Drinking and fishing?
March 9, 2009 8:51am CST
In the 60's and 70's when is was too young to know better whenever I was in the Adirondacks in winter we would go icefishing which usually led to getting drunk while waiting for tip ups to pop being drunk we would sometime mistake someone else's tip up for our own which lead to a stern talking to.. I never was as bad as the guy below: "One day, a rather inebriated ice fisherman drilled a hole in the ice and peered deeply into the hole examining it for fish. Suddenly, a loud voice boomed, "There are no fish down there." Surprised, but not discouraged, the fisherman continued on. He walked several yards away, drilled another hole and peered deeply into it. Again, out of nowhere, a voice suddenly boomed, "There's no fish down there." A bit nervous now, the fisherman managed to continue. He walked about 50 yards away and drilled yet another hole, peered long and deep into the hole, hoping for some fish. Suddenly, the voice boomed again, this time louder than ever, "There's no fish down there!!!" The fisherman, quite frightened at this point, looked up into the sky and asked, "God!? Is that you?" "No, you idiot," the voice said. "It's the rink manager." " unqoute My question is do you drink when you go fishing? xoxooxxo

Good morning, raydene....Thank you for the good laugh, on a bleak morning where we could be ice-fishing! Cold, miserable, snowing here...and it's unheard of in March! Haven't been ice-fishing for many years, and was too young at the time, but I do re-call my Father with a thermos of hot toddys! And us with one of hot chocolate....thanks for re-calling some very pleasant memories! Cheers!

Thank you so kindly, for the best response, my dear! It truly brightened my day, and it is a bleak one...when I went to work this morning @5:30 a.m., it looked like it might be a brighter day...what I didn't count on was that it would be bright white...SNOW! SNOW! And more snow~~~unheard of here in mid-March! So, you see, you really did brighten my day! Thank you!
