At least (s)he got to The Promised Land

Jethro the Black Goldfish was pronounced dead today at 12:48 p.m. CST. Cause of death is undetermined, but is not believed to have been related to the ridiculously unseasonable snow shower earlier in the week. Place of death was the lovely new pond at Stately Reed Manor.

(S)he had just recently relocated there from her/his previous residence in the five-gallon Homer bucket (right) in the garage, to which (s)he was relocated after the Pond Formerly Known as Lovely was destroyed in a fit of remodeling fever.

(S)he is survived by her/his good friend (who may also have been her/his mother/father (or sister/brother)) Homer, as well as a host of new friends, the 17 recently relocated Brannan's Bass Shop evacuees.

When asked if (s)he would miss Jethro, Homer flipped her/his fin, and dove to the bottom of the pond.
