Did a little shopping for Julie today

My sister Julie’s birthday is coming up so I thought I’d do a little birthday shopping for her today.

First, we got our fishing licenses for 2013 with the hopes our lake is going to eventually thaw.


We got some worms too. Notice that they aren’t for human consumption. Good to know.


Then I went in search for the perfect present. Here are a couple things I spotted:





Nothing really jumped out at me though. Maybe I’m shopping in the wrong stores.

Then we drove the back roads for a few hours. Most of the lakes are still frozen.

This was neat. It was in the middle of nowhere off a back road. The water was going in the hatch and coming out the culvert below.

All the back roads are a mess. Muddy, full of pot holes, and all the culverts are poking through.

We found a pond that was open and I think all the mallard ducks found it too!

Lots of robins around today!

  1. Julie called. She’s not keen on the boots or the Chicken Haddie but it’s two thumbs up on the chainsaw and the eels.

  2. I had to look it up. Chicken Haddie is a term used for canned haddock, cod, cusk or hake. A lot of people used to have is creamed on toast for breakfast.
