A couple of weeks ago (I think - time flies when you're having fun like this), I put an ad on Craigslist and found a taker for the goldfish in the little backyard pond, which is scheduled for removal this week. Shortly after the nice lady left with a baker's dozen of fish, I spotted two more who must have been hiding. Then we thought there might be three, but weren't sure.
Yesterday I managed to capture two more fish and stashed them in a bucket until the nice lady from Craigslist could come back and get them. The pond appeared to be empty at last.
This morning I looked out the back window and, yep, there are TWO MORE fish. One is now in a bucket - the other is a crafty, feral goldfish. I'll try to sneak up on him(her) later.
