    Trying Not to Fiddle

    I love ornamental goldfish, and even used to sell them years ago. I would hunt up the most beautiful from the wholesalers, and really got to appreciate all the different types and 'designs'.

    So I thought I have a crack at some. First one I messed around too much and got bogged down in detail, so thought I would just loosen up a bit. Here's my first effort. I think I might go back in and put some more fish together in a group.

    Everybody sing. . .

    What an interesting head they have. Beautiful fish. Tropical fish were just made to be painted.

    He's actually a High Head Oranda, and goldfish are in fact cold water fish. They are so quaint.

    He does look like he's got a gob of chewing gum on his head!! I never thought of it that way. :0)

    Oh, lad, you betcha. . . although I did hear it on the radio. But the most surprising performance was a lass named Patty S. in me 6th grade class who performed it solo adding a "squeak squeak" as she pinched her throat after "but you swallowed it in spite". I thought "Golly! That's creative license!" Blew me horizons wide open thereafter and I set off to learn Casey at the Bat which I performed in 6th grade "to the wonderment of all".

    Just to share with the youngsters like Copespeak, heh? Limey-G, you yourself may enjoy another listen to it yourself. Surprisingly good recording for youtube. Jolly good fun!

    We used to sing that song all the time when it was popular, and it still gets a run every now and again.
