Swimming


My husband has been bugging me to go up to his job to see his big wood and to take a walk along his skid trails. Since this is winter vacation week I decided to go up this afternoon. The sun was shining and the sky was blue and the temperature was about 40 degrees. Gorgeous!

I made him pose in front of his wood so I could get a picture of him with his long hair and winter beard.

Then I headed off into the woods while he refueled his skidder.


It was so beautiful walking in the fresh pine-scented air. Then I came to a little brook. It didn't look very wide and I could see where the skidder had been going through it so I picked out a log to hop on and jumped....

Well, that log was floating on about a foot of water and down I went getting the whole front of my pants and half my jacket and mittens soaked.

All I could do was laugh!

Oh, Linda!! I bet '40* and gorgeous' changes in a hurry when you are wet from the waist down!! How long till you got into dry clothes? I'm glad you said you laughed, because I have to admit, so did I! You might better wait till the spring thaw before going swimming again.....
Those are some huge trees your husband is posed by.
