Carl, my brother wasn't home. I decided to take a ride on his three wheeler. It was late in the night and Little Mike and I were riding around the community center heading up between the two streets. He wanted to take the backside of the community center and I told him I would meet him at the top of the street and took the front side. It was pretty warm that day and I felt I would have a problem getting through on that side. Got to the top of the street and waited, and waited. No Mike. Doubled back and found Mike stuck in the ditch that ran on the back of the center trying to get his bike out. He was knee deep in ice water and snow throttling the gas and trying to lift the bike out. Of cour...se I said, "Your so positive you won't get stuck. What happened Mike?". He laughed and told me it wasn't a problem. After watching him fail to budge the bike, I got knee deep with him to help. After allot more laughing we finally got the three wheeler out of the ditch. We were both shivering wet and I told him I owed him one and that I would beat him getting home. Man, it took three days to get the cold out of our bones. Mike laughed at everything, no matter what the problem was. Loved that guy.Read more
