"I've lived on rivers and streams all my life. I grew up on a creek in southern Minnesota. And now I live on the Ottertail River and take my girls down the river fishing. The other day we went down, my daughter needed something for show-and-tell, so we went down to a beaver lodge and got a beaver cutting, which she was very proud of, and brought to her class and explained what the source of that piece of log was. And it's something I'm thankful that I can pass on to my daughters."
