      Amazing documentation Max!
      Pics from the lower pond are my favorites.
      And Phil Balshi shots were beautiful.

      Thanks, Steve!!!
      Phil has a feeling for the koi as art. He's planning another show in Carmel, Ca.
      His website is Philbalshi.com
      Thanks for the tech intervention. ,

      I blinked, and you went from some nutty lady that had no idea of what she was trying to do and how difficult (impossible) it would be to accomplish such a thing to someone that must have every koi breeder's respect.
      You did an amazing thing; creating a fish you envisioned. And some of the healthiest fish I have seen. And since you are what you do..you must be amazing.
      I didn't think you could do it. I didn't think ANY hobbyist could do it. And you had so much sht happen especially with the ponds not holding water...And it has been so many years. And you kept going, and making progress...
      You are still a NUT for even trying.

      Luke, thank you very much. Your words mean a lot to me and I'm taking them to heart.
      It took a village; John Clark taking the culls made it possible, the bulldozer men and ground crew at the pulls and having my koiphen friends to see the pictures and support this effort motivated me during those hard times.
      for being straight with me and sticking with my project all these years.

      Max

      P.S. I had a koiphen mentor who was also a Nut trying to breed Ki Kumonryu, the Golden Dragon, in Australia where you can't just go online and get the fish you need. Bindi borrowed fish, used wild carp, and came close to her dream when her oyagoi passed. I haven't heard from Bindi in about three years, but I hope she's well and happy. One of the last things she told me was that when I have my F3 spawn, "You'll have ki shusui coming out of your ears."
      An unforgettable image and F3 is still in the planning stage. Sorry I can't show her where we are at F2.
