This little sweetie is almost as cute as Mary Grace. Anyone who has kids or fish will smile, but it's especially sweet if you have kids and fish like we do. Maybe next time one of them dies, we need to have a funeral, instead of just saying, "Oh look, the fish is swimming upside down! Let's go read a book!" and distracting while Daddy quietly disposes of the remains. I mean, maybe we're missing a teachable moment, here. What do you think?
Also, are there any gardeners in the house? Can I prune our overgrown burning bush this spring, or do I need to wait until fall. I'd hate to kill it, but the thing's huge. Is there any particular method, or do I just cut it back until it's a more manageable size? Our tree management system around here has been more of a "slash and burn" philosophy, so thanks!!
