    I'll be curious to see just how many post up dates in June.
    hopefully we'll have a good turn out.
    now you have me thinking and I am going to try to get a head count of those who posted arrival pictures



    44 folks posted arrival pictures and info
    a total of 101 koi....I think
    "unfortunates" posted are #s 20, 11, 77, 61, 37, 140, 34, 40, 76, 13, 107, 81, 143, 166, t182 and 162

    I still haven't seen Lucky lately, and the damm Raccoon hanging out at my pond is pretty smart. I got a trap from Bill, but Rocky tripped the trap, then turned it over so he could get at the tuna I was using as bait. I've got it back out there and not set so sensative so hopefully I'll get him.

    I'm hoping for the best, but since I have seen all the rest and not her I am a little worried. I haven't seen a body either, but if Rocky got her I wouldn't.
    Whoever said you can't buy happiness didn't know about Koi

    #13 is gone

    I put on my scuba gear and went looking for Lucky with no luck so the raccoon did get her. I guess that means I'm out of this grow out. Not the best of luck on my first grow out.

    When you see 1 raccoon you can count on there being several.
    I thought I had 1...........I trapped 12.......
