Alan and Lorraine lived on a cove at Gull Lake Alberta. It was early winter and the lower portion of the cove had frozen over.



Alan asked Lorraine 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 Lorraine, being the good wife 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, "Alan, you always tell me not to run up the tab at Stacey's store. Why didn't you just give me some money?"



Alan replied, "Well, Lorraine, I didn't want to send you out there with cash when I wasn't sure how thick the ice was!"



A love story like this almost brings tears to my eyes........

Never mistake motion for action.
