    My Brother-in-law sent me this. I thought you would enjoy it:

    Two hunters from Michigan -- (true story) This is
    from a radio program, a true report of an incident in

    A guy buys a brand new Lincoln Navigator truck for
    $42,500 and has $560 monthly payments. He and a
    friend go duck hunting in winter, and of course all
    the lakes are frozen. These two guys go out on the
    lake with their guns, a dog, and of course the new
    Lincoln Navigator.

    They drive out onto the lake ice and get ready. Now,
    they want to make some kind of a natural landing area
    for the ducks, something for the decoys to float on.
    In order to make a hole large enough to look like
    something a wandering duck would fly down and land on,
    it's going to take a little more effort than an ice
    hole drill.

    So, out of the back of the new Navigator truck comes a
    stick of dynamite with a short, 40-second fuse. Now
    these two Rocket Scientists do take into consideration
    that they want to place the stick of dynamite on the
    ice at a location far from where they are standing
    (and the new Navigator truck), because they don't want
    to take the risk of slipping on the ice when they run
    from the burning fuse and possibly go up in smoke with
    the resulting blast.

    They light the 40-second fuse and throw the dynamite.
    Remember a couple of paragraphs back when I mentioned
    the vehicle, the guns, and the dog??

    Let's talk about the dog: A highly trained Black Lab
    used for RETRIEVING. Especially things thrown by the
    owner. You guessed it, the dog takes off at a high
    rate of doggy speed on the ice and captures the stick
    of dynamite with the burning 40-second fuse about the
    time it hits the ice. The two men yell, scream, wave
    their arms and wonder what to do now. The dog,
    cheered on, keeps coming. One of the guys grabs the
    shotgun and shoots the dog. The shotgun is loaded
    with #8 buckshot, hardly big enough to stop a Black
    Lab. The dog stops for a moment, slightly confused,
    but continues on. Another shot and this time the dog,
    still standing, becomes really confused and of course
    terrified, thinking these two geniuses have gone
    insane. The dog takes off to find cover, under the
    brand new Navigator truck.

    The men continue to yell as they run. The exhaust
    pipe on the truck is still hot, so the dog yelps and
    drops the dynamite under the truck, and takes off
    after his master.

    Then --BOOM-- the truck is blown to bits and sinks to
    the bottom of the lake in a very large hole, leaving
    the two idiots standing there with this "I can't
    believe this happened" look on their faces.

    The insurance company says that sinking a vehicle in a
    lake by illegal use of explosives is not COVERED. He
    still had yet to make the first of those $560.00 a
    month payments!!!

    And you thought your day was not going well??
