Kickass young hunter old fish

Kickass, the doorstop dog, says the keeper briefly went into something of a funk this morning after seeing two age-related stories on the same page of the daily paper: one gave the details of a six-year-old girl shooting a six-point buck, and the other was about a very old fish—46 or so, being caught up near the Apostle Islands.

This being the deer season, from which he is retired, and trying to remember anything about being six years old except how he learned to tie his shoes, the keeper was more entertained by learning that the 46 year old lake trout was about a hundred in human years.

That somehow cheered him up—to know that up in the beautiful environs of Lake Superior there is a fish older than he is, even if not by that much.
