ViL: Staying the Course

We just lost Larry the Fish, within a few days of Darrell & Darrell. He wasn't seen yesterday and today at feeding time there was just Darrell & Smokey.

This is no time to be disheartened. Darrell & Smokey remain resilient and look forward to peace and stability in the fish pond. Comments from certain parties like "Omigod they're killing them off one by one, Oh well I'm tired of the pond" give aid and succour to our enemies. This is no time to cut and run.

Update: I just saw Larry, safe and well. The Vol points out that this proves the naysayers wrong.

Not to be a downer, but have you thought about trolling for bodies. If Larry were late for feeding,it might be a sign that something is amiss in your pond and it might not be fish.

Who is tending to housekeeping the pond? Is it you, or that woman I trained so well? (Remember she is a good cook and a delight to be around.)VMil

I believe Larry was late for feeding because he spends his time in the secure "Green Zone" beneath the pond weed, helping lead the democratically constituted coalition government of the fish pond. Only when he sees Daryl & Smokey feeding without incident does he occasionally nip out, grab a bite, and then swiftly return to his important deliberations in the Green Zone.

Larry is one smart fish.

Goof- I'm glad Larry is among the living. I's been like Ten Little Fishes.
