The Black Bitch and other Tales – The Lobster Pot by Geoff Cronin

The Lobster Pot by Geoff CroninOne evening in late summer, two guys from the Skerries (Co Dublin) area decided to go over to the Island to shoot rabbits. So they put their rifle into the punt followed by a case of beer – in case they became overcome by thirst – and in due course they arrived on the island and spent the next few hours shooting rabbits and drinking cans of beer.When the beer was all gone they went back to where the punt was moored, loaded their bag of rabbits and as dark was descending they set off in the best of form for the mainland.They proceeded at a leisurely pace, and after a while the pangs of hunger, helped by cans of beer began to appear and they fell to talking about what they might have for supper.“A nice bit of fried rabbit would be just the thing,” remarked one.

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.
