Mom, loved fishing with her sisters Nola and Elizabeth. They would go camping for 2 weeks or more at river. Someone would take a camper down to the river camping spot. They'd fish all day play rummy at night. One day a park ranger came down where she was fishing and asked to see her license. She got so mad. Loved when she told that story.
