When we were done fishing I drove back to the boat dock and my dad went and got the truck and I loaded the boat. We went to the fish cleaning station and started to clean the fish that we had caught. Then we saw my mom 's car coming toward us. She watched us clean the fish and I made my sister touch the slimy fish. I don 't think mom cared much for the slime on my clothes and my stench of fish.
He embraced he prowess as a handy man and would always buy old run down vehicles and boats as fixer uppers. My father would start the story by saying, “going fishing with John was always an adventure.” He would then begin to tell the story of the time him and my mother had gone fishing with Pawpaw John at Angola’s lake.

The guys and us two kids got back in the truck to drive to the property in Missouri where we would be hunting. It was time to go check out the land we would be hunting on.

He said Bill Harper doesn’t know very much about fishing and I do so I think if you don’t mind I’ll get up early in the morning and meet Harper and he and I will go fishing.” (Trumbo 29) This shows the reader how uncomfortable and nerve racking it was for the son to ask his father these questions, which helps in better understanding the
First, The story The Things They Carried is written in different points of view of the same story of what happened in Vietnam. In the chapter, “Speaking of Courage” it states, “The war was over and there was no place in particular to go. Norman Bowker followed the tar road on its seven mile loop around the lake, then he started all over again, driving slowly, feeling safe inside his father’s big Chevy, now and then looking out on the lake to watch the boats and water-skiers and scenery”(page 131, O’Brien). This chapter is written in third person to show how the character felt and it shows the actions the character took based on those feelings.

But while we were walking down the dirt road to our next fishing hole I slipped. I almost fell off a rocky hill but my dad caught me. He was my hero that day, and he always has been. That day he may have saved me from breaking a few of my bones, and maybe even death. I love my dad so much.
But this time we brought our fishing poles. Me my cousin and my dad went to the big doc away from all of the people swimming and started fishing.
