Fishing in heaven

“Keith, 50 years later I still tell people about two of our fishing adventures. The first was when we were on a boat in the middle of Pine Lake. Someone had taken all of the string off their reel and threw it in the water and it got tangled in your trolling motor. A thunderstorm came up on us. Everyone imagine this is Keith's voice LOL. I started hollering for help and Keith said, " Man don't panic we are going to be okay." Next thing we see is a bolt of lightening cross over the lake on the horizon. Keith starts hollering in his voice "HELP, HELP". I said Man I thought you said not to panic Keith said, "Man forget that it lightening." The second time we were fishing in a quarry that was halfway in Ohio and the other side was Pa. We parked on the Pa. side and walked in. Little did we know someone had call the police on us. Well when we came out from fishing the cops jumped out of the woods on us. They asked what we were doing in there and you said," are serious we got fishing poles and fish and you asking us what we were doing". Needless to say it was funny to us but not them and we got a ticket LOL. God can call us home anytime he wants, but the memories are eternal. See you one day Bro..........”
