TUBING THE LAKE
I fulfilled a promise to my now-graduated son, Jared, yesterday. It was overdue, but I took he and three of his senior friends out for a "boys only" day of tubing and skiing at the lake. We had Lake Monroe, near Bloomington, almost completely to ourselves on a blue-sky, windless weekday. We used two tubes and the guys played "king of the hill," battling each other to stay on the tube at 25 or 30 miles an hour. By the middle of the afternoon they were worn out and it was too hot (upper 90's) to continue. I will make up the time lost from work by working my typical "day off," but this was a day we will remember and enjoy for years to come.
