RIP Buzz...... I'll miss you

Buzz was my African Clawed frog that I got when he was just a baby and I got pretty attached to him over the years.
When I bought him he was supposed to be a dwarf frog... A month later he'd grown a bit and eaten his tankmate that I'd bought him. Turns out he would eat almost anything. He just kept growing and growing and eating and eating.
A few years later he was about the size of the palm of my hand. Then he ate my goldfish. They were about 2 times his size. The next 5 years he ate anything and everything I put in the tank with him. Even the aquarium ornaments were a target for him he broke all the cool ones and trashed the plants. So for the most part he had a 55 gallon tank to himself. Every couple weeks I would buy him 10 feeder fish and he would usually eat them or at least tear them apart within a couple days. Every now and then there would be a survivor but I think the longest he ever let one live was a bit over a month. I learned in a hurry not to get too attached to the fish.
The tank is now empty and I don't even want to look at it.
I'll have to decide what to do with it. Not totally sure if I want any other fish. Right now I just miss Buzz.

Oh the technology!

Well as an attempt to post more often I'm trying out posting via email. Hopefully this will keep me a bit more current on here. Fingers crossed!

My Favorites- 4 of 10

shiny things.

i think in a future life i was a bird.
this morning i was walking through the parking lot and accidentally kicked a little rock that was in my path. well when it rolled into the sunshine it was sparkly. needless to say i am now the proud owner of a shiny rock. just had to pick it up. its sitting in my car. maybe i should start up another rock collection.

this love of shiny things is not limited to rocks... but that was what caught my eye today.
lucky for my bank account. usually the shiny things i fall in love with are a bit pricier than a random rock on the ground.
