The Painting:  This has been slumming around Highland Park in Dallas in multi-million dollar homes being staged and sold. Julie Guidry is a phenomenal decorator.  This piece is available for purchase.

The Thought:  I have heard of naming pet ducks lately, along with pet cows and pet donkeys and pet goats...but Terry had me the other morning when we were out feeding the fish.  

You know we live on what is commonly referred to in our neighborhood as Catfish Pond.  We have yet to see one in the three months living here.  We have seen them now and Terry has managed to name them.  Feeding the fish brought out the bass and the perch and FINALLY the catfish this week with their little whiskers.  (Terry rather looks like the conductor standing on the shoreline throwing out the food to the fish.)

When we feed the fish, the turtles come in MASSES from all over the pond, from little bitty of about three inches in size to the whopping big one that was about two feet across. He has started naming those too.  I am wondering if these is a disease one catches living in the country. "Name this animal". Thank you God for the names they already have, do they really need more?  My intent with this pond is to keep it healthy and feed the fish, fish the fish and eat the fish.  

Mind you I have to learn how to clean the fish but I am certain if I can whack up a whole chicken I can fillet a fish.  I need to just google it and learn how by trial and error.  But how do you eat fish that you named? We are having 'George' and his brother 'Charlie' for dinner? 

When we were out sailing today, we came across part of a trout line.  Not the best thing to run over with a boat, but in the middle of the lake in a sailboat you don't always have choices.  I would imagine those folks don't name their fish...they just catch them and eat them.   I know several weeks ago I wrote about sailing and as we came off the lake there was a fisherman with 100 huge fish... sand croppie? Sand Perch?  I can't remember names or varieties. That is a good thing or I might not eat the fish I catch in our pond this year.  Vicky won't eat her fish in her pond because they are her babies...fat well feed babies. What is wrong with this picture? 

I had not thought about Turtle Soup.... Never had it, have you?  I do not think I can eat my Turtles.
