my kids love to go fishing. this means driving to a small pond close to home or out to family land, digging up or buying worms, getting a can of pop, sitting in the prairie quiet, clearing a spot of tall grass, watching the brown water for bubbles, often never catching a thing.
so imagine their delight to come upon this.

5 signatures later we were fishing. jerry asked if there were really fish in there. within minutes all three had caught a fish. this guy really enjoyed showing jerry up.
the chicago river has new memories for us now!
