I know it's Wednesday, and I know I haven't blogged since last Friday, but nothing happens in November. If something is happening in your November and it's keeping pace with other months, something is wrong.
Anyway, one thing did happen on Friday. I went to put Monster out. There are two buckets filled with rain water on the back deck. My mister emptied the big rain barrels and put them away for the season but saved some for backyard fires. As I was hooking Monster to his lead, a movement in one of the buckets caught my eye. Holy shit, a fish! Apparently one of our tiny rain barrel koi went out the spout and into a bucket unnoticed. This fish is less than an inch long so you can imagine how easy it'd be for him to go unnoticed and ultimately freeze to death in the bucket. Instead, we saved him.
First we had to acclimate him to indoor temperatures. The following morning, my mister moved him to his winter home with his friends.
