Barb was here today to help me get packed and organized. She brought pictures from this past weekend when she went icefishing with her boyfriend in Elliot Lake. I got a chuckle out of some of these; hopefully you will too...

They start out early - sunrise at Elliot Lake:

Barb doesn't like the cold so muffled up well!

Fishing was good:

She brought some for Randy today (I'm not keen on fish but Randy is.)

Her boyfriend is building a house up there and has been feeding a bird regularly. It is now tame enough to sit on their hands. They don't know what kind it is and I'm not good on bird ID so I've asked a birder friend to ID it - do any of you recognize it?

Neat photos Woody, and probably a nice diversion. I bet it was cold before the sun came up. I'm with Randy on enjoying fish. Thinking of you tomorrow as you head towards all that awaits.

Cool, very cool, lol, pics. Looks like it was worth their while and they came away with some a big catch.

Thoughts going out to you Woody. Keep us posted as to your progress.

I think a Canada Jay (Gray Jay) as they are quite friendly and the right size: 11"-13".

Although I do love fish, I'm not sure I could bundle up enough for ice fishing at dawn! Wonderful pics. Glad she was there to help you pack and to make you laugh! THAT is a friend.

Wonderful pics, Woody! My hubby is a huge fan of ice fishing, but I haven't gotten brave enough to attempt it. I don't recognize the fish-what are they?
Many, many good thoughts heading your way.

She sure is bundled up. I'm not big on winter "sports" but the fish sure do look good.

My thoughts are with you in the coming days and weeks.

I think Barb is brave! It looks very cold. I would like the fresh fish, though.

Thinking of you from this little corner of the world, too, Woody.
