There always has to be one of us in the Thanksgiving crowd, the one who asks, “Okay, what is the single thing you are most thankful for this year?” This year that annoying person was me. And my dad gave a totally awesome answer: “I’m thankful I don’t have to clean fish anymore.”
Believe me, he’s cleaned his share. Here’s one of them from a time long, long ago, and no, apparently a measuring stick wasn’t a reliable enough tool to record the size of a honking big catch. The fish’s length also had to be judged against the height of the smallest child. Anyone who can tell me why the child is facing away from the camera gets 50,000 bonus points.
