A Funny Thing Happened Under My Retractable Awning!

We’d all had a great day outside, but it had become kind of cool even with the sun blinding us from overhead, so we decided to relax in the hot tub under the awning. Everyone went inside to get ready and by the time we came back we heard a duck quacking. We looked for it everywhere but no one could find it, so we assumed that it must have waddled under the house or flown away. The kids had grown impatient so we told them to go ahead and get in. Needless to say they found the duck, swimming in the hot tub! It seems that we weren’t the only ones who wanted to relax after a long day.

What was so different you ask? The answer is simple; this year we had a motorized retractable awning.
