Saturday Morning = Fishing Shows

Somebody in Saskatchewan won 17 million dollars in the lottery on Friday. I hope it was somebody that deserves it and is a generous person. Just to let my kids know, it was not me and I don't think it was your father either. You have to have a ticket to win. We have been too sick to venture out to do things like buy lottery tickets, not that we ever bother to buy very many of them. We have been living the life of hermits. John has had a rough go of it but I think he is now starting to see the light.

John is running around in his underwear this morning and seems quite perky. It is Saturday morning and that means fishing shows. He loves fishing shows. He is laughing because Gary Cooper caught a great big Sturgeon that he had to drag to shore and the fish dragged him onto his face.

I am feeling much better this morning. That horrible ache between my shoulders has eased up. It doesn't hurt to breath this morning. I am sure that the painful breathing was related to my backache. I don't have any more excuses for not doing the housework. That, my friends, is a good thing.

I have a question. Is doesn't a legitimate word? My spell checker does not think that it is. I use it all the time. Am I wrong? People who know me, know that I am a terrible speller. I am very grateful for my spell checker. My husband tells people that I am so deficient at spelling that I don't even know how to spell my name. He is lying. I do know how to spell my name. Well, what do you expect from a man who runs around in his underwear and will watch fishing shows all morning? Sorry for the visual picture people. I think it is funny.

Now I have to watch some guy fillet fish. He is very fast. This makes John very happy. Hang on a second. Well, he was impressive. Now, John is simultaneous browsing fishing sites on line while watching TV. He is looking for something that would make a great fishing trip, like fishing for Sturgeon on the Fraser River. Three people for eight hours of fishing pay 200 dollars each. Oh the gears are turning! All tackle and bait supplied. They bring a camera to get all the pictures. The average sturgeon is five feet long and weighs ???? I missed that.

I am going to go now. This is not very productive. John is tossing fishing thoughts and ideas at me so fast, I can't think for myself. Oh, if you have not heard enough about this man and his fish, you might be amused with this post. For myself, I think I have heard enough fish trivia for today. Exit stage left. He won't see me for the smoke.

I totally get the visual of John running around in his underwear and laughing at fishing shows. He definitely must be feeling better!

Lol at the visual you "painted" here! That previous post was hilarious too!

Jientje said...

Have to run to the kitchen to prepare my fish for supper, if I don't want to end up like you!

Sue said...

Oh Chris, you are so funny! You did give us some visual pictures there!! HA HA HA

I had to put up with fishing and hunting shows this morning too. I decided that my time would be better spent doing my dishes and making a couple of baby blankets. It really is amazing what you can all get done instead of watching fishing shows. I wonder if two people could install a central Vac system during that time? I sure would love to try.
Oh well I guess I won't steal his relaxation time.
I hope you guys feel better soon. We would love to have you over for coffee. In or OUT of the hot tub. Your choice. I'll even bake something if time allows

Susan: that sounds good. I think that we will be rejoining the living very soon.

Glad to 'hear' all is well in your household and things are getting back to normal. From what I understand, John running around in his underwear is normal!

Trav said...

$200 isn't bad at all... let him know if he want's someone to come with him, i'm all aboard!

also, he should get WFN... it's awesome... you'd hate it... it's the world fishing network... all fishing, all day, everyday

Christine said...

Naw, he doesn't normally run around in his underwear. This is rare.

Margaret said...

I laughed when I read this. you are very good at painting a mental image. So funny. HA HA. I'm glad you are both feeling better.

Becky said...

I'm assuming Mike and Ang weren't home and you knew they wouldn't be walking in the door at any moment?

Doesn't is the contraction for does not. A perfectly legitimate word. Your spell checker must be on drugs.

Becky said...

(Please tell me he wasn't still running around in his underwear when I called him about the air compressor this morning.)

As unsettling as the thought of Uncle John running around in his underwear might be, I'm glad he is feeling well enough to do it!!

Momisodes said...

LOL! Yup, visuals here too :)
Glad he's feeling better enough to be thinking about fishing!

I have the same issue with "doesn't."

Some places don't place the squiggly line below it, and others do. It's one of the great mysteries for me as well :)

diana said...

i think doesn't is a legit word. i use it all the time, too.

my saturday mornings are filled with home improvement shows. my poor husband wouldn't be able to watch fishing even if he wanted to =)

I am so glad my husband thinks fish comes from the market.
