Muscles the Fish 8/04- 8/15/05

I am sad to inform you that Muscles floated away today sometime between 11:05am and 12:10pm. A one year resident of Ventura, CA, he was purchased at the Ventura County Fair last year and came to live with us. He almost died but he faught back and survived another year. Muscles died from complications of Fin Rot. He is survived by his friends/next of fin: Ma, Mr.Clean, and Champagne (a.k.a. Goldilocks). He was proceeded in death by Pa and the Temptations.
Muscles was a good fish and a good pet. He was an inspiration and swam life to the fullest.
A memorial service has been planned tonight in our bathroom at approx. 10:00 pm. Internment will be at the Ventura County Sewage Treatment Plant.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the "We Want Another Fish" Fund.

Levi was so devistated by the news that he slept all afternoon. Oh wait he does that anyway.

Unfortunately we will not be able to attend the sad gathering, but will in his honor fly our flag half mast and have a moment of silent mediatation from 10:00 to 10:01. May he rest in peace. (Goldilocks didn't knock him off did she?)

We are sad for your family. Just last week you mentioned Muscles at our "creative" gathering. New fish?

It's a little soon to be thinking of a new fish, don't you think? Let your heart heal. Don't just plunge into a new relationship while you're still on the mend. You're really not thinking clearly and you might make a mistake you will regret later.

Well how was the service? I'm sorry we missed it.

Sad. Randy and I went all out. We took pictures we will share to all those who could not make it to the funeral.
