Shards of A Vacation Comedy

Just then some crazy dude in a large pleasure craft approached the docks way to quickly. His wake caused our boat dip wildly and as it did we swung around.

SMASH! One of the pylons ripped right into the large plate glass window of our boat. Shards of glass showered over the women cowering inside. It was right next to Georgia and she was covered in glass. Fortunately she was unhurt.

We bounced around for a while as we waited for the storm to subside. When we could move again we retraced our route and returned under the bridge to the exact place where I had suggested to "captain" Perry that we wait out the tide and the storm.

There we inquired about replacing the broken window. Yes, it could be done. But not immediately. It would have to be specially cut and that would take time. They fitted us with some plexiglass and promised to send the replacement window to meet us at a designated location. It cost seven hundred and fifty bucks.

"Captain" Perry was doing some quick math in his head. He said "well, it is not too bad. It will only cost us one hundered eighty-seven fifty each." Whoa! Hold on there Perry" I said. Remember how you said "I am paying for this" right before we left this dock not too long ago?" "Captain" Perry paid the bill and never again declared he was "paying" for the remainder of the trip. Lol.

Not much else of note happened the next two days. We went up the Seminole River a bit and then got into kayaks and floats and went exploring. We heard some serious buzzing and figured perhaps Killer Bees would constitute the next disaster but nothing came of it fortunately.
Perry spent some serious bucks on a new fishing pole and was showing it off. But he left it propped on deck and a fish must have hooked himself and pulled it into the depths.

The next day (our last) as always I was first up and I saw a fishing line stretched across the anchor line. I pulled on it and attatched to one end was a fish! I began pulling the other way and eventually I reeled in Perry's fishing rod so that at least was saved. (it really was a nice one).

Oh, one last thing to leave y'all with. The night we skinny dipped was the most fun we had. Later that night Georgia wanted me to shave her. Grinning broadly I lathered her up....schwick! schwick! schwick! Yes, that was definately the most fun I had the entire trip. THE END

Thank you for following the story, candysoveryverysleepy. I hope you enjoyed your little trip to my lower basement. I was a relatively tame and normal blogger at this time, was I not?
