Each year, in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, we hold a blessing of the animals at Bethany. Heaven knows any pet of mine could use all the help they can get to survive living with me, so, I brought my 2 beta fish to the blessing. Yes. My 2 beta fish. In the car. From Castle Rock to church. 22 miles there, 22 miles back. Poor things better live forever, for as much sloshing as I put them through!
