Happy Birthday to Us

Most people don't know that I'm a fan of very few comic strips, but one I am a fan of is Unshelved, the strip about a library. My favorite character is Dewey, the YA Librarian with a kickback attitude. I've always liked him, but now that I'm a YA libarian myself, I must admit my feelings have grown :-) Today happens to be his creator's birthday, just one day before my own. So as Bill and Dewey celebrate their day, let me remind everyone that my birthday is just a few hours away!

You Just Can't Get Attached to Fish (Heavy Sigh)

Just when I thought the fish were safe - since the deeper pond and the ScareCrow were keeping the predators away . . .
. . . this one died of seemingly natural causes!

Oh well, now we have just two koi and 3 -5(I won't know until the weather gets warmer and they start moving around more) goldfish to watch this winter.
