Tea Party--D.

My father-in-law informed us that D. has a new nickname around town: Fish. Eventually, Fish, w/fish*, made an appearance. For a while, big Fish wore a frilly red dress over his jeans and sweatshirt, but he wouldn't let anybody take his picture.

*Little fish is D.'s first catch of the season--an eight-pound carp he pulled out of Pope Creek, which runs behind J.C.'s parents' place in rural Rio, Illinois. Mama J wrapped the fish in a towel and then double-bagged it and stuck it in the freezer, as the family debates whether or not little fish should be stuffed and mounted or smoked.

I'm hoping for smoked, too. I've never had smoked carp, but everybody who's had it seems to love it--even those strange people who, for whatever reason, don't like fish.
