For we humans those age milestones of 21, 30, 40, 50, 60, etc, all the way up to 100 are all special occasions... and one of the most endearing little people we know, our outdoor water bowl's resident goldfish, Paul, has clocked up his own biggie: he's five years old. Happy Birthday Paul! As you can see in the photo below, he pigged out on extra goldfish flakes that day.
|Having a name drawn from music legend, it probably comes|
as no surprise to discover that Paul can sing. Here he is
belting out "Back in the USSR" on one of his rowdy days.
|And Paul has even been immortalised in a painting by|
Pam (this was part of her '31 Days' exhibition this year,
at Gallery Red in Leichhardt). It's beautiful, Pammy.
