For some reason, the Marcus town pool never opened up until mid-June, so we spent the early days of summer fishing for bullheads at the lake in Paullina, which was north of our farm. I never liked eating bullheads, but they were fun to catch, at least when I was this young in the photo above. The lake also had a swimming area with a slide and a diving platform. It’s been a long time since I’ve been there. I wonder if kids still swim in the lake. Maybe someone could let me know!
