Lake Powell

One day, I was sitting on a chairlift with Al.  Not much of a surprise there, we’ve done this a lot over the last decade and more.  Al mentions that his extended crew have lined up a Lake Powell trip.

That sounds awesome!!!!  Swimming, waterskiing, jetskiing, hitting golf balls into the lake, bikinis and fossil fuels…. I’m pretty sure I even said “I’d give my left testicle to get to go on a trip like that.”


Crickets…….  we rode 8 chairlifts that day,.

Maybe it is a family thing I thought.

A month goes by, I get a spreadsheet from Tyler (my younger adopted brother) asking what meals I’m going to prepare, who I am bringing and what shirt sizes I want to order.

I had Tyler check with Al, turns out Al assumed I was going and he didn’t need my left testicle as a deposit.  Al did ask if I was bringing a fat chick – I keep telling him I’m 5 years fat free.  He said it was for ballast and provisions.

When it came to provisions it was a mission.  This was just our load.


It was a great crew….  Sister Sally and Al.


Katie and Billy.
