Birthday Boy Bob

Rejean's spot

John's shelter from the wind.

My spot

Our portable fire pit

No fish were harmed yesterday. For the third year straight, no one caught any fish. They are there but we can't seem to catch any during the winter. But we had a blast none the less. People started arriving at about 11am. They arrived on their snow machines and quickly got their lines in the water. Skip just used a branch with line and a bell on it. Who needs a rod? We started out at the far end of the lake across from the island. No luck so we moved to in front of the island. Then we made the final move in front of the house. Still no fish. But it was a beautiful sunny day - not a cloud in the sky - there was a bit of a breeze but it wasn't bad.

I got the food going at about 4:30 - everyone had a good time and left at a reasonable hour.

It was decided that every year on the 3rd of February we would have our fishing derby. Maybe one year someone will catch a fish. Our next adventure will be on a lake where we know we can catch fish.

I want to thank everyone for all the calls and birthday wishes on Facebook. Jim-Bob gave me a call. How nice to think of me with the battles going on in his life. It was a special call. Thank you.

Bob was also celebrating his birthday and I got him a box of bandaids and a first-aid kit for his snowmobile. He knows why. Linda "baked" a cake and I got to blow out all the candles - I hope my wish comes true...

See Ya Bye
