... ...Then along comes this catfish 'bout the size of a house.Well ,alright,maybe a little smaller than that.Little Lester starts to thinkin' it's goin' to eat him sure'nough.Man ,you shoulda seen him!He got outta the water fast as lightning and climed up a tree.Big Billy Bob and I just laughed and laughed.To this day,Lester won't go near that place.
