    I caught you a nice bass

    today, but couldn't get a good picture of it.
    It's not that easy to get a cellphone pic while holding a fly rod and a 2lbs or so bass......it's just not.

    I find that 8lb test air line works best to catch air bass.

    Pop had a patient who needed crown work but didn't have the money to pay so he looked for a trade.
    "Doc, I need my tooth fixed, how about a bucket of live baby alligators?"
    Knowing my pop I'd be surprised if 6 whole micro-seconds passed before he said, oh hell yes, that'll work.

    Now my mother designed the house where I was born. She's a big fan of mid-century modern. Their entry hallway is all stone and glass and has an indoor waterfall that spills into a pool about 8-10 foot across at its base. The perfect place to brood up a batch of alligators. Every day after school Pop would pick me up, we'd go to the bait shop and buy a bag of crickets and some minnows, and we'd go home and feed the alligators. Six sets of eyes would appear on the surface of the water and then they would rush about chasing minnows and crickets.

    As a child it was a more magical time for me than when I received my first Benjamin air *****. A box of six puppies would have been pale in comparison. I took one to show-and-tell. I was a hero that day.

    Mother, bless her heart, put up with this for almost a whole week. Until she found an alligator in her kitchen.
    "Kenneth, the alligators can stay or you can, not both." I would have happily have helped Pop set up a room in the barn, but he convinced me they would be better off if we let them loose in the pond. So for that summer we had a half a dozen alligators lounging about and our pond became a local legend. Half of them survived the winter and the next year they were as large as the cat. The year after that we never saw them again but would hear rumors about them down stream for years.

    This was not my father's first experience owning gators by the way. As a child growing up in the South Georgia swamps during the Depression, Pop kept a 5 foot alligator in the drainage ditch in his back yard. He would charge the neighborhood kids a penny to see it and a nickel to feed Jim (the alligator) a chicken.

    My grandmother said that in the end Jim was a better man than my grandfather because Jim always went with her to church. She was very fond of that pocketbook.

    Allen, you should write short stories for a living. I would buy one of your books for sure. That was beautiful. I could picture your dad in slacks and a button down shirt and you in jeans and a t shirt on your knees in the enty hallway feeing crickets to the alligators. It was like I was a fly on the wall. Thank you.

    Excellent titles all. Evocative of the works of one Samuel Langhorne Clemens.

    Indeed. Truth be told, I pictured your pater familias in said suit and requisite straw hat, feeding the aforementioned alligators. You were shirtless and shoeless in overalls, with a frog in one front pocket and a slingshot in the other.

    So the hat would be hung on the hat tree in the entry? Got it.
