No wins to report. The pickings have been kind of slim but they'll probably pick up around the holidays.
I had a rather strange thing happen. I think I've talked about Ziggy my Blue Delta Male Beta. Well, he died Sunday night after I had gotten an algae eater and algae ball that weekend. I called the store and told them but honestly, I thought I would cry on the phone. That little rascal was such a pet. When I got out of my chair he would race to the front to see if I was gonna feed him. He would go in his castle at night when he wanted me to turn off the aquarium light. He would follow your finger when you moved it across the outside glass. He was just so much fun. I feel like I did something wrong and feel so guilty. I'll probably get another beta but I'm still in grief. Who knew you could grieve for a fish?
Another reason I haven't gone to the pet store is the rain we've had from TS/Hurricane Beta. Since I've been staying away from the news I almost missed it coming this way. The apartments have me so well trained now that I took my plants down without being asked. I just lowered them to the floor but we didn't have any high winds here, just lots of light, picture-perfect rain.
My son is on vacation and flew over California. He sent me a picture of the fire through his airplane window. It was so sad. What a terrible year this has been.
Everyone is healthy around here. I hope my Son and DIL are still healthy when they get back but I refuse to let myself worry.
More later ....
