Fish and the Feline: Sundays in My City

UnknownMami plays hostess to a scenic blogger party on Sundays. Check out her site here to view beautiful photos taken throughout this wonderfully small blog world.

Just a photogenic fish tank in a Chico-based office. Can you find Nemo?     -photos by me, 11/11

Poor Mojo - sandwiched between fish, but still looking out for some grub.

 Same fish tank. Nemo swam away, and this orange-purple one's going into hiding.


Dear friends, I'm hoping you haven't noticed I'm scaling down a bit on my blogging. I'm not going away. I'm just sad to not have participated in this week's Saturday Centus. I wish I could do it all. Alas, I cannot. I know you understand and thank you for that.

Have a great Sunday and new week!

  1. No one can do it all as much as we may like to. I was busy all week and haven't posted a single thing. Life happens. We understand. I like the pictures.

  5. I found Nemo. Right next to Waldo.
    Like Ruth said, you can't do it (by "it", I mean "write") as much as you like.
    I'll be scaling down somewhat with the coming new year myself. I really need to devote more attention to my book. It has the potential (however slight) of being published, so I guess I should.

  6. I amazed that orange thing is alive. I wouldn't want to meet it in a dark pool if I were a fish.

  13. Love Mojo's silhouette. What a cutie. As for blogging, we all have to keep reminding ourselves that blogs are for our own writing and reading enjoyment. There's no obligations, no ties and no one's going to sack us if we don't post up. Having said that, I would miss your wit if you went away.

  14. Robyn,

    Believe me, backing off can be freeing! We will all be here and waiting for every post. Take your time- it really helped me to take a small break!

    Love you sweet friend!

  18. You're the best and sweetest followers in this blogiverse. I'm good - just lots of work plus non-blog writing going on. Anyway, thank you!

    Since Finding Nemo hit the big screen, every tiger fish in the world must be sick and tired of being called Nemo! At least it's not a bad name. That tank has a Dori too. I'll try to photograph her next time.

    Have a wonderful new week.

  22. Love the aquarium! Don't worry about scaling back your blogging - it happens to all of us.

  26. Robyn, your sweet, generous, thoughtful posts are a treat whenever they appear. Do them your way--it's been working beautifully so far! :^)

  27. And "Nemo" spelled backwards is "Omen." I'm not sure whether that has theological or ichthyological implications. I'm just putting it out there.
    And making a huge donation to my church.

  28. While there's time.
    Because, when they find Omen, there'll be hell to pay.

  30. Al, ichthylogical spelled backwards is lacigolyhthcti. And why the heck and I telling you this? I mean, I'm sure you've figured that out already.

    I love you all. Thanks.

  31. I understand! It takes a lot of time. Post when you can, stop by when you can and we'll see you then! Real life has to come first...
    If you totally stopped, I'd miss the heck out of you though!

  32. Love those pics. Everyone seems to be scaling back on blogging, so don't worry. Your followers will still be here when you do blog.

  33. Fish nerd here. That purple/yellow fish is called a Royal Gramma. (I used to own one...I called him Prince George.)

    Not even kidding. :)
