Hey Kids, ( Even if some of you are nearing AARP eligibility, you’ll always be ‘kids’ to us … )
Mom and I went over to the office at “Fish ‘N Fry” RV park where we’re staying yesterday, they have a nice little restaurant, with a bar and gift shop. Mom says this is the nicest RV park we’ve ever stayed at, and I have to agree.
Anyway, on the menu board, along with the usual cheeseburgers and like, was a “fish dinner”. The owner was standing there, along with the lady who does the cooking, and Mom said “Oh, I want that fish dinner, what kind of fish is it?” “Trout”, the owner said, “and you have to catch it”. Mom got a funny look on her face and mumbled “I hate to kill anything…”, forgetting about that last all you can eat shrimp dinner we had, when how many innocent shrimp gave their all for this woman.
So, we all walked outside to the fishing dock about 50 feet away, our host pulled out a kid-sized fishing rod, but a little bait on the end and cast it out into the pond they have, diverted from the trout stream, and handed the rod to Mom.
The red and white bobber started to bob, and then bang, Mom had a fish on. “Reel it in, reel it in”, the owner said, and there was Mom reeling away, trying to get that fighting fish to the dock, where the net was ready. It was a nice rainbow trout, about 12 inches long.
As they examined the fish, Mom got this sad look and said, “Oh, I hate to kill anything”, ( I hope that included husbands) and turned down an offer to watch the fish being cleaned.
A few minutes later, the cook brought out the fish, along with the potatoes and cold slaw, and an extra plate for me, there was plenty for the both of us.
“This is delicious”, said the killer. And, it was.
