Did You Know?
Over the River and Through the Wood is also known as “The New-England Boy's Song about Thanksgiving Day”, originally published in 1844 in Flowers for Children, Volume 2, written by Lydia Maria Child.
Although many people sing “to grandmother's house we go”, the author's original words were “to grandfather's house we go”. Child was a novelist, journalist, teacher, and poet who wrote extensively about the need to eliminate slavery.

Who Said it?
And from last week's blog, did you recognize the writing? Maybe you made a lucky guess? Or, slipped to the dark side and asked Google? For those who didn't know the answer and didn't Google it, the author was Ernest Schweibert. It was a beautiful answer to the question, “Why do you fish?”

We have just two spots left for anglers to join us at Estancia Tecka, Argentina, March 21-28, 2020, excluding travel time. Estancia Tecka is an amazing 435,000 acre privately owned sheep ranch with more than 100 miles of private water on the ranch. Fish dry flies on the lovely little Tecka River, look for a big fish on the Corcovado River and go after trophies on the lakes. It's all fun.
We have a rod for one woman who will share an accommodation and guide with another woman already signed up, and the same for a guy – one rod to share an accommodation with another gentleman already signed up.
