Just Fishin' Re-Entry for July 06

Uploaded: May 01, 2005 05:04:31


CJ and I went to a couple of State Parks today. We stopped at the entrance center to get a pass and CJ said she wanted to go fishing. Thinking about having to pull slimy fish off hooks and inevitably goring my fingers with those same hooks, I told her I didn’t have a license and I didn’t have a fishing pole. The ranger in the center however, was quite the little helper. He told us, “Thru August you don’t need a license in a state park and we have fishing poles right over there!” So, as you can see from this shot, I lost!
