The guy from Delaware

It was my last season on Guano Lake, though I didn’t know that then. I had achieved permanent civil servant status and my new wife, Wanda, had a good job in a hospital records section. I was teaching Wanda to hunt ducks. To round it off, January came in cloudy, windy and wild.

I learned duck hunting on the Guano when I was still a teenager. For just under $10 I rented a rowboat, a three-horse Evinrude and a dozen decoys. In 1969 I rented from Mr. DeGrove, who had a fish camp on the northwest lakeshore. I had my own decoys by then.
