“May the devil make a ladder of your backbone -
While he is picking apples in the garden of Hell” - Old Irish toast
Seems I'm still stuck in a creative Hell, or at least mining it for inspiration. This recent run of fishing gags might leave the mistaken impression that I like to fish, but in all my years of Alaskan residency I've yet to extend my subsistence past the seafood isle in the supermarket. Hell, I don't even like salmon, unless it's smoked to perfection.
“I don't eat Salmon because I identify too much with spawning, thrashing around and death.”
