Bonsai is one of my passions, but I also love to fish.  Like most in the South, I grew up fishing.  My grandparents had a house on Fowl River, another at Orange Beach, and another had a camp in Mississippi.  My parents also took us on vacations at Gulf Shores, needless to say, my childhood memories are filled with glorious triumphs with a cane pole and reel and rod.

If you liked this article, The Secret Lives of Aphids, You might find this one interesting as a follow-up.  There is something about bugs...I don't know, maybe it is just the kid in me--poor mom, I was always bringing something home in a jar to keep in the bedroom. Ahh, the memories, like the time the six foot speckled king snake escaped his enclosure, never to be found. Enough of that...

For supper a few nights ago, my wife prepared a surprise side dish for us--pear salad.  Pear salad my sound kinda mundane to you, but this just wasn't any pear salad, it was pear salad, Heart of Dixie style.  If you are a child of the late sixties or early seventies and grew up in the in the South, you had this at home or at grandma's house, maybe even both!

Happy St Patrick's Day from the Heart of Dixie, home of the Creighton Leprechaun.  While leprechauns are usually associated with Irish lore and are home based in Ireland, apparently one made it across the pond years ago and appeared one night in Creighton, an area in the City of Mobile.
