I am not sure that this is right for the blog section but at least it's not dismal poetry!!
Some time ago I posted a blog on my experiences of breeding pet rocks. I had lots of comments sent and yes, I did find a good therapist from all the recommendations. And the medication helped.
I am a new person now and all the childish ideas are behind me. I will admit to looking at rockeries with a certain whimsy. But as I said, like the little pig, I have been cured! (I did build a rockery last autumn but I ignored it during the winter and when I checked it in the spring three of the rocks were dead!)
I have now moved on to something much more worthwhile.
Over the last year I have sent a black spot out to anyone who has annoyed me. It's just as well that I had a large stock!
Anyway..........It has occurred to me that instead of buying them I could breed my own.
I have a mating pair but so far there has been no result. They do seem to know what to do.
Does anyone know the sexual habits of black spots? What is the gestation period? How old should they be before they leave their mother? Which one is the mother for that matter?
I have just seen a posting on a previous blog. I feel that I should apologise to any humourless people who believe that these spots are real. They are not. They are just pixels on your screen and can be safely ignored! Or try the delete key! You will come to no harm! Alternatively....GET A SENSE OF HUMOUR!
