Do you know if there are loads of people going?

Hope you can still recognise some of them
It was a very small school, 68 in my graduating class! I knew everyone, I'm sure I'll recognize a lot of people, thanks to Facebook!

Well, since I can't sleep, I may as well have a good belly laugh. Thank you for starting my day on a good note.

i got up early this afternoon to get the turtle and goldfish tank cleaned. man, that thing stank! i never wanted a fish tank of any kind, but my damn neighbor came home with a tiny red eared slider (turtle) from chinatwon one day when she was babysitting and somehow my boy ended up with it. and every church fair we end up with another goldfish or pool comet which get huge from eating turtle food.

the dumb turtle is supposed to eat the goldfish, but since he was raised with them, they are his friends.

and i get to scrub a scummy tank every 6 or 8 weeks.

anyway, i'm back, back in the ny groooove. back at work, trying to decide what to get for dinner. probably chinese.

We had 4 red-eared sliders...yes named after the TMNT...they were the yuckiest beasts ever. By the time we got rid of them, they were the size of salad plates and lived in a 50 gallon tank. They got to move to a duck pond on a friend's piece of property.

How big is the tank? Have you thought of getting a Plecostomus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia? They look like tiny sharks and really keep the algae down.
