Last Friday, Jerry Carlson and I went to the St. Paul Ice Show to look up some old friends and drool over the newest ice fishing gear.   Jason Mitchell told me the story of the first time he fell through the ice while duck hunting, and Dave Genz ran through the "must haves" for every ice angler before he/she hits the hardwater.  Be listening for those conversations to hit the air soon.

'Tis the season of giving and we have some great Christmas gifts for you -- or -- if you'd like,  RE-GIFT 'em:

-- Thanks to McDonald's Meats, we have 15 - $35.00 gift cards,
-- There is great music from Mannheim Steamroller,
-- Christmas books from Tom Hegg and others at Tristan Publishing.

Tomorrow brings another Two Cent Tuesday, so be ready to call up and toss in your two cents on whatever you like!
