Yoo hoo Mr. Ice Fishermen!



Okay, some of you already know how I'm always waving from the deck of my log cabin to my non-acknowledging neighbors across the lake. About half the time it's in the morning when I'm wearing my crazy pajama pants and now combined with my big fluffy ski coat. Looks great, I promise! (HA!)

Anyways, the ice fishermen fascinate me. I'm always checking them out with the binoculars to see if they've caught any fish. Imagine my surprise when I was looking at them and saw one of them looking back at me with their binoculars! I waved. And you know what.....he waved too! I'm making progress people.....

That is so funny Shelley. I need to send you some of the big girl undies to go with your silly PJ's.
It was 60 here today and I wore my PJ's with my big coat to take the dogs out. I am a sissy!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Finally---they acknowledged you, Shelley... How long has it been????? ha

I think Patsy is right. He likes your PJ's... ha

Hope life is good.
Hugs,
Betsy

Yep, I think he likes those PJ's Shelley!

I wanted to stop by and tell you that we are in the process of buying 57 additional acres and we are getting a 3-acre lake on it. It's not as big as yours but I have dreams of taking a little boat or canoe out and watching/taking pics of the wildlife!

Busy Bee Suzy, I've got you beat, I wear my nightgown under my camo coveralls to run to the barn in the mornings and feed the goats and chickens LOL.

I'm having a big spring give away over on my blog if anyone wants to sign up for it.

Daisy said...

HA! I think he probably liked your pretty smile, Shelley. ;)

Glad to hear you are making progress. :D

Tami said...

Hi Shelley!

Glad your getting some acknowledgment. Love that photo...the red in the landscape is an unexpected treat!

Rural Rambler said...

Good job Shelley, I mean why not wave back right?

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

That's great, Shelley - They SHOULD wave back, it's rude when they don't!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

Lol! How fun!

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

Lol, maybe he found out that you have a blog and had posted about him not waving :-) I've never seen ice fishing in person (not a common sight here in California) but I find it fascinating too.
Blessings,
Marcia

Darla said...

I'm sure the fisher'man' did wave back. Wonder can he see in your cabin? tee hee....great progress!

Sharon said...

The word is out about the crazy ladie in the foxy jammies !!!! How is my baby Scout doing.

The Retired One said...

Too funny! The opposite of our shore is a bit away, but I often take out the binoculars too to see if anyone is out there....I am waiting for this to happen to us....
Which reminds me...our bedroom faces that side of the house...better start closing the curtains...ha

Just a little something from Judy said...

Once again your sense of humor added to my day. I could just picture it all happening. You probably made his day. He couldn't wait to tell those back home about the cute lady in the PJs watching him fish, with binoculars:)

Catherine Holman said...

Nothing like progress! How sweet!
Hugs,

dj said...

Have a great one.

Cedar ... said...

Don't you just love keeping watch? Way to go, gal!

grammy said...

How funny. Better make sure you are always sort of decent...never know who might be checking you out (o:

Cassie said...

Bwahahaha. You are a riot!! Bet that surprised you huh? Word has probably gotten out that this cute little chick hangs out on her deck with her jammies on.

I'd have apoplexy if someone saw me (at our cabin)running around on our deck in the morning while letting the dogs out.I've been known to just have a t-shirt and undies on!! (too much info?!) How is the poochie doing? I must send my dogs over to her blog. Have a good week Shelley. Blessings, C.

Constance said...

It had all the ingredients of one of those horror movies... you know when you look out your window only to see someone looking in! I get the creepies thinking of that! I always think of Grumpy Old Men when I see ice fishing shacks!

Maybe now your neighbors realize what they're missing!

Heather Ozee said...

Wow! That is so cool that your sharing your dream with us out in blogland.

John Poole said...

You need to get out there and fish with them! (Or at least just sip some coffee). I agree with Constance about Grumpy Old Men...seeing ice fishing shacks always reminds me of that very, very funny movie! ~John

cindyzlogic said...
