Popeye


Art: Popeye by Artist Rita C. Ford
One summer when I was a child, about seven or eight years old, my mom and brother built a goldfish pond in our back yard. After it was complete, mom ordered twelve special goldfish to stock it. One of the fish she ordered was a moor. All of the goldfish in the pond were beautiful, but by far the moor was the most unusual fish we had ever seen. For one thing he had these great big bulging eyes and a beautiful fan tail. Obviously we called him Popeye (as in Popeye the sailor man) because of his great big eyes. Popeye didn't make it past that first year, but he was something that as kids we loved to show off to our friends.
