    How convenient when his vehicle breaks down the day before he was going to come visit and RDCL just HAPPENS to be going that way. She can give him a ride.

    Count again Lady! I bought maybe 3 dozen? fathead minnows and shiners to put in the pond this spring after digging it when it went dry last summer and rescuing the TWO still living small fish (kept in a bucket in the house all winter). A few weeks after putting the bait fish in the pond tiny fish were noticed, and more later and still more. I now have a hundred and fifty million fish in the pond! That might be an exaggeration but there are WAY more than a few dozen.

    Oh come on, with my luck?!?! o_O Y'all know it will be my truck breaking down going to see @babsbag and he would have to be the one to give me a ride.... :old And ... my truck doesn't have AC... we'd be a hot, sweaty, cranky mess by the time we got there if we were taking Dusty... not ideal for a first date! LOL!:lol:.... although... if he likes to rescue a damsel in distress.... I do tend to have ALOOOOTTT of those kinds of opportunities... and I'm sure I could come up with a damsel costume... I must have one somewhere around here!!!...:D =D

    As for the fish... I can only see whoever is near the top... but I can guestimate/count about 12-15 at any time before they swim around and some different ones surface. I know there must still be about 20 or so in each. I will have to wait to get a better count til I clean out the tanks. The fish are all growing well though, they are a lot bigger already.

    I just realized... my damsel costume is my everyday wear... no need to dress up to be rescued! (But I do clean up nicely if it would help! :old)

    Any man that would take a second look at a dirty sweaty damsel in distress and not run away FAST, might be worth checking out! LOL

    So, if I am aging backwards... does that mean I am turning 21 this birthday? :idunno Cause I could definitely use a 21st birthday redo. That was a birthday to remember for all the wrong reasons. I actually had a friend babysit my paparazzi (you know, the 4 short people that followed me everywhere, always, for like the following 20 years), so the guy I was married to and I, could go out for my first legal drink. He took me to the seediest, working mans bar in an industrial, scroungy part of town, away from anywhere nice. Not my cup of tea. We ended up having a really short, couple minute fight, and then he was so mad, he left me at the bar and went home to relieve the sitter. HE LEFT ME AT THE BAR! :somad No money, no phone, no ride, nothing. His response to the accusatory questions later was " I knew Wendy was going to pick you up." Yeah... but not until I was almost hit by a train and was being physically harassed by a homeless guy pawing at me as I was trying to walk home. It took my friend and I several minutes to shake the guy so we could get to her car to leave.

    I did leave the jerk home the next year and went out with my friends that made sure I was safe and I had a great time. They delivered me safely to my parents to sleep off all of my "fun"! ;)

    Anyhow... With my birthday actually coming up, if I wanted to buy myself a birthday present that happened to "mah", and was black with champagne spots and really stinky.... but OOOOHHH so handsome..... would @babsbag maybe be available to meet me in Nor Cal to retrieve whichever buck you wanted to borrow if I brought him along? The birthday present that I want, lives in Grass Valley. I am going to call grandma and see if she has room for me to stay, either of the next 2 weekends. Just thought that we might be able to combine the 2 errands if you had a free couple of hours.
