Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula has been home for more than 40 years. My husband, David, and I live on 10 acres of forest near the town of Soldotna. We are more or less retired, meaning we are retired from gainful employment but not from life!
Our son lives in Australia and our daughter in Colorado.
Photography, fiber arts, reading, and hiking/walking are some of my interests, and David shares my love of gardening, camping, cooking, and traveling, plus he is our tech expert.

Thanks for playing this week. Great photo.
Thanks. I’m glad the fish removal didn’t apply to me!
Yikes! That’s kind of terrifying that the sign needs to be that big…. but I guess it’s a common injury for fishermen.

Congratulations! I have chosen your post to be featured on Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge.
I sure you have a terrific week. 😀
Thanks so much Cee, I appreciate you choosing my photo, and I hope it brought some smiles!
Great shot and ouch that would hurt.
Thanks. In our local hospital for many years there was a styrofoam “dummy” in the hallway, and during fishing season nurses hung hooks on the appropriate body part from which it had been removed. Of course this provided many laughs and imaginary ouches! Then someone had to be offended, and the dummy was taken away. No sense of humor!
How sad that someone has no sense of humor and the dummy was removed. I would think all of that laughter would be good for moral.
That’s just funny! I had to find an emergency veterinarian once because my weenie dog got triple hooked- he was constantly getting into anything that seemed like it might have food in/on it!
Yikes! I wonder if he was a little more careful after that!
We were more careful after that! Weenie dogs just can’t help themselves when it comes to something that might be edible!
Gee, that’s not a good sign! — Pun intended! 😀

Whaaat? It is that much of a problem that they had to set up a dedicated sign for it? That is kind of funny:)
Sadly, it is quite common for fishermen/women to catch themselves or their neighboring fisher person!
Apparently, there is a need for this. 🙂 Great finding.
We have a friend who had to use the service. He was removing a hook that was far down in the fish, and it suddenly released and became lodged in the area of his hand between thumb and first finger. He was not able to get it out, so went to this place, where the doctor had a special tool for removing the barbed hook. It took only a couple of minutes and cost almost $600.
