So, on our way from church yesterday Jim pointed out that the South Skunk River by Cambridge (where we go to church) goes all the way to Colfax (about 5 miles from our house). So, I said, "You mean, it's totally possible to actually canoe to church? Anytime we want? With or without a flood? Legally?"
"Yeah," he answered "We'd have to rent a canoe, but I think it's possible."
"I love it! Let's do it!" My excitement was quite evident.
Then he added, "It would take a long time..."
I finished his thought, "...and we'd have to portage a few miles to get to the church. On the highway."
This is still not such a bad idea. I think I'll be annoying and talk about it all summer til we do it.
