fishy fishy fishy

Alaska update: Mike caught a fish! The first fishing excursion was a deep-sea trip and the guys caught a collective 300 pounds of halibut. One fish weighed 100 pounds and they had to SHOOT IT. The next day was a river trip where Dad, Lou, and John all caught 20+ pound salmon. Yesterday they fished the river right behind the lodge and none of them had success until the evening when Dad caught a 44 inch, 40 pound salmon! Everyone think good fishy thoughts for Mike so he is not a one fish wonder on this trip.

I thought maybe you were giving me a shout-out. Fish.

But no, this time, Esther was really talking about a fish.
