I've written before about the creek that flows through my back
yard, and how it dried up completely this year.  Now we've had
about 2 weeks worth of rain, and the creek is flowing again.  Just
this afternoon I netted a 4" creek chubsucker near my house.  I
wonder where he was hiding all this time?  In a deep pool far
downstream, or in a crawdad burrow?  Whereever he came from, it
didn't take him long to find greener pastures.


"Cry to it, nuncle. as the cockney did to the eels when she put
'em i' the paste alive; she knapped 'em o' the coxcombs with a
stick, and cried 'Down wantons, down!'"
