New fishie

I got a new betta fish... it's actually a pretty funny story.

I told Chris I wasn't going to get any more fish for awhile since we're trying to find a new apartment still.

Well my dad didn't know that my brother had told me when Kiet (my betta fish) passed away. He didn't want me to get upset over another one of my pets dying, so he went out and bought me a replacement fish - thinking that I wouldn't notice that it was a diffrent fish. Ya know, like what parents on tv do when their 2 year old's goldfish dies, lol. Only I'm in my 20's instead of 2...AND... the new fish looks nothing like my old one. It's a completly diffrent color

I named the new fish Courage. I don't really know why, that name just poped into my head when I saw him.

Haha thats funny. Ya, sometimes its best to just play along! lol

Horses simply love running around.They enjoy flexing their muscles, arching their tails in the air, rising up powerfully on their hind legs, and then thundering off at full speed. In between the gallop strides they buck exuberantly and toss their heads joyfully. After repeating their show a couple of times, they pause for a moment to look around with widely flared nostrils, as if to ask: Has everyone seen us? Aren't we simply fantastic? We urge them to move again. They react on the spot, hooves flying with delight.
