William's Blog...with a smile!


I am thinking about boating...

Today I checked out some of my fishing gear and started to dust off the boat.

It is an annual ritual at my house.

One that I enjoy with a bit of pain.

Yes...I did say Pain.

Now, I am sure that there are a few that feel the same pain even without a boat.

How many have felt the pain?

Oh yes!  My family did a lot of boating in the 1970s.  I remember a couple really good injuries from the trailer hitch!

Yes, I've brused my shins many a time William Feela

   I borrowed a pickup truck from a friend.  I walked around the back of it after dark, and hit that @#$% trailer hitch right in the shin bone.  It was sore for a week.

That's funny. But it's so worth it to have the boat on the water.

Yup, I get it on the right and the left William but I pay much better attention since  that first one. It's one of the times I have a harsh conversation with myself.

It seems to be an ailment suffered by many, but after a lifetime of hauling trailers and just about every thing else, I dont recall ever hitting my shin on a trailer hitch.

William, ouch!  Maybe they should make protective padding for fishermen - or anyone else who tows something on the back of their vehicle!
