Goldfish Survive Tappan Winter News At Eleven

  I long ago gave up trying to keep koi in the small pond in front of our screened porch.  After the latest bunch died off one winter, I bought about a dozen goldfish for about two dollars, and threw them in. After three years, seven still are going strong.  I don't test the water or filter it, and rarely feed them.  They seem to thrive on neglect, and that's what I'm going to continue to do.  The azelia opposite was brought from my wife's house on Staten Island about forty years ago, and it was old back then.  The bench was given to me by the owners of a house that I sold in Tappan.  I love to sit on it and just watch the goldfish do their thing.
