Evidence Puts Doubters To Rest

The red pole is an ice chisel, used for digging a hole in the ice.

No need for an ice house on such a nice day.

There are those who doubt my origins. For the record, I did, in fact, spend my early years in Minnesota.

The above pictures show me ice fishing on a sunny day in February of 1977, when I was 12-years-old.

My father, who is currently known as Undisclosed Grandpa, took me out on the ice, his blue van a family heirloom trademark. I can't remember if we caught anything, but I remember the lure we used. It had an excellent name, the Swedish Pimple.
