“You’ve heard of the fool on the hill,” said Crisp looking down on the boy fishing in the sunset, “well, this is the fool on the lake.”
“You’re being a bit harsh, aren’t you?” I questioned.
“He’ll never catch anything out there, the water is too quiet,” answered Crisp, “everyone knows quiet water means the fish are asleep.”
“I think that’s a load of nonsense.”
“Well, watch and see if he does catch anything.”
So I did, and he didn’t.
I wondered at that moment if I could bottle this quiet water and sprinkle it over a sleeping Crisp, a quiet day with her could be something of an asset.
Suddenly she jolted me from my reverie.
“Dream on,” she said, “I know what you are thinking.”

Oh, this has me laughing. Though I have often thought I’d like to bottle the quiet the exists around Breydon Water (at high tide with no wind!)
Thanks so much. Bottling the quiet would come in handy from time to time.
It would indeed. And I know when I@m walkingbeside Breydon Water I don’t want to come home. Not that home is noisy, but that little clip of town between there and here certainly is.
Thanks so much.
Good one! It’s like trying to fish on a bright sunny day, no luck! I think the photo looks like good fishing weather 😄

Thanks so much.
Fun take Michael. She knows you well!
Love the end Michael 👍👍👍
Laughed out loud at the ending. Clever Crisp. She knows you far too well. 😀
I had to laugh through this.
And… may I have a bottle of this stuff? I could use it!
I think there’s a real market out there for the stuff. Thanks for stopping by.
You’d make a killing.
