I Love Fishes...!

Hi there! It's been a while (again) but at least this time I've got about 5 new posts all set up and ready to go! (And creating more will give me an excellent excuse to procrastinate packing up to move (again)!) I'm starting with a backlog of requests. This is a request that I got years ago from my brother - Fish. Except I couldn't do it because at the time I didn't have enough fish pictures to make a whole post! :( But now I do!

Yay! What's a fish's favorite sport? Squidditch!

What's Your Cup of Tea?

Apparently January was Hot Tea Month! And I missed it...

Seems I've missed a lot but I'm back now! Yay! Also a General Disclaimer: I don't list the sources for the photos that I post because I started gathering them to my computer many many years before I even knew what a blog was, let alone that I would ever have one. SO - if I post a photo that is yours, let me know and I will be glad to give credit where credit is due! Alternately, I will remove a photo upon request.

That out of the way, let's get cozy and take a sip!

(P.S.: The new Tea Pot Count in my house - 20!!!)
