      Koiphriends of the Northwest

      Without Koiphen, some of these people would never have met. Thanks Stephen!

      Here's my father-in-law, all the way from Scotland via South Africa, with Cassie and Jeff our friends and Bill Putnam, a local pond supplier (and friend).

      And new friends from Portland, Oregon; nwrunner (Rob) with Halle, Robin, my mother-in-law Rosemary and Rob's wife Peggy.

      Then the trouble makers; ICU2, Rose and Monty. I say trouble makers because they trashed the place! I had to revert to the before pictures to show you the rest of the yard!!!

      Okay, not really, but I didn't get any other pictures and there were more northwest ponders on the day. Monty took some pictures so hopefully when he gets a chance he can fill in some blanks. Monty??

      David Jensen and wife Donna. Brian (Razzyb) and wife Sarah... Who'd I forget? (maybe I trashed the place, I can't remember!!!)

      So that's what it looked like before we started throwing Corona bottles for the fish to play with!!

      It was great meeting new KP'ers, and thanks to Rose and Steve for an awesome party!

      Thanks, Ya'll. Yes, us Koipheners are the party bunch! Coast to coast.

      I hope Monty get's in gear and adds his pics to the thread. I didn't get the Razzy's or Jensens, I think he did.

      Ouch! Some of us Do have lives. It is fun to let our hair down once in awhile.

      Any body know how my car seat got wet? Sorry about scarring the fish.

      Since there seems to be such a rush on this the names will have grouped.

      RazzyB. NW Runner, ICU2, Bill Putman, David Jensen and the original trouble maker Pond, James_Pond. The rest are innocent and shall not be named by me (yes, I think I remember them). Of course you all know me and names.

      Thanks again Steve and Rose for having us all once again.
