Karen and I had a wonderful trip this past weekend to Camp Coffey. Jeremy got up early one morning to smoke a pork butt. We took several beautiful boat rides then we winterized boats, took down boat covers. When Jeremy was winterizing his jet ski he could not get the oil filter off. This happen two years ago when Karen and I were up so I got blamed as a jinks. John Pribyl was called to save the day, just as he did two years ago. Two years ago he had the trick of the screwdriver through the filter. We tried that before we called him, as it did not work. This year John quickly took off part of the exhaust and it gave an easy approach for a large water pump pliers to take it off. Karen and I visited Mel, Barry and the boys one afternoon. Atticus had recently gotten a cell phone for his birthday so JoAnn and he had skimmed up a trick to scare me with a surprised hidden in a box. It worked. J

A trip of great food, wonderful northern Minnesota lake views, good conversation and the development of plans to visit Franklin BBQ in Austin Texas after Thanksgiving.
