Fall 2009 Maine Wilderness Guides Organization Newsletter

I just got the fall, 2009 Maine Wilderness Guides Organization newsletter.  It has the previously mentioned write-up on Jack Mountain, and also included this great little story.

One morning a husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out, still filled with her husband’s fishing gear. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book.  Along comes a Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says,
” Good morning, Ma’am. What are you doing?”
“Reading a book,” she replies, (thinking . . . “Isn’t that obvious?”)
“You’re in a Restricted Fishing Area,” he informs her.
“I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing. I’m reading.”
“Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start fishing at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.”
“For reading a book,” she replies inquisitively.
“You’re in a Restricted Fishing Area,” he informs her again.
“I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing. I’m reading.”
“Yes, but as I stated before, you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.”
“If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,” says the woman.
“But I haven’t even touched you,” says the game warden.
“That’s true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.”
“Have a nice day ma’am,” and he left.
