In which I go down in history.
Many moons ago, I rented a cottage on lake Minocqua. I set off with three little children.
Our wee cabin came with a row boat. A note of instructions was taped to the door.
Must wear life jackets.
So off we went. A momma and her three little babes. In the row boat.
With the orange life jackets firmly in place.
Along came my big sister Nancy and her son. We were rowing along just
20 feet from shore and apparently we were a sight to behold.
It seems one does not really need to be wearing the life jackets.
They can sit on the bottom of the boat and don't actually need to be worn.
Nancy and Charlie laughed and laughed at the silly sight.
I can only imagine what we looked like to them.
The following summer Sue and Cindy found a cute little orange life jacket ornament and gifted it to me.
I attached it to my purse and kept it there until it wore out.
Because if you can't laugh at yourself....
