Anyone Wanna Go Ice Fishing?

It sounded like a good idea at the time. I accompanied Richard to the ice fishing derby in Alexandria on the weekend. He was covering it for his paper.

 There were tons of people there, all having a good time, competing for big prizes.

Richard spoke to a couple of fellows from Quebec who were waiting for their big catch.

 Some folks had more than one hole, waiting for a bite.

And somehow, I found a snow-covered hole and stepped right in, up to my thigh. Ick. Ice-water filled boot and freezing pants. And a bruise the size of a dinner plate above my knee. Maybe next winter I'll take up curling...less chance of falling in!

Poor you!!! They need to do something about that before some kid drowns...

most of those ice holes are just big enough for a smallish foot hard to imagine a whole kid falling in, never heard of someone stepping in though :)
