How I lost $10,000 today

Hey everyone. I know I said that I had lost my zest for blogging and I had and then Bahm!!! Along comes something so amazing and blog worthy that I just had to write about it.

I thought I had seen it all until this afternoon. I went down to the boat landing near my house to let my son do some kayaking. When we got there, a family was trying to load their jet ski. But their trailer broke in half so they had to come up with another idea. Hmmm what to do, what to do? Wait I know, we can get the jet ski into the back of our truck. But how do we do that? Wait I know, we can back the truck down the boat landing until the water comes up in the truck bed and then we can just float it in. And that's what they did.

They backed their truck down the ramp, into the salt water until there was about a foot of water in the bed. Now the truck was still running so there were bubbles coming up from the tail pipe. And then two guys got in the water and pushed the jet ski into the truck. Then they very slowly drove the truck up the ramp and tied the jet ski in.

Now the reason I lost $10,000 is because I didn't have my camera. If I did, and if I had filmed what was going on, I am sure that I would have won the $10,000 grand prize on America's Funniest Videos. I am positive of it. Only in the south.

And have a great day,

LOL. This is why these new cell phones and whatnot have built on cameras and recorders so you won't miss a funny moment! Sounds priceless!
