In Answer To Jack's Fish Question

How did fish get into the stock tank? Remember the harebrained renter? The one who plowed up the pasture with his four wheel drive? The one who drove his pretty truck into the stock tank? The one who shot holes in the grain tank? The one who put the boat into the stock tank and its still there? The one who wanted to trap wild hogs so bad so John helped him drag the trap to an area where the hogs were coming in and taught him how and then he lost interest? This young man had told us he put some fish in the stock tank that his Dad had caught. We had never seen any sight of them jumping. Boy! were we surprised to see them and John tried to tell me they were bass. I don't know one fish from another but I do know a cat fish and these two little guys had those whiskers and a big mouth to suck that slime with. It rained today so was too wet to go feed them but I can't wait to see them again and the turtles and the cows.

Did that guy have a fondness for booze? Sounds like an addict of some sort.

Even we Nebraskans know catfish. If or I would say when we fished we never caught bass or anything but cat fish. And Oh yes, a huge turtle.
