When I was a boy, Grandpa used to take me and my brother fishing down at the river every other Saturday. Grandpa would set up his lawn chair near the river, cast his line in the water, fix his pole near the shore, and then fall asleep.

One day, while Grandpa slept, we decided to tie a rope from his fishing pole to a nearby boat. We knew he had a little bell on the end of his fishing pole that would wake him up, what we didn’t know was Grandpa had a line tied from his fishing pole to his leg. The boat dragged Grandpa half way into the lake before he got that rope off his leg.

It’s been twenty-five years since Grandpa got dragged in the lake. He still tells the story now and then. When he does my brother and I just nod our heads and repeat his words “Yep, must have been the biggest Catfish in the whole world...”

It wasn't my fault...I fell asleep and missed my stop.
