Deadliest Catch: Kansas

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  As many of you know, I really enjoy watching TV.  I like the Vikings show on History Channel, British detective shows, and some other action thriller type things.   I also enjoy watching Deadliest Catch from time to time.

"Reel it on in, Edgar!"

It's very exciting to see them hauling in the crab pots.

"The Cape Caution might be heading into bad weather!"

The weather conditions on the Bering Sea can get mighty fearsome!

That's pretty cool that they do a show following these guys on their boats. They could do one on my mom and dad and their boat, too! Oooh... wouldn't that be something! I can just picture it ...

"Look!  There goes my dad, captain of the Chaika!  Watch out for those Cormorants, Dad!"

Talk about wild conditions!

Looks like he gave them the slip:


Close call!  Let's see what Mom had to deal with  that day  on that episode!

"Look out, Mom!  There's a vulture overhead!!!"

Check out 12 o'clock high!


I don't like the way he was looking at Mom! She and Dad should stick together! Fortunately, the kayak converts to hold them both, like so:


Safety in numbers!

In the latest episode, Mom got gutsy and took the older, it's OK if it sinks to the bottom of the River Pond if they tip over camera   Nikon out in the Chaika. Either she really needs to improve her skills of focusing from the front of a moving kayak/can't see the camera screen with sunglasses on or they had adventures too wild for our G-rated blog, but whatever the case, this was the best shot she offered up:


Hmm. Nice feety-feet, Mom!

Anyway, I think this would make a cool action-adventure show - don't you?  Be sure to stay tuned for the next episode!

The End

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

PS: Mom did photograph some really cool birdies on a recent outing, to include a very rare-to-Kansas Brown Pelican, Wilson's Phalaropes, a Spotted Sandpiper, Willets, and a Bald Eagle and her baby. If you'd like to see them, please click here.


  1. OURS DAD loves those shows also, and sometimes him and mom fight over whose turn it is to watch which show...our mom always gives in and reads instead. Your parents are brave to go out in the water, our mom is afreared of the water.

  3. Now what WE think is that it would be SUPER fur your mom and dad to that YOU out in the kayak.. THAT would be a BLAST.

    OURS dad watches that stuffs too.

  4. Hey Mt we think you should watch re runs of Yes Minister we are so sure it would be right up your Downing street. I only watch animal rescue programs. Happy kayaking to mum and dad. Have a marvellous Monday.
