Can You Believe It???
(First posted 12/08/06)
I'm home alone again on a Friday night. Only THAT'S not the unbelievable part, the unbelievable part is WHY - - - - - - - -
I'm home alone because Sven and Ole, our two wannabe Norwegians, went NORTH two and a half hours on a two day FISHING spree. It was a whopping 9 degrees this morning, and then we had a HEAT wave and it hit 23 by late afternoon. I'm sure they are just sweating and sweating up on that lake in that boat. Oh wait, could they even GET the boat INTO the lake, or do you suppose they're using the boat as a snowmobile and gliding around on top of the ice??????
I don't know for sure cause they aren't answering their cell phones. I'm thinking their hands are probably FROZEN to their poles making them incapable of either answering OR calling, but not affecting their ability to pull in those fish.
Well, I used to think that only traits like hemophilia and male pattern baldness were found on the 'missing' leg of the Y chromosome, but now I'm pretty sure BRAINS are there too.
They'll come home swearing it wasn't cold and that they had a blast. I'll know the truth. They are LYING that it wasn't cold and they had a blast alright - - - a blast of frigid arctic air.
As for me, I'm singing "Praise God from Whom all blessings flow" as I sit in my warm family room, under my fleece afghan, in front of my cozy fireplace, eating a spicy enchilada from Taco Bell and watching taped episodes of CSI Miami!!!!!
Later addendum for nonfishermen and their wives: The fish is a Muskie, which fishermen call "the fish of a thousand casts."
I guess they bite best in cold weather, at least that is when Sven and Ole have the most luck catching them.
The photo wasn't taken the same day that I wrote the story, but on the day it was taken Ole caught two just like the one pictured. That makes him "proud" as some fishermen have tried all their lives and have never caught even one.
