“Yes I think the biggest loss of life was when the Japanese sank the USS Indianapolis 1,196 crew members went into shark infested waters of the pacific and only 317 survived. It wasn’t the great white shark that was responsible for the attacks. It was the tiger and bull shark that took the lives of so many.’ Apparently from what I read there were so many injured men in the water it caused a feeding frenzy with all the blood in the water.

Another interesting fact is that a shark can sense just one drop of blood in the water for miles and home in on it.

By the time they got home it was dark, Susan helped Harry carry his equipment to the coal house where it was stored away then locked with a heavy duty padlock.

Harry asked Susan if she would like to come in but Susan said that it was late and she just wanted to go home, take a shower then go to bed. She kissed Harry before getting back into the car.’

“I’ll call you tomorrow night; I know that you are going to be pretty busy with Sunday lunches.’

“Yes, it’s our busiest day of the week.’

“Safe drive home then.’

“Bye Harry and thanks again for a lovely day.’

She pulled away and Harry stood and watched her go before turning up the path and opening the door and going inside.

“Had a good day love shouted his mother as he took off his fishing clothes and washed himself and putting on his pyjamas?’

“Aye mam, it rained for a couple of hours this afternoon but it didn’t spoil our enjoyment we caught five fish between us.’

I cannot see the point of catching a fish that you cannot eat.’

“You can eat carp mam but they have a catch and release policy.’

“I bet you’re hungry are you.’

“I made some mince and onion pie and there’s some new potatoes and mixed veg that you can heat up in the microwave. It’ll only take a few minutes.

“Thanks mam. Is our Alan back yet?’

“You know him son, he’ll be in when he gets in.’

Alan walked into the kitchen then placed a spatter cover over his dinner and put it into the microwave and set the dial for six minutes.’

He filled the kettle then plugged it in he popped a couple of tea bags into the pot that his mother had been using for over forty years. It had been her mother’s before that.

He sat down at the table and waited whilst the turntable inside the microwave went around and around until the ding told him that his dinner was hot enough to eat. He had poured the water into the teapot then stirred it. His mother insisted that a pot of tea tasted better after it had masted for three minutes. Pouring out three  pots he added milk and sugar then took them into the living room and gave one to his father who was watching Match of the day.’
