A Peachy Dory Ice Melt

This guy was having a peachy dory time last week despite the ice melting around him. You gotta love Wisconsin fishermen.
WARNING: I'll be using the term "peachy dory" as often as I can until it no longer amuses me.

Bet he's drinking a Pabst

    1. You're more of desert fisherman though, aren't you, Yogi?

    1. The way things are going you just might. It's barely snowed here and the first part of January saw temps in the high 40s/low 50s.

    1. This was one more unseasonably warm day and I'll take safety over sunshine any day.

  7. My hat off to anyone who would brave hours in the freezing cold, just for maybe a single fish!!
    You have a real knack Jeanna to find these once in a life time captures! Thank you blog Friend to keep us on our toes at All Seasons!

    1. It's so cold (how cold is it?) that every time I see people ice fishing I get a chill. I braved the inhumanely freezing cold armed only with my cousin, a hand auger and six pack of beer a few times and that was enough. It wasn't freezing cold when I took this pic, it was warm for winter and sunny, a beautiful day, really. We had a lot of those really nice days and now we're in for it so says the weather forecasters.

  8. That is one peachy dory time I do not ever want to experience! But that guy would probably hate peachy dory hot and humid Florida. Everything works out well that way!

    1. Oh c'mon, a hearty RVer like yerself, Sallie? It gets plenty hot and humid here and I know I don't have a peachy dory or hunky keen time in that kind of weather. It's the lunatics out there in 50˚ weather that slays me. Shouldn't be a problem in upcoming days though.

    1. I bet you do, I wonder what the dogs think when they see them. Lots of Swedes and Germans and Norwegians around these parts, Fi.

  10. Peachy dory is a cool phrase. Does it refer to a nice looking fish or a boat? I like your photo. I wonder if he's as happy as he looks.

    1. Ha, I didn't think of that, very good. I'm feeling more and more like Dory these days. I think a fisherman isn't truly happy unless he's fishing.

    1. He might have been chilled but not frozen. I'll see if I can find some frozen fishermen for you this weekend.

    1. Yeah, sometimes the stark snow works in my favor (usually not, though).

    1. I think it looks better in black and white too, Betty. Yeah, I suppose that's what those guys do, make the best of an often miserable winter. This is more of a real ice fishermen although he's got a power auger. A lot of them are in cozy shacks.
