6-AlBORo, (la.) Upper D«t Mo!n*» Thurtdey, Moy 13, 1945 NOW IS THE TIME, the beginning of clays, When usually sane husbands develop a craze, And sm.ill boys an>1 big noys, anci lots more others, Even including a fcw grandmothers, The itch is upon them to head for the lake, No matter the unfinished work in their \vake, And for strange behavior they give as their reason, The long-dreamed of opening - the fishing season ! - o - NOW, IN IOWA, the Season's about the fifteenth of May, But hardly an angler can wait for this day, 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 dozen, And nrags of 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. - o 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 just as well face it, You can't fight it, my dear, nor can you erase It, Though you're lovely and sweet and really a dish, There'll be times your worst rival's an old slimey fish I - o YOU'RE NOT ALONE IN the problem you fac«, It's long been coped with by your friend, Grace, Who for 20 odd years was a fisherman's wife, And hadn't gone fishing ten times In her life. In fact, she thought angling was all for the birds, And frequently said so in so many words, But she finally caught on that it's useless to moan, And started a fisherman's jag of her own I , - o THE ADDICTION WAS GRADUAL, not all In one day, It started with Father describing the Bay. "It's lovely out there - come take a look, You don't have to fish - you can read a book." So, I went along and for fun held a pole, But it wasn't till later that I lost my soul. When I landed a fish Instead of merely getting a bite, Hook, lyin', and sinker - I was caught without fight. - o- I'LL BRAG TO YOU FULLY of my latest catch, But try to remember the big one of the batch, Was a perfectly huge one that swam clear away, It was almost landed then 'twas off down the Bay. That fish stretched out lengthwise from here out to there, He sure gave a fight; he was strong as a bear These words sound familiar ? You've heard them you say? Well, all of us fisherman talk the same way I - o FILLED BRIM FULL OF Joy Is a fisherman's life, It can also be fun for the fisherman's wife. No reason why the guys should always go stag, While we sit at home and try not to nag. "If you can't lick 'em, join 'em", I always say, But I'm kind of worried that there'll come a day, When Father will counter, "I know you are tired But you caught 'em - now clean 'em I That's what's required." - o DURING THE WEEK OF MAY 9 through 15 people having birthdays include M.
