Jim Davies + Goldfish

    let me explain…..
    the fish needed to move house, for his old fishtank was in need of renovation..
    as goldfish have a limited lifespan in plastic bags, their usual means of transportation, it seemed logical, if not essential, to hire a particularly fast mover for the job. hence the choice of a fellrunner, who, needless to say, will always know and take the fastest route from one place to another…..
