I wanted to introduce you to some new residents in the Miller household. We got them last Friday night for Family Friday Night, Yeah Family Friday night (Columbus people you can sing it with me--to the tune of Football Friday night). Anyway, I thought I should introduce them now before, well...you know what happens to fish.

Here are our fish--Tori named hers "Buckeye" and Isabelle named hers "Shakey" and then changed his name to "Bunny". They are Male Betta fish and we had a wonderful and informative worker named Kevin help us get them all set up.

It was Jamie's idea and the girls were actually squealing when we told them. I was not thrilled about the idea, because I am not interested in going down the slippery slope of pet ownership. I am just not a pet person...sorry. I am taking good care of the fish...at least I am trying to take good care of the fish.

Buckeye ROCKS! And Shaky/Bunny is pretty cool too. I don't think you can kill Beta fish, gretch. I mean it is virtually impossible to kill them. At least I think so. I am right there with you on the pets. It makes me feel a little squemish to think of all that hair and slobber all over the house. I have to say the boys are wearing me down about it though. So, we'll see. Our Hermit crab has been alive since last summer at the beach. Can you believe that? Love, Becky

Yeah, I think beta fish are much more sturdy than the 5 cent goldfish that kick pretty quick. Aah the good old days of hitting up Petco for dozens of goldfish awana carnival prizes! Did I make that trip with you? I was actually thinking of getting the kids fish after Christmas but I forgot about it. Maybe I'll spring for Easter...
I love that they squealed with excitement.

Our fish has been alive for 5 months and we won it at a game in the grand Circleville Pumpkin Show. Buckeye, at least, should be a fighter.
