Niagara Falls 98 Years Ago
Her mother had a cousin living in Niagara Falls that year. She told the family that she and her neighbors woke up in the night feeling something was wrong. It took a while but they finally realized that it was the lack of noise. They had all become so used to the roar of the Falls that the silence was unusual enough to alert their senses. Of course at that time nearly all the houses were near the Falls. Amazing pictures! Almost 100 years old. Can you imagine walking on Niagara Falls?
One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, his wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book.
Along comes a Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, ‘ Good morning Ma’am. What are you doing?’
‘Reading a book,’ she replies, (thinking, ‘Isn’t that obvious?’)
‘You’re in a Restricted Fishing Area,’ he informs her.
‘I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing. I’m reading’
‘Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up..’
‘For reading a book,’ she replies.
‘You’re in a Restricted Fishing Area,’ he informs her again.
‘I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing. I’m reading’ know you could start at any moment.. I’ll have totake you in and write you up.’
‘If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with Sexual assault ,’ says the woman..
‘But I haven’t even touched you,’ says the game warden.
‘That’s true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.’
‘Have a nice day ma’am,’ and he left.
Never argue with a woman who reads. It’s likely she can also think.
