Hello from Ontario, Canada. I live approximately 1 hour NE of Toronto.

I retired from the City of Toronto in 2003, about 1 1/2 years after marrying for the 2nd time.

Hello from Ontario, Canada. I live approximately 1 hour NE of Toronto.

I'm a 71-year-old wife, mother and grandmother. Originally from Nova Scotia, I've lived in Ontario since 1978.

I retired from the City of Toronto in 2003, about 1 1/2 years after marrying for the 2nd time.

My husband and I enjoy gardening, travel, reading and spending time with our families.

I've been a yoyo dieter most of my adult life, but since I joined Spark People 4 years ago, I've learned how to balance my food and exercise and am down 20 lbs. Since I was gaining 5-10 lbs. every year before joining Spark, I figure that I'm really down at least 40 lbs. from where I would have been.

I will be following this program for the rest of my life... it works!

Good Morning Gail.........
I asked my husband about catching Mud Puppies and he knew immediately what you meant. He caught them in Lake Michigan. He said that they were really tough little buggers. He and his brothers would catch them while ice fishing and they would freeze solid. Then when they got home, they would put them in cool water in the bath-tub and they would be swimming in a matter of minutes!!! Now that's TOUGH!!!
Have a good Sunday..........
Patti

Hi Gail, how is the weather there. No snow here...most of it was in West Texas. I live in NE Texas. We have had some rain but not last 2 days. Sunny here in the upper 50's. Great weather for getting out. My back has kept me from walking far but I have gotten in 2 short walks and will get 1 more in this afternoon. Hope you and hubby are doing great. Hugs Pat

Hi Gail..........
To answer your question re: the fish my husband catches; it all depends on what they are going after. Certain areas of the lake are good for panfish (Bluegills, Perch, Crappies, etc.) other areas and depths are better for Northern Pike and Walleye, and the deepest fishing is done for Trout. Ken often sets out Tip-ups at various depths and goes for different types of fish to see what is biting best. I used to go with my Dad but lost interest quickly if the fish weren't biting and turned to skating instead.
