Hey, Middle Sister

“In the cabin the fisherman’s daughter,
The strangely beautiful fisherman’s daughter.”
-Heinrich Heine, The North Sea–First Cycle

I’ll keep taking you along if you’ll keep coming.  You’re good company, and with you, small fish are whales.  Papa needs that sometimes.  Maybe you need it too.

You bring your mud boots and those curls; I’ll bring the fishing stuff and the candy.

I’ll bring the kleenex next time, too.


  1. I’m really glad you’re blogging again. This post makes a fisherman’s daughter cry… but in a good way.

  2. Ahhhhhhh. That precious little Jolie ruth!

  3. Oh, hilarious. Sweet Jolie.

  4. That’s a good lesson for all of us. If I get skunked, but my kids catch. Big win!
