and then there were eight...
the rites of passage...

and now there are nine...

little fishies swimming in the pond. very strange! this morning, i took little Sparky out to go potty and as is my habit, i started counting the fish in the pond and there was an extra one. only this one didn't look quite like the other ones. it was skinnier and about half the size of the others. it looked like a baby fish but upon looking closer, i saw it had whiskers! the catfish is alive and well! i couldn't even believe it...i counted several times and watched the little catfish suck algae off the rocks...yep, that's a light colored catfish. pretty cool! i instant mesaged Lyle and asked what color his catfish was and it seems to be the same one or else we have someone in the neighborhood that is adding fish to our pond. unfortunately, i was not able to get a picture of the catfish, he didn't stay out all that long before he went back into the rocks. i'm sure that the colder weather has something to do with the fish coming out of hiding. i'm going to keep watching and maybe i will see him/her again and i will try to have my camera at the ready!

may joy and innocence prevail!
