Going with my dad to check his trot lines and going fishing afterward daddy told me to drop the anchor but I didn’t realize the anchor was not tied down to the boat so I tossed it over and I remember daddy saying wait I have to tie it off...well let’s just say that anchor is definitely not going to be used again. He wasn’t mad at all just laughed and said well we won’t be able to stay in one place now. I love you daddy.
