Household Chores

by Carmen Hardin

I shirked my household chores today. First a latte. Then I wrangled the canoe on top of the car. And a second latte. I was ready to go fish. At a lake with plentiful, large and easy bass. At least that's what I was told.

So a short drive ensues. Unload the canoe. Make sure coffee cup doesn't tip over as I launch the canoe. And I start fishing. And I watch some fish. Small bluegills. A sunfish. But they're fish.

And there are the turtles. The lake is so clear I can see them several feet under me. Or swimming next to me. They don't seem at all bothered by me or my boat.
