Bailing Water...
My dad has an aluminum canoe and a small motor boat that he keeps on the Lake during the spring and summer. (He also has a fiberglass canoe, but it usually stays on land since he's dock can service only 2 boats at a time.) The folks tried to get them in earlier this week, but it was raining and the dock was slippery, so they didn't. So today, dad and I went to the Lake to bring in the boats. (Mom had to work.) Dad's pump finally bit the bullet, so we had to bail by hand. I started on the canoe and got it to a state where dad could pull it out and then get all the leaves out. Then I bailed out the boat (which I had to do by laying down on the dock since it's lower in the water than the canoe). Once the boats were landside again, it was lunchtime! Dad took me out for General Tso's at the nearby Chinese place. Yum! Best of all, there were leftovers, which I just finished for supper.

While I was bailing, I remembered a song that the Muppets had in one of their magazines. Alas, I don't think I have my old Muppet Magazines anymore. But I remember 2 of the 3 verses, and I shall quote them now. It was sung by Janice.

Like, Well, Row The Boat, Fer Sure
(Sung to the tune of "Michael Row The Boat Ashore")

Like, well, row the boat, fer sure
Hey it's cool, yeah.
Like, well, row the boat, fer sure
Hey it's cool, yeah.


Floyd had hoped to trim the sail,
Hey it's cool, yeah,
But we need all hands to bail,
Hey it's cool, yeah.


Like, well, row the boat, fer sure
Hey it's cool, yeah.
Like, well, row the boat, fer sure
Hey it's cool, yeah.


We're in the drink and I do wish,
Hey it's cool, yeah,
We didn't drill that hole to fish,
Hey it's cool, yeah.


Like, well, row the boat, fer sure
Hey it's cool, yeah.
Like, well, row the boat, fer sure
Hey it's cool, yeah.


If anyone remembers the other verse (it's either the first or second verse - I know that last one was the last verse) let me know. I used to know it, too!

Current Mood: happy happy
