Editor's Note: Here's a question, were the bullheads alive? Was he having a fish fry or stocking his pond? I think Allen just could not physically pass up a deal even if it really wasn't one. It just had to sound like a deal and he was on board. Free fish, hell ya sign him up. In fact, he'll bike 37 1/2 miles over 5 hrs with a shortened leg to get in on the ground floor of the bullhead giveaway. I'll bet he had a conversation with Frank and tried to borrow a cart but was told if he wanted the fish he'd have to figure it out himself-which he did and was quite proud of it too. I can't say I'm not impressed.
