Now I admit I'm posting this picture twice in the document, but beginning on the next page, you will

see what Liz posted on her Flickr site followed by the comments it engendered from her friends. She took the picture with her remote button, placed it on Facebook and added the comment: “Lizzie literally in her element(s). SEE MOM, IT'S ONLY THIS DEEP. K?
She felt compelled to do this to assure her mother that she would be careful and not step in a hole and fill up with water, thereby being unable to escape her chest waders and drown. I am much relieved to see that she is wearing some type of cinch around the waders to discourage the water from rushing in. Hell being a mother at any age, I tell ya.

Crazy Girl

Went out to my usual haunt tonight and the sky was kind of cool but I mostly missed it. Pilings have lost most of their adornment because of a string of warm days, so everything is just kind of slush-colored. But I was out there, dammit. Might as well get a Me In My Element selfie. My dad has a shot of me out in the icewater from last March. I have a crazed grin on my face. It's his laptop screen background, and coworkers often ask who it is. When he tells them it's his daughter, they say, "What's wrong with her?"

11. Elizabeth Glass (4 hours ago | reply) Wow, thanks you guys! They're just regular fishing waders that I bought at the bait shop. Long johns, Smartwool stretchy winter exercise pants and two pairs of thick wool socks usually do the trick for as long as the rest of me can stand it.
