A man was on the water for his weekly fishing trip.

He began his day with an 18# salmon on the first drift and a 17# on the

second. On the third drift he had just caught his first ever salmon

over 30 pounds when his cell phone rang.

It was a doctor notifying him that his wife had just been in a

terrible accident and was in critical condition and in the ICU.

The man told the doctor to inform his wife where he was and that he'd

be there as soon as possible. As he hung up he realized he was leaving

what was shaping up to be his best day ever on the water.

He decided to get in a couple of more drifts before heading to the

hospital. He ended up fishing the rest of the morning, finishing his

trip with two salmon like he'd never seen, both over 30

pounds. He was jubilant.... Then he remembered his wife.

Feeling guilty he dashed to the hospital. He saw the doctor in the

corridor and asked about his wife's condition.

The doctor glared at him and shouted, "You went ahead and finished

your fishing trip didn't you! I hope you're proud of yourself! While

you were out for the past four hours enjoying yourself on the water your

wife has been languishing in the ICU! It's just as well you went ahead

and finished because it will be more than likely the last fishing trip

you ever take!"

"For the rest of her life she will require 'round the clock care. And

you'll be her care giver forever!"

The man was feeling so guilty he broke down and sobbed.

The doctor then chuckled and said, "I'm Just pulling your leg. She's

dead. What'd you catch?"
