  • A bear went a fishin’ he did go ahum!

    Here's one that I carved for myself just for the fun of it. However, I've already had orders from the boss lady not to give it away. Pretty soon our Livingroom bookcase is going to collapse from the weight of all my work. Anyway, I wrote a little ditty to go along with it. If you can sing or whistle it's to the tune of "A Frog Went A Courtin'!

    A Bear Went A Fishin’
    (To the Frog Went A Courting melody)

    A bear went a fishin’ he did go ahum
    A bear went a fishin’ he did go ahum
    A bear went a fishin’ one fine day
    To a pond he knew on down the way. ahum, ahum, ahum

    He set his line with a wiggly worm ahum
    He set his line with a wiggly worm ahum
    He set his line with a wiggly worm
    A big old fish he did yearn. ahum, ahum, ahum

    No time had passed he got a bite ahum
    No time had passed he got a bite ahum
    No time had passed he got a bite
    Such a little fish, oh but what a fight! ahum, ahum, ahum

    His line went in just one more time ahum
    His line went in just one more time ahum
    His line went in just one more time
    All he caught was a boot with slime! ahum…. ahum…… ahum

          Very nice carving, Eddy, and the boot is a great addition. I think all fisher people can identify with it.

                  We got some wind and quite a bit of rain, but all is ok here. East New Orleans (Arabi area) got hit bad, though.

                    Yes, we caught that on the news but it wasn't clear exactly where all the damage was located. Glad to hear that you made out okay!

                  It must be fishing season. I got my license Friday. Hope to do better than your bear.

                    Good luck Joe. I miss those days. I always use to get a temporary license when up at our place in east Tennessee, and now that I'm so **** old that I don't need a state license to fish here on the Gulf Coast none of my kids seem interested anymore.
