This is a repost from way back in the archives.. I've hauled it out to dedicate it to my dear friend Ted Sheridan, our resident fishing enthusiast.  (I was 'lured' by your kindness, Ted). (grin)


A man named Ted lived far away
But Katy found him anyway
And though he hadn't much to say
His writings held her interest.
He told her that he likes to fish
(and secretly she made a wish)
To watch his talents make a splish
Splash.  Put him to the test.
A quiet day, perhaps some rain
She hopes to have the sun refrain
From burning to the point of pain
So they can do their best
At loading up on fishes fine,
To eat with glee, perhaps some wine.
"Oh, look, a fish!"... :"it isn't mine!"
"He's too much of a pest!"
"My fish are all the funny ones."
"They brought along some hotdog buns."
"The worms are for the stupid ones."
"They will not pass our test!"
"So, let's have fish for lunch," she cried.
"They've come to mourn the ones who died."
"Those stupid ones... the ones we fried."
"Give weanies to the rest!"


Note:  Most fish, as a rule, do not eat hotdogs. (Ahem)

Now which is supposed to go in the hotdog buns: the fish or the worms?

Cool one, Katydid. Repost, you say? I don't quite remember this one. Did I review it before? Oh well, I've read it now and that's what matters. Maybe someday you and I can have tea at Cooper's Rock.

I'm glad you reposted this, Katy - I missed it the first time around. It brings along a huge grin - good write!

Katy, almost missed this one. Our lures catch even the smart fish. Oh yeah, I won't even eat hotdogs. Do you have any idea what's in those things?....

Ted has got to love this. I think it is totally delightful. More fun than a fish tank full of monky-fish. For some reason it reminds me of the "Tale of the Walrus" in "Alice in wonderland." Lonny
