Idaho Love Story
George and Aggie lived on a cove on Hayden Lake. It was early winter
and the lower portion of the cove had frozen over. George asked Aggie 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 Aggie 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, "George, you always tell me not to run up the tab at
Stacey's store. Why didn't you just give me some money?"
George replied, "Well, Aggie, girl, I didn't want to send you out
there with cash when I wasn't sure how thick the ice was!"
