Fish have healings, too

WHEN Lawrence, my nephew, went on holiday, he asked me to look after his fish, Coco and Chanel. His mum brought them to our home, set up the bowl and filter, and showed me how much food to give them each day.

The next morning when I went to feed them, they were hardly moving and didn't seem in very good shape at all. They didn't even want to eat. I telephoned a friend, who said, "Well if they aren't floating on the top, they're still alive." I didn't think that was helpful at all! I hardly wanted to tell Lawrence that his fish hadn't survived while he was away. That would have been a very unpleasant welcome home for him.
