Let's tell stories!!!!!! I'll go first...

Every year, on the first full weekend of January, a crew of people head to Lake of the Woods to fish and blow off a little steam. Some of us will be marking our 20th year of going up there on our next trip. Every year, something crazy happens or expensive happens or fights happen making each and every trip memorable...(I should note, it is usually more women than men that go on this trip)This is what happened last year...as told in a letter to a friend that couldn't make it... blush smiley

Last weekend was my fishing trip to Lake of the Woods. One of the special parts of the trip is the drive up there on Thursday afternoon. Normally a 4 hour trip, it takes anywhere from 7 to 9 hours for our crew to get up there. There are plenty of (ahem) local businesses that need our support! After making our last stop of the night, about 60 miles from our destination, we were in a 3 car caravan heading north on a lonely highway. Using Walkie-Talkies to communicate between the 3 vehicles, we were keeping up a pretty good running conversation. The subject of bruised and broken tailbones came up. Traveling in my car was myself, my brother-in-law and my wife's nephew. In the second vehicle in line was my two oldest friends and my wife. In the 3rd vehicle was some other members of my wife's extended family. In the midst of the conversation about tailbone injuries, my wife gets on the radio and says that when she was a teen and competing in Figure skating, she fell and bruised her tailbone rather severely. After a moments pause, I spoke into my radio asking her "when is the swelling going to go down?" Both of the other occupants of my vehicle began to laugh and as I looked in the rear view mirror the 3rd car pulled off to the side of the road. I inquired of the third car if there was a problem. Had they hit a deer?They responded by just holding the "talk" button down on the radio so everyone could hear their screams of laughter. Oddly, there was no response at all from the second car, that being the car that my wife was riding in. After many attempts to contact the second car, my wife responded with a 9 word sentence. She said, "Peter D, you are going to pay for that!" She hasn't said anything to me since and that was almost 5 full days ago...

Sometimes you just gotta keep your mouth shut.

Proctor,
That's a pretty funny story, but I happy to hear it's only been five days and not five weeks! cool smiley
