Answer to What Was In The Box

If you read my previous post ” What’s In The Box”  you might be curious to know the answer.
First a little background. My wonderful husband is an avid fisherman. He’s what I affectionately call a” blade of grass fisherman” ( I should probably trademark that term). He will get himself into all kinds of positions, balance on one foot on the top of a rock, climb down the rocky side of a cliff, stand on a blade of grass outstretched over the river,etc. all to get to the perfect fishing hole. Fishing does not slow down for my husband when the temperature drops below zero, that’s actually just another opportunity to go fishing. He will drive to the frozen lake in a blizzard, drag his gear to the perfect spot, drill a hole and he is a happy fella. This year to make it easier to haul all of his gear I bought him ,drum roll please,………. An ice fishing sled!  Taa Daaa, that’s right I packed it in a big box wrapped with gold paper and tied with a bow. He was so thrilled with his surprise. Sorry no photos of him allowed, he reused to let me post the photos of him in his Christmas morning attire and with his wild and woolly hair, giggle.

I loved your guesses and the emails you sent. Thank you for always participating in my blog, it really does make me smile.

I hope you all received something special and maybe a surprise or two under your tree this year.

  11. Gee, my husband is a lot like that too!! He is alergic to cold weather fishing though but is already waiting for spring! He received fishing things for Christmas too and was a happy guy as he sat playing with his new toys! Ha!

    You did such a great job with the wrapping…definitely had me fooled. Never would have guessed that one! I'm sure he is one happy fisherman! But what about you?
    What did you get?

  13. Perfect gift for a committed fisherman and yes…you should trademark that phrase.
