Note To Self:

Be sure the anchor is up before water skiing!

I wish I could have been underwater watching when Dave yelled "HIT IT!" and I gave it full throttle to pull him out of the water on his slalom ski. No wonder he couldn't get up. What a racket the outboard made when I throttled back and then the engine stalled. At first we couldn't figure out what had happened and then Jim said, "It looks like there is a chain wrapped around the prop!"

When we realized what we had done, boy did we ever laugh....once we got it untangled and made sure the engine still ran and shifted. Luckily all that had to be done was to file the edges of the propeller. It will be awhile before we live this one down, that's for sure.

Once we got back to business, Jim flew on two skis as Dave drives.

Where did Jim go? Oops, big splash, no Jim.

Then it was Bill's turn to try, with a little (?) help from Jim.

Rocky was on shore and waded out for a shot at it too.

Time for some experimental fun on the "Billy-board", Interim Bill's invention.

Not only was this one of the most fun days we've had in the middle of winter, but it was also one of the funniest!
