TUBING SCARE

 

PEGGY-CAT-TERI ĖME AND SOME FRIENDS WENT TUBING ON THE PEACE RIVER. TUBING IS SIMPLY FLOATING DOWN A RIVER ON A CAR TIRE TUBE

FOR A DAY OR HALF DAY. SOMEONE PICKS YOU UP AT THE OTHER END.

YOU TIE ONETUBE TO SOMEONE AND PUT ACOOLER IN IT.

TERIAND CAT WAS ABOUT SIX OR SEVENAND EACH HAD THEIR OWN TUBES. WE STAYED CLOSE AS A GROUP.

THE SPEED OF THE WATER PICKED UP AT THIS ONE SPOTPEGGY AND I WAS ABOUT 10-15 FEET AHEAD OF CAT. CAT TRIED TO LOOK BACK AND FELL OUT OF HER TUBE. PEGGY AND I SAW HER FALL OUT AND STARTEDTRYING TO GET TO HERBUT THE CURRANT WOULD NOT LET US.†† CAT HAD GONE UNDER AND WE WAS SCARED BEYOND BELIEF. PEG WAS CRYING AND YELLING.

 

THEN CATBROKE THE TOP OF THE WATER GOT A BREATH AND SMILED.

I TOLD PEGGY DONíT YOU DARE LET HER KNOW HOW SCARED WE WAS

 

CAT SAID THE CURRANT PULLED HER DOWN TOWARD A OLD TREE††††† SHE COULD NOT TURN AND COME UP†††††††† SO SHE SAID I JUST SWAM UNDER THE TREE AND CAME UP THE OTHER SIDE

 

SHE SEEN NO PROBLEM
