...went to the regular Monday morning meeting...sold Spring Fling stuff...T-shirts, leis, Panama hats, visors, and flower hair clips...

...looking over my "scored items" from the auction and raffle at AAPE yesterday...picked up about 5 species of plants, 3 gold giant gouramis, some plant food, an air pump to replace a little one, some Thrive ferts, and plant tabs...

...windy here today but warm...And Mugs, the taxes aren't really high here!..

...gonna go up to the neighbor park to a meeting about their talent show in March...My buddy Ron and I are in great demand for our routine we did last year.....! ...Right!...believe it...!
Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound...and zip ties, properly applied, can reduce the movement!

Took my old arthritic dog to the vet.  He is now on a non steroidal inflammatory, once daily, Neurontin 3 times daily, and an opiate as needed up to 3 times a day.  I got the opiate to use on grooming day but since he's been kind of hobbling around for the past few days I gave him one when we got home from the vet.

Always move forward. Never look back.

Remember my fish customer in Hollywood FL whose box I sent a week ago today?  I checked the tracking number just for the heck of it.  The box is out for delivery.    I hope the guy knows enough not to open those bags in the house.

My money says that if your packing/shipping has anything to do with it, they will be OK.  Even though a week is a long time.

I'm not afraid of work.  I can lay down right next to it and go to sleep.

Will they still be there when he gets home?  What with all the "porch pirates" nowadays someone might walk off with it.

I have agreed to replace the fish regardless.  He paid me the $30. shipping cost yesterday.   If any of the fish I sent are still alive he will still have to work to make them healthy again.  I will throw a party if they are alive.  If they are alive I need a gold medal for bagging and packing.

..if you fasted them well and the water didn't get too funky, and oxygen deprived....you've got a shot....I've had 'em go a week ok, but not all of the shipments either... huh
