Our coldest day this fall with temps around 37, but sun later this afternoon.  Should make for great walking weather.

I'm now officially out of the "Computer Consulting" business saying goodbye to my last customer on October 31st.  Now to clean-up my server and purge out 30 years of programming projects and customer data....

I'm hopeful I'll get back to fish, but not just yet.  I just don't have the spark.  Seems like every time I think I'm going to turn the corner something else bad happens.  I think I can see a faint light at the end of the tunnel though.

I'll give you a shout when I get the urge.  I'm thinking I'll setup a big tank with a pair of wild-type angels.  Would love to watch a pair in a display tank raise a batch of fry.  No doubt I could get lost watching them.....  It's been many years since I've kept angels.

Fish room is still there, but just empty tanks.  Just the two turtles out there.  Got a 75 in the living room with everything else.  After 4 years of no spawning, and giving fish away, that's not to much.  Rain water collection is still setup, but it just overflows into the yard.

I can send you plants....I've really enjoyed having one tank to maintain...however, every time I go to a club meeting and see the fish auctioned off, I get nostalgic for multiple tanks to house and breed different species...

Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound...and zip ties, properly applied, can reduce the movement!

Thanks guys, you are the best!   ;)

Brrr...  just got back from a walk to the post office.  Just a bit chilly out there.  Rained a bit last night and the humidity with the cool temps cuts through you pretty good.  Still love my fall weather though.  Might be back out again this afternoon.
