Fishing the dream up Highway 24

  • Mar. 14, 2011 1:00 p.m.

I crawled out of my bed this morning with but one thing on my frazzled mind – I was going fishing in one of my favourite lakes up along Highway 24.

Then I looked out the window and saw the results of last night’s snowfall and all of a sudden I scaled my so-called fishing trip down to dream level.  I dreamed we were driving up the hill in our old truck with all our fishing gear safely stowed in the old boat and rattling up and down as usual; and our big old dog safely ensconced likewise dreaming of all the fried fish she could eat, when our old truck got a flat – as is usual.  Naturally, I couldn’t muddy myself up to fix it, so when all the dirty work was done by a cussing (which is also usual) husband, we reached the lake.  The fish were biting, the sun was shining.  It was about the time to wake up!

Monday night Whist had four tables in play and Monica Ireland got a score of 214, while Gloria Gartner came in second with 213.

Thursday, March 3, Barriere and District Senior’s Society celebrated our 22nd Anniversary as a society with a potluck supper and birthday cake, with a good time had by all.
