I'm sorry to say Flash, the goldfish is no longer with us.



Our air conditioning on the first floor is not working at all, so with Saturdays temps hitting 92 degrees and Sunday temps in the high 80's that didn't help the temps inside the house or the fish tank either. The fish tank water seemed to be really hot and Flash, my largest goldfish couldn't take the temps in the water either, he passed away. Poor little Sparkles kept swimming around looking for his pal. I was afraid we might lose Sparkles too so I put some ice cubes in the water and that seemed to perk him up! I guess when the air conditioning is fixed and seems to be cooling the house down, I'll have to buy Sparkles another friend.

I'm sorry about Flash. We lost Kirby a few weeks ago.

I'm sorry about Flash, but I've been caught out by this too. You'll only do it once Sherri, the next time the air-con is off one of the first things you'll do is keep adding cool water or ice, trust me!

My son lost his very old fish this past week too! It was the last one and he'd had him since he was pretty young. I love the new look of your blog!
Hugs,

Hi Sherri, poor Flash. I didn't realize the water would get that warm.

Thanks for all the sympathy regarding Flash! I just feel bad because if I had thought about the water temp earlier I probably could have avoided this whole thing. I'm going to stop at Petsmart tonight and get a new goldfish. I won't be naming him Flash though. I'm sorry about all the others on here who lost fish recently too!

I'm so sorry about Flash. I think a new friend for Sparkles is definitely needed.

Btw, your garden looks beautiful :)

I'm so sorry to hear about Flash! I remember when you brought him home :(.

92! :0 it'll be months before it gets that hot here, I hope! :)

Perhaps you could get a small fish bowl and put sparkles in it until you get your air fixed or perhaps you've already gotten that done :)

Oh dear! I'm so sorry you lost Flash. I hope you can find another friend for Sparkles.


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
