    1. Yeah, they weren’t experts but they were enthusiastic. I had to caution them about wading out into a canal known to have alligators. I think they were playing hooky from school, too. 🙂

      1. ahh – the enthusiasm of youth. Sometimes it can carry one through the lack of knowledge. The alligators would be a bit treacherous though!


  1. I lived a block from the Miami River and placed burlap (croker) sacks along the banks on the path I used as I walked to school … 3rd-6th grades. The current kept the mouth of the sacks open and I tied them to trees. On the way home, I checked my sacks daily for the treasures dumped in them via the river currents. Everything from snakes, snapping turtles, baby gators, all variaties of river fish, frogs, eels. I learned to never fear and to handle everything with care. Countless times finned by catfish and bitten by everything. Fortunately nothing poisonous or “big.”

    Ideal “river rat” living for that age.


    1. The more you let slip about your youth the more remarkable your life becomes. I suggest you begin your autobiography post-haste!
