In Memoriam

In case you haven't heard, two of our family pets have --- well -- swum west if you will. Yes Snorkel (featured below) and Tex our two show fish are no longer with us.

The darnedest thing that they both died on the same day, and it just happened to be bath day. I guess it was the ultimate protest.
It was a bit surreal plucking Snorkel one last time from his jar -- he always hated being plucked, this was the first time I was able to get him right away. He was a pretty tough fish, one time he flopped out of his net to the tile floor four feet below; it didn't even seem to phase him. In his one final act of defiance somehow he managed to miss the commode during his disposal process -- yes he ended up behind the said porcelain fixture, oh Snorkel how we will miss you.
On to Tex -- I didn't have the relationship with him the Amy had, he spent all his time in the guest bedroom, and aside from bath day didn't get much attention. He too was remarkably easy to 'fish' out, but no protest for him -- he seemed happy to get the flush.

In other news Amy had her last baby shower yesterday. It was done via video conference, these are called 'Virtual Showers.' We had a lot of fun, it was neat to see the family; and lets not forget all the wonderful gifts which will be available for viewing on Claire's Blog in the VERY near future.

Happy Day After Easter!!! Yesterday Amy had a bit of a cough, so we decided to have Church at home -- evidently our church no longer streams live services (news to us) so we watched Victory's service out of Tulsa, OK -- they had a FANTASTIC production, and an excellent stream might I add -- we had no hiccups with the connection. It was kind of fun to watch church and search the crowd for old friends at the same time.

Fun times, I hope you all have a great day!!
