and always paddle your own canoe
This morning I went out to say good morning to Canoe and noticed that someone had been poking around looking at it last night. How did I know that? By the prints in the snow. And it's someone who is very unlikely to ever go paddling with me.
I think ducks are good luck, like seeing an albatross while sailing, because I have a friend who says "love a duck" all the time.
If she lays eggs, you can't go canoeing until they hatch.
OH- and the most important thing! You *have* to ask that girl that sold you the ticket to go with you. Otherwise, what's the point?
I'm not that stupid.
Even I can tell the footprints were made by a platypus.
Fairlane... yes and there was steam coming off them at first - hmmmm.
Beth, I'm a modest paddler, capable of tipping for sure.
Seraphine - yes, it was a platypus! Apparently it rode all the way from Australia on the back of a deer. What a sight! :)
off I go singing 'Tippy Canoe and Tyler too'.. whatever that means.
Last time I took out a kayak with a mate I capsized it in freezing water trying to disengage a jammed rudder which was foot operated.
No doubt your well experienced in such matters.
People on the shore were giving us some pretty funny looks-- why do these people keep falling out of their canoe? If they are that clumsy, maybe they should not be out there in watercraft!
Now we need a cartoonist to draw a sketch of a deer making off in your new canoe!
And congratulations on your new canoe. Lucky you! Canoeing is one of my favorite things to do.
I'm here! I left a comment earlier not realizing that it is connected to an older blog of yours...so it is somewhere but if it will take you a while to find it...I am leaving another one in your newer blog...Great reading and I am sure you had fun writing too as I have my own msn blog...quite liberating..just did not have enough time to complete my thought in one sitting...
