      Another meeting that would have never happened...

      if Koiphen didn't exist!

      No camera's... But just a quick, "come on over and check out my yard, and then
      I'll come over
      and check out yours!" kind of afternoon...

      I met up with Ken (krury), who I only met through the powers of KP, and Jerry Hames, Pres. of
      Olympic Koi, Goldfish, & Water Garden Club, at Ken's house. And boy, Ken has an absolutely
      amazing backyard!! If you didn't know any better, you'd swear you were at any number
      of wild, natural, raging streams on the Olympic Peninsula! Truly a beautiful job! His pond and streams
      will be part of the upcoming pond tour that's part of the PNKCA Convention on Aug. 10th-12th.
      After some awesome brat's and asparagus that Ken cooked up for us, we ventured over to my place and
      we shared some more koi stories... and of course, I got to show off Stephen's babies!! And,
      as always, they were on their best behavior. My older pets, not so much... they were pretty shy,
      but did finally come out and say .

      But just wanted to add another real "face to face" meeting, that only happened because we had
      KP in common!

      Thanks to both Ken and Jerry for an awesome afternoon.

      So happy for you that you had a wonderful weekend with some wonderful folks. Shame on you for not showing up pics of what we missed. But we will forgive you this time. And glad yours and Stephens babies behaved.

      That is great, Steve. It's always wonderful to meet KP'ers.
      Sounds like you all had a wonderful time and a delicious meal.
      Still learning as I go but y'all can call me Marilyn

      I'll say something when I feel I have something worth saying. I'm not a fan of flapping my lips just because they are there.

      Mike My water just stayed all week in the low 60* and my filters just cycled for the year. Are you sure you would trade? I know Steve's must be doing the same.

      Steve I will ask Jerry at his house tomorrow (PNKCA convention planning commitee meeting) and back you up "If it happened"
