HAVE YOU EVER!!!
I know I usually only talk about sewing, but I thought I would tell a story now and then. Love reading some on the other blogs and I can't show any pictures of things that I'm working on at this time because they are for swap groups.
The stories will always be called "Have You Ever", so if they don't call for your reading you can skip that post. I'm not sure how many I'll post but they are about little things that have happened in my life.
My husband, as you all know, is kinda out of order with his shoulder and all he can do is think about the fish that everyone is catching right now. We were talking about this last night and I thought about when we were first married.
We use to go camping and I mean camping. Tent, little camp stove, lantern, the whole works. Back then we could sleep on the floor and it didn't bother us. Those were the days. Went fishing all weekend, could eat anything because we were both so skinny. You know the s'mores, hamburgers, hot dogs, maybe even two or more. Built us a fire every night and cuddled. Don't you just wish you could go back there sometimes.
Well anyway it was at the end of the weekend and we had at that time a little aluminum boat. Had a little motor on the back, probably 25 hp and we thought it went so fast or at least I did.
At the end of our trip, husband says, "Do you want to back up the trailer or bring the boat around to load it on the trailer". I thought now I have never done neither one but I sure didn't want to jack knife the trailer into our old used truck so I selected to drive the boat around. He cranked it and got it going in the right direction. I'm sitting with a grin from ear to ear taking off. Well, I forgot to ask how to stop it. I was driving around and around with this same speed, fassssst to me hoping it would run out of gas.
Husband on the bank yells out, "Beach it", (my reaction) you have got to be kidding. A little crowd had gathered by now, so after a few more circles, hoping they would go away but didn't, I head for the sand. That boat was out of the water all the way and I thought I was going to be out of the boat.
Just a little memory, that came back. I thought I could offer to take him fishing but I knew one of these things would have to be done by me. Backing up the trailer or getting the boat (lot bigger and faster now) around! Better stay home.
