Environmental impact

Joshua's sixth grade class went to the Hagerman fish hatchery a couple of weeks ago. The state department of something or other provided fishing poles. Once the guides said that the best fishing was from the bridge area, the above was the result. It was pretty good fishing there, too. Something like half the kids caught fish in that spot. Josh, unfortunately, did not.

A friend from the college has a private fish hatchery and invited us to fish there. We may go in the next week or so. Fewer poles, more fish for the boys, hopefully.

I'm not really a fisherman, but I'm willing to go. The truck I bought recently has a bumper sticker on it... "Work is for people who don't know how to fish." I've been thinking of changing it. What would you change that last word to? "Work is for people who don't know how to _________."

I used to live at the Hagerman Fish Hatchery, then at Niagara Springs, then American Falls in a former life.

Work is for people who don't know how to watch reality tv.

(That's the most opposite thing of work I can envision.)

It's true, Pat did live down in a little valley right by the American Falls reservoir by a crystal clear tributary of the Snake. It was lovely there.

That's right Dr. Brown you came there once when we were aspiring poets. Those were the days!

"Work is for people who don't know how to surf the internet."

I would also go with, "When you have 4 kids trying to fish, fishing is work!"
