    Where’s Phil been lately?? He usually shows up during vacations?

    My Dad told me that his grandfather (who had a summer place on Lake Michigan) used to row out with a couple of quarts of beer, a pound of tomatoes and a salt shaker and fish most of the day.
    .
    He said he once asked him why he did it, since he knew he didn’t really like fish or fishing.
    .
    He said his grandfather said “We only have one boat, and your grandmother always thinks of lots of chores she needs done around here…”

    Their losses. (On one camping trip, Calvin didn’t understand what his father meant by cleaning a fish until they and Mom had cheese sandwiches for dinner instead.)

    On one hand… Val, you’ve already dealt with much more disgusting things than just putting a worm on a hook. On the other hand, go Wally.

    Alix would surely be able to bait a hook, but might object to injuring either the bait or the fish.

    Ah, peace and quiet. Everybody needs a nice time out. Living like a Borg is stressfull.

    In our family fishing outings(when our 3 were considerably younger), I rarely got to fish, my job was to take the fish off the hook and then re-bait the hook. But, those are some of the most pleasant memories of the times spent with our children ! !

    Not all women do that. I figure if you are an adult you can see what needs to be done. Apparently men can’t.

    Some men do the same thing. When we first got married, my ex tried to give me instructions on how to make the bed (like his mother did it). I explained I would be happy to let HIM do it any way he wanted. Otherwise it was being done my way.

    “Apparently, men can’t.”
    Oh, really?

    Men know what needs to be done. Women demand what they want done. Big difference. Most things women want done are NOT that important, in spite of what they think.

    And, just like georgiiii eluded to, we’d love to be able to tell them to do it themselves if it’s so important to them, but men can’t get away with that like women do.

    Some husband’s just does not want to work around the house look for excuses. Means the wife either has to do the work or let things go down. Means more expense latter.

    I’m surprised Alix did not jump at the chance, not surprised about the others. Wally wanted peace away from screaming and arguing children.
