Big Fish, Blue Fish & Go Fish


Big Fish
Blue Fish
It's the fish
That most agree
We like to see.

Big Fish
Gray Fish
It's a fish
That holds a key
Not in the sea.

Okay, so I'm no Dr. Seuss, but let me introduce you to Big Fish. He and a bunch of little fishes swish their way around the undersea world of the library aquarium.

Yes, we're back at the library...can't stay away, because as interesting as books may be, libraries are just SO not boring anymore! There are aquariums, computers, puppet shows, giant, lighted globes; summer arts and crafts, quilt shows, art shows, videos, how-to demonstrations, and uh, one more kind of fish!

Can you go fishing around the library and find it?
Hint! It is the opposite of Big Fish!

The commenter who reels in this fish first gets a prize!
Postcard? Brochure? Custom-written poem about the winner by me?
Don't like poetry?
Escargot from the Tally Ho? (Well, I guess not.) But, you choose the prize!
I will snail mail the postcard or brochure or email the poem.

Note: The picture was taken with my old 35 mm Pentax K1000.

Ho, I like this fish very much. I assume she is female. Looks to me like a very beautiful, expressive, elegant lady. And.... what a look!!!

Ha - nice pun from Riniroo!
I agree - libraries are changing with the times, some even have coffee shops now - can you even imagine how that would have gone down in the 70s!
Thanks for visiting my site & for your comments!

We have a winner!
Riniroo, you got it! For a while, I was afraid this riddle was just too difficult! But I knew a library patron would come by eventually and figure it out.
Thanks.

If you want a postcard or brochure, just email me at selmanow@gmail.com and let me know where to send it.
Same goes for a poem!

Thanks also to Ioanna and Chris in Madison for visiting.

Nice photo of a big fish. I suppose not good to eat. I wouldn't eat it anyway, but it seems like the bigger they are the more they are fished out.

Whales, Tuna, Porpoise. etc.

I have celebrated this day, Mother's Day in my country, with a magazine cover for my wife. I hope you can see it.

Oh.. and your Kuzu band was great too. Really enjoy your photos! Alabama... nice.
