    Right After Work, We Go To A Pond On The Golf Course Where There Is Literally Tons Of Perch, Catch About 10-15, Head Out To Lake Pontchartrain, Or The Miss. And Go To Town. We've Only Missed A Total Of 8 Days In The Last 17-1/2 Weeks, That We Havent Either Went Fishin', Crawfishin', Turtle, Or Frog Huntin'. I Also Teach Him How To Make Slat-traps, Crawfish, Crab, Rabbit, And Turtle Traps. And We Got The Garden Done A Few Weeks Ago. The Cajun (and All Of Our) Heritage(s) Are Going To S*#t! I Wont Be One Of The Ones To Flush It Down The Tubes. We've Got To Teach Our Kids This Stuff. Oh! By The Way,we've Been Fishin' By These Corn And Grain Elevators And Sometimes The Fish Are So Damn Full, They Look Like Their Bout' To Explode!!! I Cant Believe They're Still Hungry...but Thank God They Are...lol
