You know when a kid is in the backseat of the car and he wont quit asking if we are there yet?

Mr. Float Stanley has become a real pain in my butt!

Everyday....EVERYDAY he asks if he is going to the BWCA. I keep telling him that the water is hard and no one is paddlin' until at least March/April. I think he's got seasonal depression.

Poor thing.

I found him huggin' my paddle yesterday....I know how he feels!

He's very excited about wingnight because he knows he will be handed off to another great group of paddlers but if someone needs him before then...let me know and we can make arrangements.

Quityerbellyaching FS. Maybe he needs to be whupped and sent to bed without any supper. (Or is that considered abuse by the PFD Protection League?)

i wonder if a pfd's age is similar to dog years. if so, hes going thru those tough teens now. id gently tell him his behavior is not acceptable. if that doesnt work, take away his closed cell foam.....err, phone. :)

poor float..... I think he is just misunderstood.


He feels like the rest of us. He just wants to get out on the lakes and soon!
Hang in there Float! Spring will be here before you know it!


You could always come with Mr. Trix & I up to Gunflint Lodge next month. We can let you float around in the jacuzzi!

Stan,


Hang in there Bro. I know what it's like being stuck in a house with a woman.


Think ahead to August...Quetico...Man Chain with the MEN! We will get our "float" on and listen to the Doors and Pink Floyd...

Bring him to Copia. We will pour a couple beers down his buckles and straighten him out.

Hell I thought it was gonna be about me. Was wondering what the hell I did or didn't do. Was afraid to open this one. I live in constant fear.

Hey Float, if you're not busy the week of July 4th I'd be happy to have you come to Cub Scout camp and then go along on the post camp trip to Sylvania Wilderness w/my son and some of his Cub Scout friends....


Let me know!

why can't Float Stanley do a winter trip? broaden his horizons??? he's probably been buckling and unbuckling himself for weeks already, keeping in shape for summer.

I Agree! Come on Float! We can go dog sledding!!!!


Maybe he can head up to Duluth for their wingnight this weekend and do some ice fishing!
