seating is limited

Are goldfish pets?
Sure, but I like to think instead that ours are part of a watery exhibit, like the Belugas at the Vancouver Aquarium only smaller?

We have three goldfish preforming daily in our oak rain barrel outside.
I'm sure they were influenced by the zest and humor of their first trainer, my father. They have certainly flourished.
All three goldfish perform 'round the clock, drifting down deep into the murky darkness of the barrel and zooming up into the light.
They skim along the surface and smack their lips loudly. They splash and dive and circle.

They were nothing more than orange and white apostrophes when they arrived but they've grown into great, glistening goldfish.
Admission is free but seating is limited.
