Rattlesnake Bend

Hard to believe a week has gone by since the last blog entry. We have been working on various things that were still not quite right. Including health issues. Finally the 4 mcgees are all feeling good at the same time! Apparently age is beginning to show. Yesterday was first day of summer and longest day of the year. Went shopping for groceries in preparation to travel. Everything seemed ok, so today June 22nd we released Dream Manor from the dock for the first time in a long while. Felt almost like a maiden voyage as we left the Kingfisher Marina and proceeded up the Tom-Big-Bee water way. Didn't leave dock until 4:00 p.m. intending to go only as far as Rattlesnake Bend to anchor for the night. Short trip was uneventful except the sticking throttle on starboard engine. Good ole W-40 saved the day. After lubricating several cable points it took about 30 minutes for cable to get free. Should be ready for 60 mile trip planned for tomorrow!
