Once upon a time when my grandfather was alive he was a great shot. Very strange things happened. This day he was shooting along by a lake. A woodcock rose up and at the same moment a salmon leaped up out of the water. My grandfather pulled the trigger and and shot the woodcock and salmon. He laughed so much at the idea that he fell back and smothered a hare.
