Teach a man to fish and he will be slumped in a comfy chair at the end of the dock with a fishing line in the water, a cooler full of iced-beer and a BBQ covered in hamburgers. He will appear in the cottage only when more beer is required, or he needs to urinate, or both.
Later, he will glowingly show you a minnow that is expected to feed 10. Then he will fall asleep on the couch and begin snoring, which may well threaten to blow the roof off of the cottage and most certainly will not allow anyone else to sleep! Or else, you have been summoned to help put out the BBQ fire at the end of the dock!
I have not posted in a month due to the passing of my mother on December, 14, 2017.
