Sunday afternoon Nora, Stuey and I went ice skating on Lake Gertrude in Abercrombie State Park. Doug D and Tanner joined us for a bit. We did the usual races, drag whip in the sled, and Nora and I would do our 'tea for two' dance. Tea for two is when I skate backwards and pull along Nora by holding her ski poles. The long poles sort of make it like a waltz or something. Then in unison we sing, 'tea for two .. ..' and go around the lake.
Anyway, as we were packing up to leave Eric M showed up with his ice auger and ice fishing equipment. Stuey and Nora were intrigued, and watched as Eric bored a hole in the ice. Stuey helped by scooping the ice shavings out of the auger hole. The ice was 2 feet thick!
Then Eric started fishing and I was thinking, 'oh no - this may take a while', and I sort of had a feeling that Stuey was not leaving until Eric caught a fish. Nora got bored and went up to the car. And then Eric caught a fish - a little landlocked silver salmon. Probably 2 or 3 years old, but they do not grow quickly in the lake. Eric gave Stuey the silver and we took it home for dinner. Stuey ate the whole fish.
I'm thinking rabbit hunting next weekend.
