Day 7:Today was ‘free fishing day’ in Wisconsin. Some of the neighbors had a boat and took us out on the lake. We caught about 50 fish in an hour … not bad There was free food and prizes for the children put on by a local fishing club. Alex got a new fishing pole (which was a good thing, since we were short one pole after Gwyn threw hers into the lake). Ellie got a tackle box, and Gwyneth got a life jacket. While on the boat, I got the chance to tell the one fishing joke I know. I told our hosts with the boat about how I had gone fishing with a one-armed fisherman. He had caught a fish “this big” (holding up his one arm). Oh, and as a redneck aside: We are enjoying sleeping on the front porch of Luann’s parent’s house.
As always, be sure to check the photo gallery for updates.
