It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.

    A colorful composition that goes well with Steinbeck’s quote!

    you keep him in a jar. This is the colour mine were. I couldn’t remember the name of the fish so I asked my son. He said the ones we had were called beta fish. For some reason I thought their name had something to do with fighting. Hmmm, the memory is a strange thing. Anyway. I’m quite taken with this image and it certainly has me wandering down memory lane or some similar trail.

    I’ve read that soldiers in Viet Nam would find these fish, fully grown, in the a puddle made by the hoof print of an ox. So it is not surprising that one would be happy in a Mason Jar. Nice shot, with nice lettering.

    I think Beta fish have to be kept alone or they will fight, but it seems a little sad. They are really pretty.

    How cute that you used the words from a children’s book. I like the point of view and rich color.

    John Steinbeck and Dr. Seuss come from the same mold, I’m sure, Sherri. 🙂
