Talkin' About Fish

A friend of mine blogged about her two boys fish the other day.
Beta fish. One purple and blue, the other blue and red. Beautiful creatures. Not very nice personalities when they have to associate with their kind, but still, a person can't ask for everything, can they?

At the end of her blog, she asked for suggestions for names for the little beauties. Her boys had yet to come up with some.

Here's my suggestions:
Betas are beautiful, kingly fish. Gorgeous colors. Swirling, graceful fins. Easy to look at and enjoy. So . . .

I suggested using Britain's princes' names: William (or Willie, Wills, Billy, etc.) and Harry (or some variation).

Cool, huh?

I love names, love coming up with them for my characters. But I'll blog about that later.

Here's another cool thing about fish. They're totally delicious to eat. Not betas. Laugh.

But catfish, the salt and pepper variety, deep fried, along with corn sticks, baked potatoes and slaw. Yum. A feast fit for a king. AND, I got to enjoy that fish meal, thanks to good friends in Virginia. (Virginia does claim many people there who are wonderful hosts!)

Wanna here a fish story?
Sorry, don't have one right now, unless I'd stretch the truth a little and tell you I'm a New York Times Bestselling author.

Quit your laughing! I may make it some day. Smile

You are making me hungry for fish, of course at our favorite place Rocky Mount. Keep up your good writings.
