Float Trip Funnies

I apologize for not writing in so long. I should probably apologize in advance for the lack of posts during the upcoming (busy) youth ministry season...summer! Here is our most recent goofiness...enjoy!

We just returned from our annual float trip down the Illinois River. There always seems to be something that happens on these trips! Well, this year (2005) was no different!
The first comical thing happened upon arrival. One of our older teens was driving along with our caravan. When we arrived, he said, "I'll be right back" and left.
When I asked where he was going, some other teens told me, "He thinks he hit a dog, so he's gonna go back and make sure it's dead!"
Fortunately, we found out later that he had NOT hit a dog...unfortunately, he HAD hit and killed a CAT!

The next day (Saturday) one of our adult sponsors (Chuck) said he was gonna run into town for a few supplies.
As he entered Tahlequah, he noticed a large amount of traffic. Thinking there was an accident, he turned in behind all the vehicles and began the slow creep towards Wal-Mart.
It slowly began to dawn on him that the traffic was NOT because of an accident, it was because he had entered the middle of a PARADE!!! So, he stuck his hand out the window and started waving!
Forty-five minutes later (normally a ten-minute ride) he turned out of the parade into the Wal-Mart parking lot. But guess what? When he was done, he almost turned into the parade AGAIN! He ended up being BEHIND it this time, so he didn't have to wave!
Chuck, I know you have always wanted to be the Homecoming King, but that's just ridiculous! :)
