  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.
