Ole und Lena lived out on Stonington peninsula. It was early winter and the lower portion of the bay had frozen over.

Ole asked Lena if she would walk across the frozen part of the bay to the general store in Gladstone and get him some smokes and beer. A very reasonable ting to do, I might add. She asked him for some money, but he told her, "Nah, just put it on our tab. Old man Stacey won't mind."

So Lena, being the good wife walked across the ice, got the smokes and beer at the store and then walked back home across the cove. When she got home with the items she said, "Ole, you always tell me not to run up the tab at Stacey's store. Why didn't you just give me some money?"

Ole replied, "Vell, Dear, I didn't vant to send you out dere wit cash vhen I wasn't sure how thick the ice vas!"

A love story like this almost brings tears to my eyes......
