    Another I lingered over was this unique koi ... Yes, it's a Shiro Utsuri, but its clearly not from the lines of Shiro Utsuri we are accustomed to seeing. I was wanting to have Mat tell all about her, but the time came to leave for the airport before I had a chance. Another time.

    ...and the crowd was clearly pleased. The clouds were gone. The sun was bright.

    There were so many special fish. Then Mat announced: "Magoi" in his best voice.

    I could spend hours watching this fish... studying the bone structure, the height of the body. This is a big fish that only gives an impression of being slender. The eggs are held tightly under the shoulders, not loosely at the sides. Even when heavy with eggs, I bet this fish could cut through the water in great bursts of speed... like a knife. And the pigment is so even and deep.

    ...not a bad pattern, either.

    But there weren't hours to spend. It was getting to be 3:30 and the plane was taking off at 5:40 in Philadelphia, an hour away. It was time to go.

    ...and on the flight home, while I looked through some old magazines JR had available, and Henry organized photos on his laptop, there were some odd memories. But they will wait another day.
