Hi friends. I went to Walmart yesterday, and immediately sought out the infamous vfts that are sold for about 7 dollars US. I've heard they aren't well cared for. I can't imagine why. Most people I know actually believe you can feed them hamburger and small children. :lol:

Anyway, this is Wally. He was on a bottom shelf right in front of the front door. The temperature was in the high 30s. He wasn't getting any light either. His poor little pot was dry. However, given all that, he still looked okay. I welcomed him to the tribe and I think he looks better than my original vft.
