Did you hear the one about a guy who gave away all his fish and supplies and moves to New Hampshire but then starts missing having some Betta around?

Yeah well... there isn't a punch line. Anyone miss me? Now I need some fish... Practically close enough to just drive to Al's and knock on his door, or pick fish out of his lawn on Culling Day!

Seriously, I gave away all my tanks, supplies, just cleaned it all out and for that matter, gave away or sold most of everything I owned. Recently single after 8 years, and just drove from Atlanta to New Hampshire in a Honda Civic with everything I own stuffed inside.

Strangely enough, the extra (estimated) 1,000 pounds - dropped my car down 2 inches and I got an additional +1 mile of gas mileage. I keep close track of it, and went from 38 to 39 miles a gallon. Strangely enough, the gas is cheaper here than it was in New Jersey.

Staying with some friends until I find a job and get on my feet again. Although I have a new recent love for Bonsai, I am now jonesing for some fish to keep... How has everyone been?

I was on a break when you sent me a PM about the male in my avatar so I know how it goes. Sorry I never responded. :(

Hopefully these silly fish suck you back in like the rest of us. ;)

Thanks for all the kind words! I really need it! :)

Now... who wants to sell me some fish? I have a few bucks in my PayPal currently, and hopefully soon some more (due to a company out of the blue buying some photographs from me - hopefully).

Went on a Sabatical drive up and down the coast and took some photos at Jekyll Island one morning. Posted them on FB and strangely enough, someone offered to buy some from me, so they want to purchase five photos. Would be nice... especially now!

And plants.

Just won this auction from Luvmybetta.com:

If I do start breeding again, this guy is not bad looking - not one darn bit (to me)!

No. I was looking at a marble green female from another importer, but he won't split up the pair he listed for a lower price if no one bids on them. Ack!
