Good morning everyone!!!!

Good morning, I got over the hump last night. Moved all the live stock and tore down the 75 gallon. The best part is the hardwood floors passed the wife test. Now I have to clean all that stuff and post it. Who needs a 75g system?
Need..... Yep I need another system. Tell my wife.

Good morning.
Sitting in the basement with the dags, cats and fish drinking my coffee.
Phone is already ringing. Jill's brothers about their mom. Her family is a train wreck. They need to pull together and don't know how.
My wife's family is just the same. I have thrown the option out there to move to Europe and not tell them.

I like that monti.

Good morning.
I learned something yesterday. Dogs that haven't seen each other in months go "Hey lets play".
Cats that havent seen each other in weeks scream "Get away from me. Hiss hiss".

My cat isn't the problem. He thinks he is a dog.

Great Morning
We just got back from Connecticut for a couple of days in a B&B for our 46th (I think) anniversary.

It poured the entire time. :(

We took the ferry there and it was fairly calm. As I looked over the side at the sea, I saw this large fin slicing through the water. I have been out there in the middle of the Long Island Sound many times but I never saw a large shark there.

I know a few weeks ago they reported a 12' Great White Shark there so I figured it was one of those.
Then as we got closer I saw a Sea Gull land right in front of it. I figured the gull was going to be a small lunch for the shark. ;Wideyed

Then I noticed the fin bending from side to side and I know shark fins don't do that as they are made out of aluminum and are very stiff.

All of a sudden this huge fish jumps completely out of the water and slaps down again. It was maybe 4' or 5' long and almost as high.

It was an Ocean Sunfish or Mola Mola.
It jumped three or four times and after every jump it would lay on it's side at the surface and the sea gull would stand on it and eat parasites off it's sides.

Our boat was moving pretty fast so I could only see this for about 30 seconds but it made my day.
I have only seen an ocean sunfish once or twice before but that was far out to sea. This was about 8 miles out.
Sunfish are the largest bony fish and can reach over 2,000 lbs. or as much as some of my old girlfriends. :p

Very cool.

Coming home it was so windy that they cancelled our ferry due to high winds and rain. I think the Captain noticed there were some Sissy, Girly Men Snowflakes on line and figured they would get the horrors and croak.
This ferry is a big boat holding maybe 100 or more cars.

We drove for an hour to Bridgeport Conn. and got a different ferry to Long Island so we didn't do to bad.
