Proposal


in a kayak

traversing the Chain of Lakes

passing through the tunnel

between Lake Calhoun and Isles

he looked down at me

I sure like what you're doin, says he

Great day for being on the lake, says I

I'm lookin' for a wife if you're interested, says he

Already taken! says I

Good for you, OB! Still grabbin' them. But true to your beloved and proud to say so. That is a sweet little story.

He mistook the kayak for a courtship

The Old Bag said...

I could be mistaken, but it seems the BEST way to land a wife who boats is to get your arse into a boat!

LimesNow said...

OB, perhaps his unwillingness to put his own sorry one in a boat is what made him so admiring of you for having yours in one!

I remember the last time someone noticed me like that. The year was 1987, and...

The Old Bag said...

courtship HA

Jeff--and the rest was history???

Jeff Moser said...

Yep, I guess you're right. Guess that was 1989 though. Although I had to stalk Kristy for awhile. She didn't know she liked me at first, but I convinced her!

The Old Bag said...

Yeah, I didn't really realize I liked Wheel at first either....
