Toys and Accessories

Loretta and I each got something new this week. Hers is more fun, but mine is necessary for us to be able to have future fun.

My "new" car didn't have the crossbars for a roof rack. Unfortunately, those are NOT cheap for cars with flush-mounted rails. So, my big purchase of the summer was crossbars.

They went on pretty easily. It actually took a lot longer to find bars made to fit my year and model. None of the generic brands would work. But what is that blue thing?

Well, Loretta found a kayak on sale that she likes, so with the rack installed- one of today's projects- we went and picked it up.

Now she has a kayak but no bike. I have a bike but no kayak. However, I have a roof rack. There is something wrong with the current coordination of equipment. But we'll eventually get our planets and stars aligned.

Time is required for the stars to align. Hopefully they do that soon for you.
