The following is a re-post from August 20, 2013.
There's a mysterious problem the locals are having today.
There's some sort of miniature Bermuda Triangle out on the lake, about 100 ft. past our camp swimming buoys. Every boat seems to have engine trouble at just about the same spot. Sometimes 2 boats at a time.
They cut the engines, look back, fiddle with a few engine knobs. And then, maybe because the engine trouble is so inexplicable, they return to their seat and drift a bit. Waiting out the trouble. A few close their eyes and relax.
I'm betting it has absolutely nothing to do with the front ensemble playing right there along the beach.
Nope, engine trouble.
The best engine trouble ever.
