My nephew C spent the day with us. He and K are the same age and best buddies. Early this morning, he saved his brother's life. That is S, who I wrote about a few weeks ago. Evidently, S and C went quahogging early this morning. Hmm, how to explain quahogging. A quahog is a hard shelled clam. One can either stand waist deep in water and rake for them or stand in a boat with a long rake and collect them. Either way it is hard on the arms and shoulders. S and C were taking a small boat to the spot where they put on their waders
and jump in the water (waist deep). Well, C's rake was on a different boat and they tried to grab it on their way by, but S fell into the water instead. Mind you, it's the ocean and the water is probably 40 at the most. C said it was the longest 30 seconds of his life, having to turn the boat around and collect S (who had put his waders on before he got in the boat) whose waders immediately filled with water. He ran into another boat (at it's mooring) and ran over a buoy before he got back to S. He pulled S back into the boat and a man on the shore took them home. S was scared, C was scared. Neither one raked for quahogs today.
The funniest part was, if one can find a funny part in saving one's life, was that when I picked him up this morning from his house, he asked me if how often I wrote my blog. I said, pretty much every day. And he said that I would have to write about him today! So yes, I am writing about you today, C. I am very proud of you for saving S's life. S must have 9 lives, like a cat! I am so happy you hung out with us all day and you looked really good on the horses this afternoon! Oh yeah, and I am glad that your skin is baby butt smooth since the girls gave you a facial.
