Kathy,  You are making this so fun and silly.

Ladies, I have sent each of you a secret communique concerning next month's Impossible Mission.  Please keep this information to yourself, as we don't want this information to be leaking out.  There may be moles lurking in our group and this mission could be in jeopardy.  You will receive further instructions on Sunday night.

Riana, I should have guessed! I know you live just about half your life in Florida.

Comment by Riana Noyes on Sunday

No, Barbara,we go to Florida ... they seem fine in winter with the bubbler on and lots of tree leaves sink to bottom for food. In fact, once they were established, we've never fed them...they look after themselves with what nature provides. The little waterfall fountain adds oxygen to water in summer ( and it's nice to listen to from deck.

Really cool, Riana. I don't think a cuddle toy will work!! ha ha! My son had an aquarium in his apartment and would sit and stare at his tank. Some times he would get extra fish he wasn't expecting but they must have been so tiny they didn't show up till they grew some.  Do you have to bring them in the house in the winter?

Comment by Wilma Schirra-Kays on Sunday

Looks very peaceful.  My sister has a pond with Koi and it is fun to watch them. 

Comment by Riana Noyes on Sunday

Here are some of our large goldfish...there are more hidden beneath plants. They need to have shelter from raccoons and other predators. There are frogs too, but not considered " pets".

Decided to work on some boxes/containers for my Monday Featherweight meeting.  Hope to finish 3 more samples....maybe one will find its way into my SSS box.

Awe, Mary, those pantry thieves are too sweet- looking to get mad at,lol.Our cat Jake soon learned how to open the " treat cupboard" in the rv...he was supposed to be on a special diet for his sensitive tummy...treats were for our older cat to encourage her to move around a bit.

The  90 lb retriever in back is three-legged Ridge, who got around well for an additional 5 years after his surgery.  Rollo, a malamute was 15 when a neighbor kidnapped him from an abusive owner and took him to the county shelter...he would have had to stay there until all the paperwork was done before he could be adopted.  The sheriff suggested the shelter lose him.  So he lived in hiding with us for about six months when old age got him.  You can see the two were too smart for us and got into the pantry for the dog bones. He also gained about 25 needed lbs while he was with us.
