Far Side wanted to show you a photo of some idiots.
They are North Dakota idiots ( their vehicle had North Dakota License Plates), I ran down the hill and barked at them. I ran out on the lake just a little..when Far Side shrieked for me to come back..I did.
Far Side wondered if they had spikes in their shirt pockets, just in case they fell through the ice. Her Uncle Andrew always carried them in his shirt pocket all winter..especially to the fish house. She would tell him to be careful on the ice..he would pat his pocket and say “I’ve got my spikes.” If you fall through the ice into the water, you can use the spikes to claw at the surface of the ice until you get a good enough grip on the ice to pull yourself out.
I sat and watched the fisherman while Far Side took this photo just before sunset. Nothing exciting happened..they didn’t fall in the lake..but I wasn’t allowed out on the ice to see how thick it was either.
It was 45 degrees F yesterday, and mostly sunny. More of the snow shrunk. Far Side said “I could take this kind of weather for the entire winter! If it stays nice for a few more days all the snow will be gone!” :)
