It's hot and all you want to do is go down by the river and cool off. Well, a lot of other folks are thinking the same thing and once in a while, a very unexpected visitor shows up and doesn't want to share. On this particular day old man, E. L. Phant, showed up for his annual bath. Believe me, you don't want to be downwind of this character let alone in the same body of water! Phant's appearance pretty much ended the day for everyone. We attempted to move upstream from him, but, someone cracked open a cold one and the noise brought Phant lumbering up to where we were. If there's one thing Phant loves more than a nice bath, it's a cold brew!
