Last minute idea yesterday we decide to go to my favorite LFS. It is a little over an hour from me and I have been doing business with them since they started in a back yard fish house. The dad, who has now passed away, really taught me a lot and helped me a lot along the way when I started really learning about this hobby. Now back to the story. We get there and they have changed their hours OH NO I think I only have 30 minutes to look around I thought I would have at least an hour and a half. So we go in ready to check everything out as fast as possible. OMG what happened to this place they hardly had anything. No angels, a few baby convicts, all kinds of fancy goldfish and koi, some livebearers, some sickly looking snails, and some huge frogs. So my excitement had built for over an hour in getting there and just dreaming of all the goodies I would see and want and who knows what I would bring home. It did not even take 30 minutes and the shopping was over,nothing I wanted, very dissapointed. Yes they did have many tanks and loads of foods and equipment but that is not what I wanted to see. So we go on to get a bite to eat and stop in at a Chinese place we both like. Once we start eating we got to talking about the fish store. We had both given each other looks while in the store but neither of us said anything. Finally Tommy says it...."Well I know your dissappointed". Understatement does not begin to cover that one. Then what does he have to say "It's bad when you have more fish and a bigger selection than your favorite fish store". After that I think we laughed all the way through our meal and all the way home. So I came home and really had a new appreciation for my babies. I am going to give the owner a call on Monday to see if he wants some babies that I have just so he will have a little bigger selection. I won't be trading them for fish but hey we can always use fish food around here.
