One Fin-al Farewell

Sadly, Goldy was not long for this world... He was discovered belly up in his tank yesterday morning, thus driving a final nail into the coffin of our vacation-that-wasn't. We received the news with equanimity; gave it a few moments to sink in, and then promptly headed to Petsmart where, in the spirit of Goldy, we welcomed a new finned member to our family. His name is Lucy; and as Audrey said so eloquently during the car ride home, "We can't feed him too much, Mudder, be-cuz then he'll get dead and there will be no more Lucy!"

oh my word. That's so sad! Somehow you made the vacation look beautiful here, in spite of it all. Maybe Lucy will stick around a little longer....

Is it bad that I'm laughing right now? Life has jaded me! :)

not bad at all. the world around may crumble, but one's sense of humor should remain decidedly intact! hence my posting what is - to me - a simultaneously hysterical and creepy pic of aud through the glass. i resisted the impulse to title this post: "The Seeing Eye." if that isn't a vision enough to scare a fish to death i don't know what is!
