The continuation of the Gurgling Cod....

This morning it was cold and foggy...tonight it is cold and foggy but I digress. My DH and I got up early to hit the weekly boot sale in hopes of finally finding a gurgling cod for his co-worker. By the time we had walked down one aisle we were both frozen. It was getting colder instead of warmer as the sun came up (if it ever came up today?) So we split up with a plan to meet back at the donut van in 45 minutes. He went to the back of the parking lot to work backwards and I continued on my route. Within 5 minutes of his leaving - bamm - a medium green medium size cod! With that in my bag I then had 40 minutes to buy important things like buttons and an old singer gadget. When I got to the donut van there was my DH triumphantly waving a bag...he had a dark green medium size cod!!! We must have hit a school of them! Anyway, these end the search and hopefully meet all our "cod obligations." (if this totally confuses you see my post from about 2 weeks ago!)

I was trying to post photos but my blog connection isn't cooperating. More later!

How funny. No photos of the two green cods??

When it rains, it pours. Or should I say when the fish school, there are a lot of them.

How were the donuts?

Just like London buses - none for ages and then two come along at once!

I'm green with envy I've yet to get out and find me a gurgling cod. Congrats glad you found it.

Hilarious-- naturally, I had to go back two weeks worth to find out what a gurgling cod was! I, like you, thought it was one of those mounted, singing fish!! You hit the mother lode.

Dawn said...

So glad your cod trauma is over. I've been losing sleep over it - lol! What a funny tale this has been..

katelnorth said...

well, glad to hear it - goodness knows you don't need outstanding cod obligations (codligations? something...) and I was going to say what anne bebbs said about buses, but she beat me to it, drat her! :)

Jeanne said...

Thank goodness you found more green cods! Hope you can post a picture of them.

Oh, good! Does this mean you don't have to split up the off white pair that you love?

Enjoyed this story...especially after I caught up on the saga. I, too, thought those singing wall ones, but I like the real thing-I think!!
I have never seen them before, Tracey

Darned if I know what you're talking about--but it sounds like you had fun anyhow.

Marilyn R said...

Sounds like you had a great time and ended up with two cods in the end. I hope you can post pictures of them - I would love to see your whole collection!
