So he starts on the bullheads, his appetite to whet, •;' (There's no limit on these: you keep all you get.) So, he fishes, and fishes, drowning worms by the do/en, \nd brags on his prowess to his aunts and his cousins. But it's just the warm-up, they'll soon sally forth, For game fish, and big ones,—you find them up north. * * * NOW. I HAVE SOME WORDS for this year's June bride. I think I really should take you aside, If you're marrying a fisherman, you need some advice, He may seem loving and thoughtful and on the whole, nice, But fishing's a fault, and you might as well face it, Don't fight it, my dear, nor try to erase it, Though you're lovely and sweet and really a dish, There'll be times your worst rival's an old slimey fish! + * * YOU'RE NOT ALONE IN the problem you face, I'.'s long been coped with by your friend, Grace. Who married a fisherman, some twenty years ago, And found out some things she never did know. First, if he brings home fish to his dear loving wife, And you go and clean them,.you're doomed for your life. He'll conjole you and flatter you and say he is tired, But in "love and obey", cleaning fish's not required. * * « GO FISHING WITH HUBBY, if it runs to your taste, (Moments together are too good to waste) If you don't like to fish, at the trees take a look, Read, knit or wander or be supper cook, But I want to warn some trips are pure stag, So you stay home cheerfully then and don't nag. Clean house, or be lazy while you are alone, He'll be so glad to see you when your fisher comes home. * * * ADMIRE EXTRAVAGANTLY, the fisherman's catch, But try to remember the big one of the batch, Is always the huge one that swam clear away, It was almost landed, then 'twas off down the bay! The fish stretched out lengthwise from "here out to there", "He fought me for hours; he was strong as a bear". To the tales, give a listen; for the flubs shed a tear, Your guy expects better luck, fishing next year. * * * FILLED BRIM TOP WITH hope, is a fisherman's life, It's somewhat less fun for the fisherman's wife. . There's lots worse diversions and sports for a man, . .. .. (Like taking to hashish; hitting grandmothers right an the pan) Not so dangerous as hunting—the worst he can do, Is fall in the lake, or maybe wet a shoe. It's as costly as golf, but when they are able, Fishermen bring home food for the table. . * * * WHEN A FISHERMAN'S YEARS on this earth are through, His heaven's not the same as for me and for you. No Ivory palaces, nor streets paved with gold, No harp playing angels, or so I've been told, His heaven's got lakes and rivers and streams, Pike flash in the sun; the trout really gleams. • And each one he catches in heavnly rebirth, Is two times as large as the big ones on earth! * * * , . • OF COURSE, IT IS NOT only the men who are ardent fishers, because many women enjoy the sport also. At our house, we have a grandma who goes fishing at every opportunity. I always thought that when her husband was alive she went on a fishing trip merely to accompany him, but since Grandpa's been gone .-she goes fishing anyway. She buddies up with some other grandmas — Hazel Lusby, Hazel Vera and Lizzie Post and they have a whee of a time.'Our Grandma is scared of worms, but Lizzie can't drive, so Grandma Rose does that, so it evens things up. * * • . FRANCES ODOR likes to fish, also, but she is beginning to' think her husband, Gordon pays more attention to the fish than he does to her. She sent him to buy her a fishing license a year ago, and when she looked a;t the information he gave, found'he had listed her height as 5 feet 10 inches! Frances is about 5 feet. 4. Gordon made-up for it somewhat, by listing Frances' age three years younger than she was then. This year, he did better on the height — 5 foot 6, but he listed her as atyear older 'than she is-now. * * * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE is for a new way I discovered to cook bullheads. By popular demand, the cook is always supposed to "fry them crisp". I got a little sick of hearing this at a .recent gathering so I figured out a way to crisp them without frying them. It's adapted from a way to fix oven chicken. Dip good sized bullheads in salad oil or melt shortening, then in rice crispy crumbs. (Be sure the fish are dry or the oil won't stick. You can buy the cereal already crumbed but it's easy to roll your own). Place on an .aluminum foil covered cookie sheet and bake in a 375 degree oven for about Vfe hour. You don't need to turn them. We thought they were very good this way. Try it and see. — GRACE.
