WILLIAM C. Posted February 11, 2008 Report Share Posted February 11, 2008 What was to be a big day for my second youngest grandson,a little over five years of age-didn't go as planned. His dad was to bring him to the Tinley Park Fishing Show and he was going to sign up as a member just like grandpa.Upon getting up Saturday morning he was to find out that dad was sick and also his pet frog Hermie had died.All of this on his mom's birthday. He was feeling very sad so mom decided to drive him from Elmhurst to the show so he could sign up as an ISA member and get his starter kit.Now he was feeling a little better. Sunday morning ,as his mother tells me on the phone,he was still feeling sad about his frog. Mom suggested that they find a small box,have a little ceremony and bury Hermie. He said "Mom,we can't do that--I want to use him for bait" He is on his way to being a great fisherman and I want to welcome him aboard Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
