My Desk Buddies

Meet The New Guy.

This is Moon. (Okay, so it‘s not really him, but my camera isn’t working at the moment so this is as close to him as I can get. Will replace with his real photo as soon as I'm able.) He’s a young Double Ray (DR) Crowntail Betta and a real looker.

Meet The Old Guy.

Moon shares my writing desk (not a tank of course) with my two-year old Mystic Half-Moon Butterfly Betta (the name is longer than the darn fish!) named, of course, Mystic.

Pretty yes? You bet. But before you go rushing out to get a desk buddy Betta of your very own, please, please, please do your research. These fish are not ornaments, nor should they ever be used for our amusement or entertainment. They are living things, and to own one means to be responsible for it.

Respect all life. If not, please leave Bettas (and all future pets) to those who will respect them.

There are a million Betta sites out there, but I’ve found the following to be the most helpful:

Betta Cave
Betta Talk
Tropical Fish Forums
Betta House
Betta Groups

Yes, even I have roots. And now I'm going to trip over them while going down memory lane. In other words, this is my old home town of Portage La Prairie, Manitoba.


Author Note: My sincere apologies for posting the photos of my old home town. When sent to me I didn't realize they were not owned by the party who sent them. Therefore, they have been removed.

Again, my apologies.

Now you know I don’t usually recommend writing forums on The View, but this is one the exception. Introducing:—

Just a few of this forums super features include:

* An excellent and very approachable staff.
* Mad-skills-talented members from beginners to the published.
* Enough threads for writers of all walks, tastes and genres (including an Erotica thread which is age restricted and viewable by members only, and a *Secret Bonus Track* thread which is another members only thread similar to a Workshop—meaning first rights are protected in both Erotica and Bonus threads).
* A monthly newsletter.
* Seasonal Featured Work—the crème de la crème as chosen by the members in the categories of Poetry, Fiction, and Erotica).

If you write or are an avid reader and haven’t yet checked out LiteraryMary, I urge you to do so. And tell 'em I sent ya.
