Fish for chickens

We all want some chickens. None more so than Licious. But, there is just too much going on right now to try to fortify the chicken coop and build roosting boxes and such. Next spring perhaps.

Until then we settled for these.



I tend to humanize all animal creatures. So imagine my delight when I snapped this photo of the goldfish looking right at me. I think we have really bonded. We connect on a spiritual level that fish and I. He (or is it a she) really gets me.

Dana,
When we were first married and in an apartment I got fish for a dog. And I loved those little fish! Sometimes they are just the thing to help you feel connected! :)

Ok...that's a little goofy...oh, I think he's looking at me. Definitely a guy!

So what's the name of the goldfish? I name everything, even houseplants, so I'm right there with you.

How funny, I just this minute snapped the cap off my Snapple and guess what the "real fact" on it is? As I was reading your blog? "A goldfish's attention span is three seconds." How funny! What a coincidence.

What a great shot! As a teenager I had a goldfish that lived for 6 years! He'd greet me everyday when I came home from school by banging his head on the side of the bowl. By the time he died, his head was flat!! He was adorable.
He totally "gets" you. I know it!

We're having the same chicken issues, as we are down to one rooster and one henny penny.

But no fish.

*sigh*

What a neat picture-I feel like he is looking at me too. I wish we had a place for chickens too.

What is it with us creative bloggers wanting chickens? It is an epidemic. I can't have any cause I live in the "city."
