Today is the opening of fishing season in the land of 10,000 lakes. The Governor picks a different lake each year, and he and our Lt. Governor head out in separate boats to see who can catch the first, the biggest, and the most fish.
On the dock of the chosen lake this morning, after the singing of the National Anthem, our Governor proclaimed the fishing season to be open, and at his cry of "Gentlemen, start your engines," a crowd (herd? flock? covey? perhaps school?) of boats roared out into the lakes that had so recently shed their ice cover.
Wonder if the Governor's mansion will be serving fish for dinner? I imagine they have some hot dogs on hand, just in case.
