When she was a teenager, Hazel spent a year in California as an exchange student.
While there, she contracted three incurable diseases, namely: a Coke (a Cola) habit, an addiction to McDonald's, and an insatiable craving for equipment.
Fishing equipment, cooking equipment, camping equipment, crafting equipment, drilling equipment, abseiling equipment, cat care equipment, Tupperware equipment ... the list goes on and on.
So, this morning, I finally hauled my carcass on down to the kayak shop to make good on the Chrismas/birthday presents we'd promised each other. As a result, our Ford Laser ute now has two shiny Thule roof racks to match the ones on K & D's WRX.
Oh yes, and two unused kayaks, just in time for the Commonwealth Games.
Just gazing out the window at the streamlined things, I already feel more buff. And tanned.
Look out Grant and Lisa!
