Fish Patty and the Chili Judge

Today Hubby and I went to Cabela's shopping.  We had never been and it is quite a distance from our house, but we decided to go check it out.  When we got there they were having a Chili Cook-Off in the parking lot to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.  We didn't stop to check it out because we were going to have lunch with hubby's sister and we didn't want to dilly dally.  When we were finishing our shopping, his sister texted and said she wasn't able to make lunch after all.  So, on the way out of the store, one of the guys from the chili cook off grabbed hubby and asked him to be one of the judges.  We didn't have plans, so he decided to participate.  Twenty-two chili samples later and we were back on our way home.  He had fun and the people there were really nice.  I am glad it was him and not me because he has a much stronger stomach.

On the way home, we stopped at Petco to pick up some glucosamine for the dogs and instead of buying their stuff, we pick up a new member of the family instead.  We purchased a female blue fantail Betta.  Her name will be Fish Patty.  We have noticed that our male Betta, Fish Stick, is making bubbles and that is supposed to mean they are ready for a partner.  We are leaving them in separate containers tonight and so far they have been checking each other out.  No one is puffing up like they want to fight, so that is a good sign.
