Fishing and Fingers
Today Uyaana and I went hooking for tomcods. We had to go to the store first so I could buy those spikey things that you put on your boots. Last thing I needed was to slip on the ice and mess my knee up some more.
There were quite a few people here and there on the lagoon behind town. When I first got out there the tomcods were biting pretty good.
I caught 12 and then it slowed down.
I decided to move to another spot on the other side of first bridge.
There were more people fishing over there.
The fishing wasn't much better over there but there were other kids for Uyaana to play with so he was happy. Then I decided to go home and cook dinner. I left Uyaana with a friend of mine because he wanted to keep playing with the kids. He came home about an hour and a half later and he was crying like crazy. He and one of his friends were taking loose pieces of ice and hammering them with big rocks. He accidentally smashed his finger with the rock. His whole pinkie finger was purple and swollen. I really thought he broke it so I packed him off to the clinic to get it xrayed.
Lucky for him it wasn't broken but it is still really swollen and tender. He has this lovely splint on his finger now.
He wanted a picture taken of it from both sides.
