I did get the
pond done enough tonight! Yeah! The fish and plants are
back in there....so
that is a big relief. We counted 34 as we put them
back in (although I kept
saying that is still too many in there!).

  
I owe alot to my friend Pat.
Without her helping me every night this
week, I would not have gotten it done.
John seen a snake and that was
it... he headed for the house and I won't get
him out there for months
again....and it was only a gardener snake trying to
eat a frog... geesh.
(I did save the frog tho and I think it freaked him out)

neglect your own health trying to do everything for
