Saturday, January 18, 1975
most of this morning I have been watching tv. robert just came over and we are going to play ping pong.

when robert was here we played with the fish pond. there was three inch ice and we drilled a whole lot of holes with the drill. I stuck the siphon tube down one and blew some air under the ice and it came up under the drilled holes like volcanic springs. we finally chopped about a seven inch square out of the ice. we wanted to get a fish on top of the ice, so we waited until a small fish was below the hole and we stepped on the ice and the suction pulled up the fish but robbie stepped a little too hard and was standing on the bottom of the pool. the fish got back under through a crack in the ice.
