Yes, Christmas was yesterday and for all the year round residents on Big Bass Lake multiple gifts were presented. Some of those could be used directly on the frozen lake. Things such as snowmobiles, ice skates, sleds or toboggans, and even fishing apparatus. Maybe even a shovel to remove some snow for ice skating purposes? Or some form of drill to bore through the ice for that ice fishing you covet?
Perhaps a few parka’s were in order or even some long underwear to help ward off those cold temperatures outside?
As for me and my cottage, I would have hoped there might have been some firestarters for that wood for my fireplace so that I could snuggle up to a warm fire and watch after Christmas movies. Ah, now wouldn’t that be a “Wonderful Life“?
