  1. I really love them all almost equally, and didn’t know canoeing was that popular. Here I’d have to say numbers 1, 3, 5, 6 & 7 are my favorites.

    Of all of them though, I have to go with number 3 as the most degrading. She is one p—– off lady!! She’s using the guitar her husband or ‘beau’ was going to serenade her with as a makeshift paddle to get away as fast as possible from him. Perhaps he said something about her mother, and that’s exactly where she’s off to; to sulk with mother!

    Maybe he got a little to friendly, and she knocked him out of the canoe with the guitar, screaming “FRESH!”
