A friend of mine asked if I thought there were still any mermaids in Arizona.
As a child I well remember seeing one navigating the shallows in the Verde River down by Old Salt Mine Road. There was those who said it was just a big ol' catfish floppin' about, but I knows what I seen. Of course that was many years a'gone, but sumthin' pokes holes in inflatable rafts down at Canyon Lake an steals food from campsites at night. I reckon there's prolly still a few of them critters about.
