I, like many other FReepers, lost ours in a fishing accident. It was a very sad day. We’re still all broken up about it.
I commiserate. However, you’re likely to raise the ire of a few “hair up their butt” purists here. They think that the “boating accident” quip is juvenile and “hurts their butts”.....
“I, like many other FReepers, lost ours in a fishing accident. It was a very sad day. Were still all broken up about it.”
I went fishing a few days back. Decided to polish some of my magazines while out on the ocean. Damn rogue wave knocked all my magazines off the deck.
Well,after a house fire 15 years ago I have never been able to find any trace of several valuable items of mine.There were lots of firemen and neighbors I didn’t recognize milling around.
Seriously.I have no idea who may have taken ,for instance,a couple expensive two-way radios and some tools I have never found.Much was packed from moving and it was just impossible to know what got left behind,what was destroyed in the fire and what walked off.And not insured at the time.
When the rented duplex , of my then young parents , burned circa 1956,helpful people carried away much of my mother’s linens and silverware,which she never saw again.
