First of all, I'd like to say thanks to all of you who stopped by for author, Virginia Wright's guest post. You left some wonderful comments for her! The winners of the giveaway are Winnie and Vanisha. Congratulations!
Second, my commenting and posting here is going to be sporadic for the next few days. We're having our entire house painted, so our main computer is down, and our Wi Fi connection is not always available. I'll do my best to post and comment on everybody's blogs, but if I'm not here, you'll know why.
Now, for the story. A couple of months ago, one of our angelfish disappeared.
"Mama, where did it go?" my son asked.
"I don't know," I said. "Maybe it went into the castle and died. Fish do that sometimes."
I never saw the body, so it was a bit of a mystery, until yesterday. We had to move the fish tank so that the painters could get to the wall behind it. And guess what was lying on the floor behind it? Yep. The dead angel fish. Apparently he wanted to head for the open sea, like that fish in the movie, Finding Nemo. One of his buddies decided to jump out of the tank, too. So there were two dead fish on the floor.
My husband looked at them and laughed. "They should've watched Finding Nemo to figure out a better way to get to the sea!"
Yeah, something like that. I personally think they got a look at Schultz's big head when he stuck his snoot by the the tank. He probably scared the heck out of them, and they died trying to escape!
