something's fishy

Take a look. This is me in PA's boat.
I don't spend much time in it; it just takes up space in our garage.
The other day, though, PA took it away, and when it came back, it smelled fishy.
I took a stroll to try to figure out where the smell was coming from.
And look what I found! PA said it was a big old 6 pound bass!
He was so proud of his catch! It was about as big as me. He decided to take it to a pond close to our house so that other people could have fun catching it, too. I was just glad it didn't wiggle around when it was being measured.
Now this is something that can't be measured: the love my grandma has for my grandpa! Today would have been my their 63rd wedding anniversary. This is their engagement picture. Aren't they cute?
Here is their wedding picture and their 60th wedding anniversary picture. I know this will be a sad day for grandma, but she was sure lucky to have him in her life for so many years!

That bass IS almost as big as you Petra! You should go out on the boat with your Pop sometime. We bet you'd have fun.

Coincidentally, April 21st is our Mom and Pop's anniversary too! Although it has only been 8 years for them :-)
