If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Thanks, Aunt Kimmie!!

I just love these guys. It's mostly the way they move that sucks me in, but they do have a real subtle beauty about them.

Did you see the latest suggestion - La Mancha? I'm really liking that, I think it's just overtaken Dottie.

If he seemed bossier, maybe Monarch. You know, the butterfly? I've also thought just Beauty, but it lacks character. Redford? He was awfully pretty in his day. Is there a more flambouyant pretty boy that might work?

I think Dottie is still in the lead.

He's being very stubborn and hiding somewhere. I'll work on the picture thing.


I was thinking more along the lines of your beautiful fish being a grazer, like cows.... grazing along the bottom... anyway it was just a suggestion. I like La Mancha better, or even La Muncha
