Never Try this

You know those television shows with the stupid things people do?  Well let me tell you what I did a few weeks ago.  The dogs wanted to go for a walk so badly.  It was hot but I decided we would all go for a walk.  I put Ning's leash on him and tied him to my walker.  Ning weighs 13 pounds, and yes I did that.  Then I put Josh's leash on her and tied it to the other side of my walker.  Josh weighs 60 pounds and I have no idea what I was thinking.  Off we went.  We stopped in to visit the pigs.  A bit of a test but it worked out OK.  We kept walking.  Josh would pull a little but we did OK until we came up to the bank of the lake.  Josh who is part lab took a dive.  About the time she hit the water, in goes my walker, then me and then poor Ning.
Once I made certain everyone was OK, I started laughing.  I must have looked a sight.  The warm water was not terrible, then I noticed a little green tint and thought "I need to get out of this water".  It was when the pollen was still coating everything.  I was trying to get out, had no idea where my shoes went.  Then all of a sudden I felt something on my foot.  I was convinced the catfish were going to eat my toes off.  I started screaming.  Josh thought I was playing so she jumped and splashed so much more.
What a mess.  LOL. 
I finally pulled myself out, my walker and both dogs.  We walked over to my mom's and can you image what she thought when she opened the door and saw me dripping wet, hanging onto my walker with 2 soaked dogs hanging onto me?
So do you think I belong on one of those What was She thinking shows?  I treasure each and every one of your comments.
