The Top 10 Things I Learned at the Cabin July 2007 (Plus Bonus Top Ten Glossary!)

So, I've been waiting to post this because I have this awesome picture of the "pet chicken" that is mentioned on the list, but I may just have to post that at a later date since there is an issue getting the pictures off my digital camera that is much to complicated to explain. SO, without further adieu, I give you the infamous;

"Top Ten Things I Learned at the Cabin 2007."

10. Walking into a bar and interrupting a conversation between a group of people by standing directly in front of their table, saying “Hi”, and then staring at them is weird. Don’t do it.

9. Every golf game should begin with a Bloody Mary.

8. Apparently it is not strange for people in Northern Wisconsin to have chickens as pets and name them “Dinner.”

7. If you think you lost your wedding ring in the lake, the chances of finding said ring are slim to none. Yes, even with snorkeling equipment.

6. When someone finds your wedding ring sitting in your chair after searching for it for an hour IN THE LAKE it’s O.K. to swim half way across the lake in an attempt to hide your embarrassment.

5. Singing Girl Scout songs around the campfire is fun. (Shut up Josh, IT IS fun.)

4. If you fall and skin your knee at 11:30 at night chances are you won’t remember it until 10:00 the next morning.

3.Neil Diamond’s Greatest Hits is possibly the best CD EVER. Ever.

2. Making a GIGANTIC margarita at 11:00 PM. is possibly the worse idea EVER. Ever.

1. And the number one thing I learned at the Cabin in 2007…..

The joy of spending time with good friends in the wilderness makes every day problems seem utterly insignificant.

Bonus! Top Ten Things I Learned at the Cabin Glossary!

I was finally able to get my pictures off my camera! The following picture was taken in a grocery store parking lot after discovering a chicken in a cage in this woman's car. She more than happily took the bird out of it's cage to introduce me to their family pet "Dinner." I had to take a picture since I didn't think anyone would believe me otherwise!

It's 9:15 am...Time to get our drink on Bloody Mary Style at the golf course.

Ahhhh..Sorry 'bout that...yep...it's in the chair.

Well, that does sound like fun! I'll be gone for a while. See you in mid August. No, I'm not going to any cabin, although Woodstock recording studios can have that feel, I must admit.

It sounds like you had a great time. With Neil Diamond at your side, fun is sure to be had.
