Another Task Done by Susan L.

  Since there was such a heavy frost the last couple of days, it was time to bring the fish in from their pond summer quarters. It's later than usual because of the demands on my time over the last couple of weeks. There was an advantage: fish don't move fast when they are cold so it was an easy catch. It only took a half hour to bring them up to room temperature by placing the pail of fish into a sink full of warm water. It was surprising how frisky they got once warmed.
  I'm not quite sure what Pumpkin thinks of the big ones although it didn't stop him resting on one of his favorite perches just to check things out. This picture and question were posted on Facebook last night and my son's response was: "conflicted".
  It`s a good thing Pumpkin didn't try to get up there when the lid was off. That would have made a bit of a mess, having a wet cat tear through the house. I could have done nothing but laugh helplessly at him. Wouldn't that wound his feline pride!
  What`s that old saying...Laugh at yourself and the world laughs with you, laugh at someone and you laugh alone.
  ``Behold, God will not cast away the blameless, nor will He uphold the evildoers. He will yet fill your mouth with laughing, and your lips with rejoicing. Those who hate you will be clothed with shame, and the dwelling place of the wicked will come to nothing.`` Job 8:20-21
