Salt Water Aquarium

Well, here's our exciting news for the month!
We had a salt water aquarium years ago and have been
missing it ever since!  We felt like the time was right
to investigate getting a new one and after months of
looking and waiting, it is finally here!

This alcove in our living room has always been a strange
spot and it has housed everything from a tv to a china 
cabinet over the years.  When we found someone who
would custom design and make a tank....and come back
for monthly maintenance at a very reasonable price,
well...that was just too good to be true!

He started us off with these four fish....two Cinnamon Clowns,

A yellow tailed blue damsel...

And a Kole Tang.

It holds 126 gallons and has been really fun!
I have the perfect view from my spot on the living
room couch.  Very relaxing.  And yes, the cats are
mesmerized!  Cat TV as someone said. ha.

Mr and Mrs Kravitz

Abner and Gladys Kravitz
from Bewitched.

The Mister and I are guilty of looking out our windows
and snooping at the neighbors.  Yes, we would admit it!
And if we catch each other looking, we will call each other
a 'Kravitz'. haha.  But in our defense, a few of our neighbors
are just too darn entertaining not to take notice!
I thought you'd get a laugh out of a conversation we had 
this weekend....

  • The Mister ~ Come here and look at the outside lights the new neighbors are putting up.
  • Me ~ Oh my.  I don't like those.  They are way too small for the house!  Is that the wife?
  • The Mister ~ Yes.  The kids were out earlier.
  • Me ~ Is she pregnant?
  • The Mister ~ hmmm...certainly looks that way.  But their kids are middle school age.
  • Me ~ Could have been a surprise!
  • The Mister ~ I don't know.  Maybe she just has a big gut.
  • Me ~ Wait til she turns around.  Oh, I think she's pregnant!
  • The Mister ~ We need to go over and introduce ourselves soon.
  • Me ~ Yes.  I'll bake something to take over.
  • The Mister ~ Sounds good.
  • Me ~ Whatever you do, don't ask when she's due.  Because it will be really awkward forever and ever if she says she's not pregnant!

one must have sunshine, freedom,
and a little flower!"
