Fish in a Barrel Pond, March 23, 2012, 6:30 a.m.:
An early riser:
You had ice?
It was only a foot and a half thick, and was only around for a few months; hardly noticed it at all!
We have mosquitoes already.
A lot of guys whining about ticks.
I’ve never seen a tick in Illinois, lots of garlic and cheap cigars make a decent repellant.
Hopefully your guests won’t show up early to take advantage of this.
I got bit last evening, watching the ice.
Our mosquitoes have ticks.
Cigars and garlic repel all sorts of things!
I have a video uploading, of my drive back up the hill this morning. I don’t think many of them will make it very far. Not for a while, anyway.
And I was hoping for a repeat of the ice breaking fleet.
She might ice back over tonight, so you never know!
Ice out seems magical. I was up at the house in New Hampshire during late winter a few years ago. In the course of a few hours one morning a small hole in the ice in our cove transformed itself into a hundred yards of open water.
The changes, from minute to minute, are subtle but it’s amazing how they add up. Got a cold wind whipping things to a crusty froth today, though.
you should hurry to throw them early risers a fly, before the toilet seats and paper rolls madness begins.
So very, very tempting …
oh that’s not temptation, it’s common sense.
Go fling a line!
