    • Thanks, Maj and Sher. Fortunately, we don’t get much serious hail around here. Although many years ago I had a Renault Le Car (remember them?) with a large canvas sunroof. We got golfball-sized hail one summer that pulverized that canvas top. However, it didn’t dent the car, surprisingly enough.

    • I don’t eat fish pulled out of the Rio Grande (I’m not much of a fish lover in general), but the people who were catching them said they eat them.

    • Thanks, Art. I noticed the catfish and the vimpire had similar expressions. Fortunately, I was able to get the shot before the guy moved the catfish.

  1. Nnnooo! The lippies, Timothy, remember? Cute. Not food. I don’t blame you for water preferences. I do not eat fish either. Apparently, I eat crab meat when knowledge of what I’m eating is concealed from me (and lavender cosmos is in the picture).

  2. Oh wow your tshirt and the fish look like an art piece when I first looked at this. Nice shot and catch. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’œπŸ’œ

    • Hi Michelle Marie. That’s not my shirt. Some stranger fishing on the Rio Grande. It is a nice catch both for him and me.

  3. We saw our first ever catfish yesterday. Sadly dead, floating in the canal. It was huge and we couldn’t work out what it was as we’ve never seen a fish that big here before.

      • πŸ˜ƒwow, I only saw a big catfish once, and it was already dead πŸ˜”

        Are you a fan of catfish?πŸ˜ƒ

        Do you enjoy eating them or you enjoy seeing them, or both?πŸ˜ƒ

      • Hi Vincent. I’m not much of a fish eater, and I don’t like fishing. I would much rather see them swimming around than on a hook.

      • πŸ˜…I see you have heart for fish. It’s nice. Imagine those little creatures on a hook

        So if you don’t like fishes, what of beef πŸ₯© or any hard meat πŸ–

  4. Big catfish. They do say mrrrow … too. You just can’t hear them. πŸ˜‰

    Catfish are incredibly hard to clean when you catch them rivers and lakes (can you say mud). But, farmed catfish, not so bad.

  5. Interesting shot! Poor little catfish. I mean ; cat – fish. First time I saw one I was 8. Terrified the bejesus out of me. I was destined for a vegetarian life at an early age. I had a pet turkey at 15. My dad said the skunks got him, but in fact he was Thanksgiving dinner. I’ve never eaten turkey since.
