Going Down?

I call this photo 'Man's Boots Drying In The Sun';

Well, today was another good day at the Cottage to get some work done around the joint. Yes, it all started off well enough, with everyone showing up to work on the boats and even help out with Sanja's roof extension;

I must say that with the Pefferlaw River opening up rather quickly, some of us thought that maybe the ice might not be safe enough to work on. At some point, I might have thought the same thing and may have looked a little apprehensive;

But, as the work moved on - and the river got closer - everything proceeded swimmingly and the roof work moved ahead;

After many, many hours and hours and hours of hard labour, it was time for a bit of a break. With all the open water right next to where we were working, Wevvy thought it would be a good idea to do a little fishing, so he brought down his fishing rods;

After all, it was such a nice day, what could possibly go wrong?

Nothing. . . .

Nothing, that is unless you throw in one silly contractor with a very powerful tool. And a poor judge of ice conditions. . . .

To help you out with what you are about to see, the tool that you see your Commodore show up with is called a Paslode cordless nailer. It's designed for house framing and firmly plants a 3" nail into lumber. It is very powerful. It can hurt. It was not designed to nail the ice to the bottom. . . . . I'm pretty sure on that last one.

It's a good thing that we had an Innocent Bystander to capture what came next and should have not come as any surprise at all.

Before you see this, I must tell you that when I watched this the first 2 or 3 times, I cannot remember the last time I laughed so hard!!! I was in total hysterics with this one & can't stop laughing every time I see it it:-) Have Fun!
