Easy Street fishing trip to Woodfield Pond
The guy with the Zebco nabbed the biggest--a fat Punkinseed. The short guy with the long bamboo pole (fifty years old, never needs oiling or a tune-up) got seven of the nine total.
Still in the pond at 7:00 am. In the frying pan by 9:00 am. All in all, a very satisfying day.

- Of the biblical allotment of three score and ten I have lived only three of them more than a bicycle ride from one of the Great Lakes. I grew up ten blocks from Lake Erie in the (once Irish/Italian ghetto, now newly-hip) "Near West Side" of Cleveland. I can still cycle to the Milwaukee lakefront in an hour and a half; but, a round-trip has always been more than I would (noror ever did) attempt. -0- I'm a "...somewhat combative pacifist and fairly cooperative anarchist," after the example of Grace Paley (1922-2007). -0- I'm always cheerful when I pay my taxes (having refused--when necessary--to pay that portion of them dedicated to war). -0- And I always, always vote.
