My interesting vacation

Recommended Posts

Where did you go DeeDee? I read in the photo forum that you and your 6 y.o. were jet skiing?? grin FUN!

I had a very interesting vacation. 1) I learned not to drink BEFOR going into the casino, 2) I learned to ALWAYS hold on to the jetski when a 6 yr old is driving, and 3) I learned what NOT to do when puttin the boat in the river! Not even going to talk about #1 sick #2 My husband and youngest son (Angelo) sprayed us with the jet ski just as Nicolas hit a wave went airborn gunned it and threw me off the back of the ski blush And #3 well, lets just say I'll pay more attention next time. cry

Lisa - It did hurt quite a bit, but once the rain stopped we had a great time.

Hammer - you and everyone else will probably think I'm a dumba-- for doing but ever get in a big hurry and not really think about what your doing? Well thats what happens when you losen the strap from inside the boat, the boat falls, crank slips out of hand and WHACKS arm. blush

BUT I have decided that every time you have a get together I'm taking the boat out and going fishing the same days! grinlaugh Not really the same but at least I can say I went fishing with ya'll. I would go camping too but its just way to hot for that. crazy

I think everyone's been there DeeDee. I know I've had a bruse or two from that. Thing it, is usually only happens once cause it's a painful lesson to learn.

Mine involved the snowmobile trailer and then slipping off the back of it when it tipped-ouchies on the shins and then I bonked my head on a the ground too. Musta looked really graceful! frown Even Arctic Armor couldn't save the day on that one. wink

Don't feel dumb. Most people just won't share their stories like us DeeDee! laugh

I can imagine that was followed by a few words that would trigger the word filter on the forum here blush Ouch that hadda hurt shocked

And don't feel stupid...the only ones of us that hasn't done something of that nature are the ones who sit home all the time watching the boober tube. All it takes is for the brain to slip into neutral for a second or two and the what the h***, son of a b%%%%% or worse usually follows grin

That avatar is enough to trigger an epileptic fit. Just kidding, does this mean it is time for me to ditch mine for a new one? I haven't caught any bragging fish to put up yet. Maybe this weekend.

Lisa...It could be worse...something thought my younger brother was my son.....

Great avatar! Bananas, pickles, and carrots...I won't touch that one!

As far as being in a hurry and getting hurt for you did not do something bright...man...I won't go there. Happens nearly every weekend.

About a month ago, my father-in-law was cutting some boards with a circular saw. He had one small piece left to cut...and held it in on hand and cut with the other (not smart...and he knew it wasn't). Well, the saw grabbed and pulled his fingers into the saw...cutting two ends of his fingers off. They are growing back...but what a way to learn.

Me, well...let's see. Cutting wood and in a hurry...and I poured bar oil into the gas tank and added gas to the oil. Caught myself when putting the caps on.

Also this last month, grabbed a bad electrical cord and got shocked. Thought...did that really happen?...and grabbed it again. Yep, bad cord.

Can't think of anything else right now...at least not that happened lately.

Oh jeez, Hammer Handle, that's just crazy about the cords!! Live and learn right?

I tried cracking the seal on a juice bottle with a paring knife and ended up in surgery repairing a nerve and getting sewn back up! The scar looks like a thick, extra lifeline on my palm....it was soooo gross and stupid! I was casted for 12 weeks since palms don't heal up very fast!

    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
