Ice Fishing

This is too good not to pass on.

There was a young lady that wanted to go ice fishing, but her husband would never take her.  So she decided she would do it by herself.  She prepared by reading books and articles on the subject until she felt she was ready.  Waiting until her husband was out of town, she gathered up his ice auger, trap, tip up, and stool and headed for the ice.

After selecting a spot, she cranked up the auger and began to cut a hole in the ice.  Suddenly from above a voice said “THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE”.

Startled but undeterred, she picked up the equipment and moved to another location.  After pouring a cup of cappuccino from her thermos, she again set about drilling a hole, and again a voice, this time louder said “THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE”.

Becoming a little annoyed she picked up all her gear and moved all the way down to the opposite end and again set about making a hole, and again the voice said “THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE”.

Now she was really upset.  It seemed that she was the object of some divine intervention.  Looking heavenward she cried out “IS THAT YOU LORD?”


About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.

    I did actually Bob, it was an oldie but a goodie. Do you know the best way to catch polar bears? You cut a big hole in the ice, put frozen peas on the edge and when they come down for a pea you kick them in the icehole.
