It was sort of sad. I went out to pond last Sunday to see how the little guys were doing and noticed that one looked like it was wedged between two leaves. I went over and the poor guy was dead. All of the fish had died as a result of the hail storm. I had had those fish (or their predecessors) for at least 10 years. It sorta broke my heart. Poor little guys. The hail acted as a concussive and wiped them all out. So, this morning, I went out and got 10 more Comet goldfish. They cost me twenty-seven cents a piece. Seriously. I let them sit in the water for a bit and then let them out (not the correct procedure). They are happily swimming in the biggest fish tank they’ve ever seen. It’s also hot here and humid as all get out, so I had a choice of either getting the fish, now, or filling in the pond (due to the mosquito problem of having a huge body of water with no movement). I’m not quite up to filling in the pond. I still love watching my fish and the birds flapping around in the shallow end bathing. Plus, the raccoons do not eat goldfish, but adore Koi, so it’s goldfish here.
I completely crapped out this past week on blogging. Well, to be honest, I worked and came home for the most part. I finally caved and called the doctor. I thought I was just having a nasty allergic reaction to the mold and stuff, but in reality, I had a huge sinus infection. I finally caved and called my doctor. They asked my symptoms and, without hesitation, told me they would call in a prescription. I hate doing that for a sinus infection, but the minute it heads for my chest, I cave. I’m much better now;-P
I promise to come back soon because I have a couple of things to show you. It’s so exciting! Have a wonderful relaxing Saturday!!!
