meet our new addition to the family:
yep, the boy won a carnival fish:
thank goodness petsmart was open on a holiday so we could buy this:
for $30 ($5 for the fish, $25 for the tank et al), this fish better not die.
hubby and i won a carnival fish when we first got married. it died after 3 days. we replaced it with 2 fish from walmart. they promptly went to the big fish pond in the sky too.
when i was 6 i won a fish at a firemen's carnival. i was so excited to have my first pet, and promptly bought a bowl and neon castle at newberry's in hazleton. 2 days later it died. we buried it in a matchbox behind my gram's rhododendron bush, and when i visited the grave the next day it was dug up. i guess fishy made a fine meal for a neighborhood kitteh.
so far it's been a week, and wiggles is doing fine.
