farewell, tiny friend
there is a gurgling fish tank in the sunroom now, with one lonely little crab* living in it. her name is margot, and until recently she lived in the environmental science classroom at the learning shack with her friend lobster (also a crab, not a lobster). zoë and max brought them home last week, and tragically, lobster died almost immediately. so there was a somber burial.
i have to admit, i hadn't formed much of an emotional attachment to this crustacean. her death wasn't like that of m. poisson, or the gerbil brothers. wow, we've had a few funerals in this back yard!
*i didn't even bother taking a picture. to be honest, she's not a photogenic pet.
