Over the weekend, while DH was mowing the lawn a gust of wind blew his hat off. Now, this is no ordinary hat, so it had to be retreived, and in a hurry! The hat had landed on the dam and was heading towards the swamplands. Nothing for it but to call back into service our, mostly ornamental, row boat.
she doesn't look like much, a duck haven at best
but, amazingly, she floats!
hat was retrieved with the multifunctional rake-oar
all parties safely ashore, mission complete
Dad had to be reassured that being called a water rat with a mole for a passenger was a good thing!
