I know I have already blogged about frogs once this week, but I have to share this with you.
In my job I talk to a lot of people. As is true with most Nebraskans, those people are by far, really great people. “There is NO PLACE like Nebraska.” But, I do hear some b-i-itching and complaining from time to time, and a little bit of that gets O-L-D in a hurry.
But then I get letters like this one:
Greetings from Outdoor Nebraska,
While fishing, my grandson, John Doe, saw a bullfrog and decided to see if he could catch it. With a pole, small hook and a piece of cloth he dangled the tidbit in front of this “master angler” frog, who watched it for a couple of seconds and then attacked it. I don’t know who was more startled.
The picture turned out really good. Years ago you told me if I eve had a good outdoor pic that I should send it to you for advertising the outdoors, covers of fishing folders, etc.
So, after 25 years, I finally get a pic that I though you might be able to use.
Thanks for all you do for the fishing in our state.
On the side of the letter this note was hand-written, “This was a real wild frog–no petting zoo!”
That letter, and that picture, make it all worthwhile!
Find a kid, take ’em fishing, get out and enjoy our great Nebraska outdoors! Have a great weekend!
