Well, make sure they give you plenty of drugs, lol. When I had my gall bladder taken out...OUCH.
Huge industry around ice fishing...
Got the money guys set up nice...
Just a portable behind a snowmobile for me.
Small towns at reefs develop on the lakes with houses of every size and shape.
It's a new year. Thought I'd check in and see if anyone I know is still here.....
Sheila!!! So happy you did. And there are a lot of us still here plus a lot of new friends you should get to know. Hope all is well with you and yours. I can't look at goings on up there in the northwest without thinking about you and wondering how you and the Mr. and the boys are doing.
But they aren't actually out on the ice are they and you fish through the floor? What keeps them there when the ice melts?
Some are tow trailers that lower to the ice. Tow out with pickup and tow off end of day. Literally RV quality sleepers that can also be used in summer. Very costly.
More permanent style houses the owners will pay the shoreline resort to move, check up on, and remove from ice based on conditions. Feb. 31 all permanent houses must be removed from lakes.
Resorts plow ice roads on the large lakes. Even put up signage.
A few stock photos...
And the occasional oops...for ringle...
There is several fatalities a year however. I rarely use a vehicle preferring a snowmobile or atv. Costs too much to remove it. Gets a little intimidating driving a couple miles from shore over deep water.
Thank you Foxy. We had a great Christmas, it was actually a white one. We loved it. I had my friend and her family of 10 over so there were 16 of us for Christmas dinner. She's in her 80's and she hasn't had a Christmas she didn't have to cook since her oldest son, now 60 was 2 years old. I really enjoyed myself. Got some Almond Champagne for my birthday from Wilson Creek Winery near San Diego. Good stuff. We had a good year. Mike's Parkinson's is still with us and he's getting a little worse but his painting is improving and he actually has a show at our city hall in july-sep. we are really excited. They only chose 4 people out of all the applicants. The others have different places and times to hang their work. We are getting older and I'm having to come to terms with my arthritis. I can't even open a darn jar these days.
I hope you all are doing well and I've been thinking of you, but I've been busy too. Mostly volunteering. Grandpa moves in with us this month. He's finally getting to the point where he needs help and we can't afford assisted living so it's up to us. Sadly, we're not in much better shape. Oh, well, it's a new year and we have new goals to reach. We will make it like we have all the previous years. I will say I'm glad to have handed out lunches to the homeless all these years because we have plenty of people to help grandpa move in.
