    Talking Get ready to measure your koi!!!!!

    My stupid careless injury, I fell off a ladder applying a skim coat to my studio and landed on a bucket of mud. I was in a chair for two months.I am disqualified from the competition. I re-read the rules and My measurement was before 10/1/09. I will still measure the koi for fun. Thanks to Motown for reminding me! We have a little over THREE weeks to go. Good luck everyone!
    I love my two sweets!! Lori
