Now Who Did This Remind Us Of?

Carol reports that as she was jogging this morning, on the bike path by the canal she saw a boy, about nine years old, standing on the bank, fishing pole in hand, tackle box by his feet, silently waiting for a bite. Carol wondered, "Just what is he using for bait? A kernal of corn? A tiny ball of bread?" Sigh.

Well, it reminds us of Walter. He used to spend hours by the canal, often with our neighbor, Jason, fishing. I think they generally were using either corn kernels or balls of bread for their bait.

I was guessing walter, but I wasn't sure. Mainly, I was guessing walter, because I couldn't imagine Macon standing still that long.
