what happened after we got the fish home. | aniowagirl's Blog
between the two of us we had about 120 fish.my friend said you can have mine too. it was fun catching them but i don't want to have to clean all those fish.so i dumped the fish in the kitchen sink and began cleaning them.
after i had cleaned about a hundred or so mydad came home from work and was amazed. he said where did you catch all those fish, so i told him how they were bighting like crazy at the old quarry . he took my mom and my sister and went fishing too. after a while they returned and had about 200 more fish. we cleaned all those fish too.
then our sunday school superintendent and his wife and two daughters stopped by and we told them and they also went fishing. to make a long story short we ended up withmore than 600 fish that day.
we called everyone we knew neighbours and sunday school friends ,and people my dad worked with and we invited them all to a giant fishfry.every body brought something to eat and we had bread and fish and slaw and potato salad, ear corn , jello . acouple of people brought ice cream freezers along and we had home made ice cream too. all i all we had a couple of hundred people there at that fishfry and all because a couple of young boys decided to go fishing on an early spring morning.
the really pathetic thing about it is that you could offer that same kind of party now days and next to nobody would show up. people just don't do that anymore. too bad too. My mood: very contemplative
