Gone Fishing




Thanksgiving morning, we took Buby fishing and 4-wheelin'. Why not. Later on, we were going to fry a turkey in 59 minutes. So we were free as... birds. He showed off his reel and rod skills for Grandma and Grandpa. It was all smiles... UNTIL. I noticed Buby's boots slipping in the mud. It looked like he might go in the water. Daddy was standing right behind him, and I was off to the side snapping photos. But my instincts told me to leap over a big rock and grab him. Just then I slipped and fell in the river. Sideways. I was soaking and freezing. Thank God the belly didn't hit any rocks. Unfortunately, I did submerge my camera and bruise up my knees and elbow... and ego. The guys fished me out and wrapped me in a blanket. I felt so dumb. Yesterday Buby was outside with Daddy and some neighbors. He told everyone "BIG CABOOM. MAMA FELL IN THE WATER AND SCARED THE DUCKS AWAY."
