A long weekend of sun and fun was just what I needed! Friday afternoon was finally warm enough for me to be out on the ice to do a little fishing! I had gone to lake 3 other previous times to ice fish but it was way tooooo cold for me so indoors I ran. Not this time I was out on the ice in the sometime on and off again rain, fishing my lil heart out! I caught and released about 20 fish in lil more than 1 hour! I was a happy girl! For those fishermen/women out there that want to know what kind it was mostly bluegills and 1 bass....only snagged my line once and my BIL came to my rescue! lol
Saturday was my cousins 40th B-day, she had no idea when I kidnapped her that morning for breakfast, then on to the Crown Victoria (gambling boat) then a stop at Applebees because we still had an hour to kill before I was to bring her back home to her surprise party thrown by her DH. We were pretty much on schedule until she ordered another round of Appletini's.(ended up being 45 minutes late to her own party! lol)......yikes! We were getting a little smashed...so much so we had to call an Uncle of ours who lives down the street from where we were to drive us back to her house! lol She was totally surprised when she walked into a house full of friends and family and we all had a ball! Long day for me so by 9:30 p.m. I was hurting (lingering bone pain) so Jim went to get my truck, then picked me up and home and bed I went.
Sunday was even more beautiful and warm out so it officially ended the ice fishing season and started the BBQ'N season out at the lake. Some of the guys took off into the woods to take down their tree stands and one of the guys catapulted about 20 feet down and another 20 feet out away from the tree, damn stubborn man couldn't walk, it was obvious he broke something in his foot and his back was hurting so bad he was writhing in pain....didn't want to lay there, tried to get up, my BIL had to actually lay over him to keep him still.
He wouldn't let anyone call an ambulance..so we said fine MF'R we are throwing you into the back of the Kim's truck and off we went to the ER. He broke is right heel and a lumbar 2 compression fracture in his back. He and we are so lucky that it wasn't worse than that. I know we should have called the ambulance and next time we will no matter what he says, he could of ended up in a wheel chair. He's still at the hospital for an MRI and CT Scan to see which is the best way to put him back together again. My GF, his wife was a nervous wreck, she wasn't at the lake when it happened, but met me and another one of our GF's at the ER. Me and the other GF left only after he was morphined up (twice) and we had a chance to speak to his DR. Then we went back to the lake to bring everybody else up to speed on his diagnosis and treatments. I'll find out more a lil later today.
Who knew that a beautiful weekend would end up like that....Stubborn man still thought he was going to work today!!! NOT!!!!!
