Farewell Max

Well, my granddaughter's fish Max died today. He lived, with us, 5 days. She had some tears, she had taken good care of him. She fed him on schedule each day making sure not to give him too much. She sat next to his bowl and talked to him each day. I'm sure she will want to bury him next to Dorothy.

Tomorrow we are going to the Orange County Fair. That is where she won the original Dorothy 7 years ago. She wants to win another fish to replace Dorothy and Max. If she wins a fish, I sure hope it lives longer than 5 days. We had good luck with both Dorothys, one lived 3 years (due to no fault of her own) and the next lived 4 years. I'll keep you posted.
