Monsoon season arrived in Connecticut today (who knew?), so outdoor photography was out of the question. Thus this photo of our goldfish, Inigo Montoya, who is, astoundingly, still alive. He reminds me of the goldfish in “The Cat in the Hat,” practically leaping from the water when I appear in the morning–he knows when breakfast is about to be served!
And because I am incapable of neglecting him, I am now facing the prospect of loading him in the car for the trip to Nantucket for our month-long stay, along with the dog (who has to be sedated for long car trips), four bicycles, countless bags, and lest I forget–at least a case of wine.
