The Fish has a new home

Anyone who has ever lived in a house with children knows that hilarious events occur on an ongoing basis.  Some times, the authors of these tickle your funny bone events are caught in the act other times, events happen with  no one seeming to know how they took place or who was involved.  Some times I put on my Sherlock Holmes hat vowing to find the culprit but other times I just dissolve in the hilarity of the moment. The advantage of only having one child in the household narrows down the suspect list.  So on to the mystery.......

                                                       Fish belong in the pond

I have had a pond in my back yard for years.... I built the first one big enough for fish in 1995.  I have found the sounds and peaceful view renewing and a wonderful place to plan the day with a cup of coffee and wind down after a long day.  So imagine my surprise to discover one of my treasured koi out in the pasture in the horse water tank.

                                       Note to kids...... Fish do not belong in the horse water tank!

As these things happen, I was home alone.... so I had plenty of time to plan the inquiry.  As it turns out, he 'decided'  Cali was big enough to have a house of his own....     Not yet bucko!  After a quick arm numbing swirl around the water tank, Cali returned to his pond home.  Only in a house with kids!

Thought for the Day:

  1. Welcome to the world of blogging. Love the vintage travel trailer. What year is it? We are restoring a 1958 Airstream, though we haven't done much to it lately.

  2. It is a 72 although I don't know what kind it is....I do love her.... but so much needs to be done. Some day I would love to live full time and travel in a restored trailer. I am at a point in my life where, when things go wrong I think to myself... Head um up and move on out! Maybe someday!!

  3. I feel the exact same way. Full timing in an RV is something I'd love to do someday, too, but I've got to finish putting my boys through college before I do so.

    Vintage trailers are cool! It's best to tackle the job bit by bit, so it doesn't seem overwhelming.

    Good luck! BTW, we lived in WA state 10 years when I was in the service. Great memories.

  4. That fish is an explorer, even if an accidental explorer, as so many of us are!

  5. Cali is happily back home in the pond.... maybe dreaming and planning for future travels like me!

  6. Hilarious story. Maybe your fish is an 'adventurer' too!
