Oyster Tonging Friday

I can't think of anything funny so far for April Fools. This is not like me.

Another great shot, Mary! I like your images of these Oyster guys!

Eleven years ago, April 1st, was my first day working for Dr. Mahanti. They brought me in to meet the O.R. staff: Lourdes, Lorene, Laura, and Lauren! I thought for sure it was a joke! But no! And they all still work with us, except Lorene who moved to California to be a race car driver.
Mary MacADNski: I can imagine how much you though this was a joke. I am usually right on it (ask my siblings and kids) but not this year.

The only one worth catching has escaped!
Mary MacADNski: They have plenty of them. The ones they throw back will be big enough next year or the year after.
Nice to see these fishermen at work Mary. Great capture!
Thank you for reminding me that this is April Fools today.
Mary MacADNski: I like watching them too and quite often they are closely visible from a bridge or from shore.
What a life, Mary. I'm glad they're all wearing hats!
Mary MacADNski: That is a must with the sun and water exposure. Fishers and farmers have the most skin cancer here.

The person on top seems to have been accidentally decapitated
Mary MacADNski: I can see poor posture developing at a young age there - a tall boy.

LOl at Chris! A monster like Nessi is jumping up on the right.
Mary MacADNski: He is throwing a small oyster back. It will be big enough next year or perhaps the next.
That is a new expression for me Mary.
Mary MacADNski: You must be playing hooky on Fridays. I had an almost identical title and talked about it in the last few weeks.

I like to see men working hard, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: It is good for the body when in fresh air.

The trouble is where I work, we never know if some sort of management bulletin/dictat is true or a joke! We tend to treat them as the latter wink Spot on timing for the splash - a throw back?
Mary MacADNski: Did you hear about a mistake with google this morning? People all over the world were reprimanded and fired for not returning emails and the joke had disabled mail.

That must have been a very athletic oyster, to jump the man's hands.

My wife was born on 31st March. The next day, her siblings couldn't convince school friends that they had a new sister.
Mary MacADNski: Ha ha. That is funny about your wife's siblings. He is throwing a small oyster back for next year or an ugly old oyster for natural seed.
Nice to see the men busy at their work.
Mary MacADNski: The season is a timed season twice a year.

Maybe next year.... I do love your picture though. Great sun and shadow here.
Mary MacADNski: It is certainly not like me to have a fun joke, at least for work but, nothing, nil, nada.
With a title like this, Mary - it could be an April Fool's joke and we wouldn't know it! smile
Mary MacADNski: I had it in my title a few weeks ago so if you have a good memory...
I dunno, oyster tonging gave me a chuckle...
Mary MacADNski: I guess so but I had it in the title a couple of weeks ago.
