote control car. He uses it to keep the Canada Geese off everyone's lawns. Its just an excuse to play, I think.

|It actually does a great job of keeping the lawns clear of annoying goose droppings|
|and it entertains the guys when its not working.|
