      Fire, and KOI USA back issues.

      I was a member here a number of years ago. I built the “Glass Block Pond” you can find online. Lost the pond and everything else in the 2017 Thomas Fire in Ventura California. My house has finally been rebuilt. Back yard is still just dirt, not sure if I’ll be able to replace the pond. So I’m here looking for back issues of KOI USA magazine where I had written two articles. I lost my copies in the fire and have yet to find any on eBay or elsewhere. What I’d like is at least a good scan or photo of the magazine cover and the first page of my articles, although entire issues of the magazine would be nice but I could do with just the cover and first page images. The copies I seek are 2006 Vol 30 Issue 4C, that one has my glass block pond article, and 2007 Vol 31 Issue 4C which has a short somewhat humorous article about a local restaurant named Koi Sushi. I don’t know what “issue 4C” translates to in publication month. BTW, I had fortunately sold my Koi before the fire so did not lose them in the disaster, just lost a lot of water lilies. The radiant heat from the burning house actually cracked the glass block and melted the glass block plastic spacers embedded in the grout. The pump, biofilter, and 80W UV survived in the pit behind the pond so I was able to donate those to a local club member.

      Thanks, Steve in Ventura CA

      Benicia, CA, still on the bay so that it cools off nightly but far enough from the coast to be nice.

      That's it! Thanks! I wrote that with Dr. Cherry, a retired DVM who died a few years ago. He was also in the Ventura County Koi Society and discovered that local restaurant.
