Fortunately, a private fish breeder that has provided FiN with catfish for stocking also had experience raising white bass. Phalen was chosen because it’s part of a chain of six lakes with varying water depths, all located in a regional park with three fishing piers as well as other shore fishing opportunities, boat access, parking and other amenities.

The narrator’s not eager to attend the birthday party of this precocious, allergic, fountain pen wielding stranger, but Marshall Armstrong’s house turns out to be a similar parade of wonders, from the thrilling (“We all ride down the special fireman’s pole, from the top of the house to the bottom”) to the intriguing (“We take turns looking at the sky through a telescope, and through a microscope at the cut on Jane’s arm.”) to the borderline snarky (“Bernadette has to go home early”).
