    That fish is one of my "babies." It was caught with hook and line. But, I have been noodling, including in Oklahoma. I have pictures, I just can't find them right now.

    One of my other great hobbies, besides amateur radio, is raising fish, primarily trophy bluegill. It is always fun to throw a line into one of our ponds. You never quite know what might be on the other end. The ponds are setup for kids and people older than me. I also raise big hybrid bluegill and big hybrid striped bass. Most winters, but not this one, I usually put in WV golden trout.

    Young friends enjoying the ponds:

    The minnows and hooks we use for the big ones:

    Our old furry cat knows exactly how to do exactly the same thing you describe regarding the hardwood vs. the carpets. His digestive system isn't what it used to be. We have no idea how old he is. We got him as a rescue about 7-8 years ago. We figure he was 6-8 at that time.

    Our little calico is much better mannered. She is one-eyed, and also a rescue.

    That is him below. His doctor thinks he is a purebred Siberian Forest Cat. He has three separate layers of fur. He is waterproof and frost resistant. Somebody had him neutered and had his front claws removed before he became homeless.

    Somebody abandoned him in a relative's neighborhood. He was homeless for over two years that I know of. I "catnapped" him after a very bad winter and a summer week where it got to over 100 degrees every day. He mostly went begging from house to house.

    A neighbor called the animal warden to try and get him a home. I happened to be there when the animal warden was ready to incarcerate him. I was able to put him in the backseat of my truck and take him out to our farm. His fur was all matted at the time. His ribs were visible through his thick fur. He quickly adapted to country life. He loves people. When he hears the UPS truck a mile away he races to the end of our walkway (our driveway is 1/3 mile long from the county road). As soon as our UPS driver stops and opens his door, this silly cat jumps in the UPS truck to help and to inspect, .

    What an appropriate name. If he should ever get lost, at least Officer Obie should have twenty-seven 8x10 glossy photos!

    With circles and arrows on the back of each one, no doubt.
