Manitoba Love StoryGeorge and Aggie lived on a cove on Lake Manitoba. It was early winter and the lower portion of the cove had frozen over. George asked Aggie if she would walk across the frozen part of the cove to the general store and get him some smokes and beer.

She asked him for some money, but he told her, “Nah, just put it on our tab .  Old man Stacey won’t mind.”

So Aggie walked across the ice, got the smokes and beer at the store and then walked back home across the cove. When she got home with the items  she said , “George, you always tell me not to run up the tab at Stacey’s store.  Why didn’t you just give me some money?”

George replied, “Well, Aggie, girl, I didn’t want to send you out there with cash when I wasn’t sure how thick the ice was!”

Just in case you’re wondering where I am lately (if I’m not commenting on your blogs or posting a lot on mine) – blame Socchi!
