You Guessed It!

I didn't have you on Rona's behind but I had a few of you on the MUD PUPPY .

Many of you were correct or REAL close. MM & the kids caught it when they went out ice fishing over the weekend. Luke also caught a pickerel but I have no pictures to share because it was SO darn cold and windy. We will be going up North to my dad's in a few weeks and this photo girl will be out braving the elements (in the shack cooking and drinking cocoa) so there will some good ice fishing photo's to follow like last years pictures.


There was a great reponse in comments. I enjoyed reading them all from near and far and a few new faces. I will be checking in on all your blogs within the next couple days.

I will end this brief post with a little something MM read to me tonight from a book he is reading called If you didn't bring jerky, what did I just eat?


Do you ever find yourself thinking about deer when your mind should be on other things? Have you drifted off in a meeting and suddenly realized that everyone is staring at you, waiting for you to answer a question from the boss that you didn't hear? And so you had to wing it, responding, "Um...Maybe we're rattling to often?" You may be suffering from chronic preoccupation with deer (CPD). This is a seasonal disorder affecting millions of men, often with devastating consequences for their relationships, jobs, and self-esteem. In addition to a weak stream of thought, typical symptoms include:

* Frequent urges to go deer hunting

* A desire to go even though you just went.

* Suddenly needing to stop the car to go.

* Waking one or more times a night to go.


If you have experienced even one of the above signs, you're at risk for CPD.............



If you are not a hunter or a hunter's widow come hunting season you may not find this funny but I was laughing my tail off because that is MM ALL the way. I finally have a diagnosis!

The thought of ice fishing has me shivering - you're a brave one to venture into that. Do you go every year?

The bathtub image is pretty cute!

I used to enjoy going ice fishing very much, and one of my favorite ice fishing partners was my little daughter back then. She loved going ice fishing!

THE KIDS WENT FISHING ON MCGRAW POND, THAT ISMAY WHERE THEY CAUGHT IT. THEY ARE SAID TO EAT FISH EGGS SO JOHN SAYS IT IS MAINE LAW TO NOT THROW THEM BACK IN FOR THAT REASON.

Now there's a smart way to bathe a doggie! My new babies are getting me wet from head to toe. Might as well just get in with them! :)
