How We Drowned a Phone
(Update: Since switching the site over to Blogger, I've taken to tagging locations, so in this updated version of the post, I've tagged this entry as the Woodbridge Land Trust).
Anyway, this new little place has a little river that runs through it, and the dogs are highly enthusiastic about a walk that includes a field, a river, a swamp, then the river again, then the field again, and then the car. Andy and I are enthusiastic too, since the dogs can get muddy, get clean again in the river, and then dry off a bit fetching in the field before we go back in the car.
In about a twenty second span of time, I dropped my camera, opened the buckle on the camera bag and let it fall, and jumped waist-deep into freezing water. Comet washed under the log on his own. Andy jumped in, lost his footing, was doused to the neck, and hauled Jax out by the collar.
The only casualty of the day: Andy’s phone. All in all, I consider it a fair trade.
