The Crazy Things We Do

Bob's Mom with the augur

I answered a call for help a few weeks ago.

A friend's Mom was coming to town and she wanted to try ice fishing. She loves to fish and has never done this, she lives down south and now she's in Minnesota in February, so this was her chance.

I dusted off the gear, gassed up the Jiffy and met them for an afternoon of piscatorial pursuit on the lake some know as Nokomis. The fishing absolutely sucked; we just narrowly avoided getting skunked, but it was 36 degrees and so sunny that I got a little toasted out there.

The best part was that I think Mom had fun and I was able to help make this happen.
