Fishing around

Now that the Joneses are settled into their country estate, Brennan is all about going down to their lake to fish. In fact, if he's not filling up the dogs' swimming pool or doing burnouts on his John Deere tractor, most evenings you can find him down at the lake, fishing pole and fishing advice at the ready.

We're one month into the fishing fixation, and so far we've been advised that "You have to be patient and wait for the fish. Patient." And for the most part, he is. Best of all, he sold out his own mother when she snagged her line carrying her pole back to the house, and was quick to tell us that "Mommy doesn't catch fish. Mommy catches trees."

Brennan's so darned serious about the whole matter that he could probably even convince his squeamish Aunt Debbie to take a fish off the line for him.

But let's hope it doesn't come to that.
