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!
