here are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace.

Friday Fishing Outing

Today the whole family went on a fishing outing on the "Rough Draft." Problem was, with the recent rains and my being away on travel, the battery had been depleted by running the auto bilge pump. So we weren't going far. Undaunted, we commenced fishing from our moored boat, rather resignedly and unenthusiastically at first. Soon, however, we were having a ball! The pictures tell the story. We caught 7 bass and 1 bullhead. The bullhead was especially important because it was Charlotte's first fish caught all on her own, from cast to landed.
