You’re Not Gonna Believe It

If you missed Monday’s post, I Should’ve Listened, you might want to read that before continuing with today’s post.

Ever since the minute Motor Man learned that my cell phone had gone overboard, he had been entertaining the notion of retrieving it from the bottom of the river.

I really didn’t think there would ever be a possibility of that happening. Plus within 48 hours of the “incident”,  my replacement phone was in hand and activated, my contacts transferred, and all my pictures were safe in my “cloud”.

But Wednesday afternoon, when I returned home from running errands, I noticed that the tide was exceptionally low.

I called Motor Man, who happened to also be on his way home.  We walked out on the marina walkway…..and he spotted my phone….. on its end….. in the mud.

We came home and grabbed a telescoping tree lopper tool, the duct tape, then borrowed a fish net with a handle from a friend, and back to the marina we went.

He taped the fish net to the handle of the lopper –

And, on the second attempt, “netted” my phone.

Just think of the story it could tell, five days underwater before being “saved”.

Please note that these pictures were NOT taken with my new cell phone. It was secure in the safety of our vehicle. These were taken with our camera, safely strapped around my neck.

Whether or not the phone is still functional, we haven’t determined yet.  But it’s nice to know that it’s no longer at the bottom of the river.

My Motor Man, he does love a challenge.
