This one is for you Dave!

Your fishin buddies went back to one of favorite fishin spots without you.
It was 55 below zero outside the ice shack.
They scored about 20 salmon. Had three trucks that would not start. Ate great food including: moose meat, chop suey, and breakfast in the ice shack.
Played and cheated at poker while solving all the world's problems.

Sleds are required.
The camp has had many improvements in the past couple years.

Keeping the home fires burning. remote control.
Matt's wounded shoulder gets better every day and caused no damage to his Marine Corp tatoo.

Annie's bed got washed today. She paced the whole time it was in the washer and dryer. She hates it when her world is disrupted, but loves a fresh clean bed.

Post op!

Matt's surgery is over! Yippee!! He has this wonder tube that sends pain medication directly to his wounded paw.
Nurse: "I've never had anyone take a picture pre-op before."
Me: "and you probably never will again."

One more of my favorite things...

The calendar my friend Carol gave me called: "The Daily Bitch."
So far it reads:
January 1, "Live fast. Die Young. Leave Bills"
January 2, "It's not whether you win or lose, but how you do your hair"
January 3, "Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups"

Thanks Carol!
