Our neighborhood, I remarked to Mrs. Koontz the other day, is looking "pretty" this time of year. She said that word did not quite seem right for our country-style hood, so I revised my comment to say the neighborhood looked "right pretty" this time of year.
Mrs. Koontz said, "Right pretty will do."
The fish, though slow Sunday afternoon, was marvelous Monday near the Blue Ridge Parkway. I caught a dozen little brook trout and some wild browns.
