Thank you Mira - you and Billy were by my side - helping me to cross the styles :))

I did too much gardening yesterday, and my back is ... well ... like a Grandma's! I am just going to lie in front of our lovely fire now and watch a movie :)))

Great frosted picture Amelia.

I think that you are plumbing the depths here and skating on very thin ice ~ but your title has me hooked and the long shadows are great ~ :))

Amelia Royan on January 5, 2010

Well Ian, it is evident that you have some knowledge of ice fishing ... a very popular "sport" in Norway :)))

This ice wouldn't need an auger to get through it though, probably it was only about 2 inches thick at the most :))

Good evening Nico, we have some very cold weather here, but this frozen fishing lake has only got a slight dusting of snow on it. I liked the long shadows coming across from the right of the photo :)))

Greetings to Groningen, Amelia

Hail to thee dear Nick - I believe, hook line and sinker, that you must be one of the best punners on Pano, s'no joke! As for plumbing the depths, our outside tap is frozen, and our local has closed, so the tap's frozen there too! The snow has moved south to Shropshire, but we only have 5 cm. Hampshire is in the battle-zone once more I gather :))

Dear Billy, the style in which you and Mira helped me across the stiles was just great - I couldn't have got here without your help. So the 3 of us must have struggled, and I cannot spell :)))

To be sure, our Nick hasn't used all his puns in one sentence - but he is a bit quiet of late :))))

Just been outside for my beloved one, taking pictures of the house in the snow (Mad or what?) It is very sticky snow here, all the trees are covered and the telegraph lines, bet some will be falling down before long!! One of lorries is due to go to Southampton in the morning ~ could be interesting!!! Thanks for your lovely compliments and for once I'm lost for words!!! I'm glad you have some snow to play with at last and I hope your back feels a little better too ~ Ciao frozen nick

And rightly so ... how dare you even think of curling up in front of the warm fire when there's a good snow photo to be had :)))

I bet you didn't need much persuading ;-)

A deep hot bath in Radox worked wonders for my back, plus I heated up one of these grain packs in the microwave, and went to bed with it :))) Adrian didn't seem to mind too much ;-)

Love the title it works with or without the hyphen!

Amelia, No fishing???

You just have to drill a hole and can start to fish no problem at all. We do it all the time in Canada. Of course the skaters have to look out!

The picture, it is lovely!

Greetings from Canada, Gabe

Hi Amelia This fishing lake just looks like a large lawn covered with snow better keep away from thin ice Greetings for the New year Alan

Better put on those ice skates. For tonight some pretty cold weather is predicted (-15) for the Netherlands.

I saw you where taking good care of yourself with a hot bath and microwave heated grain packs. A bit of hibernation is good for all of us.

Lots of warm wishes from the stone cold Netherlands, Erik

Hi Bonnie wee Lassie!!

I am feeling quite well now thanks, probably due to the antibiotics I get Intravenously!

But the main reason I am chipper again is all the comments and good vibes from my Pano. buddies (you know who you are)

Gotta go now, lunch is due...Roast beef & yorkshires, tatties and twa veg!

Take care my dear freind

Amelia I found a sale you might be interested in I know you were looking for this stuff earlier and he is having an after Christmas sale. :))

Amelia Royan on January 11, 2010

zmogelis, thank you for you visit, I am delighted to read your comment :))

Molte grazie Sile. Credo che la natura stava aspettando la neve :))

Hi Margot, glad you like the title! The ice wasn't that thick - I wouldn't have walked on it :))) Is it our Nick who is selling the white stuff? We've got a few tons in Norway - luckily our good neighbours got a tractor in to clear our driveway before we arrived to our second home :))

Good morning Gabe, I somehow think that the quality and amount of fish in this angling pool would not make that sort of effort worthwhile. But yes, In Norway it is fairly common practice, and I have seen it happening in the mountain areas :)))

Warm greetings, Amelia
