Kit Carson’s Breakfast

onceupunatimegreenWhen Kit Carson wasn’t out exploring, he lived on a small farm.

One day, the famous frontiersman decided to surprise his wife with eggs and fish for breakfast. Arising early, he went down to the henhouse and collected some fresh eggs. There were only six. On the way back, he stopped at the pond and landed a magnificent large-mouth bass.

He wasn’t sure how to carry everything—then he had an idea. He carefully dropped the eggs inside the fish and started for home. Suddenly, the Western hero found himself confronted by a mean, hungry looking wolf.

Fearing that he might become a meal for the canine, he threw the bass aside and hurried up a nearby tree. From there, he watched as the wolf grabbed his fish, eggs and all, and ran off.

When Carson got back home empty handed, he related the adventure to Mrs. Carson, who responded, saying, “You shouldn’t have put all your eggs in one bass, Kit.”
