    Talking Have fun and don't be too serious

    A friend of mine wanted to know if there was a koļ pond in paradise, so he went to the prest and asked him about that.
    The prest had no reply, so he told him he would ask to the Pope, after a few weeks he went back to my friend and said to him that he had ask to the Vatican and he had the answer. He had a good news and a bad one.
    The good news was that there was a fantastic koļ pond because Jesus was also a fanatic koļ keeper and each person had his turn to feed the koļ; the bad news was that he was on the list to feed the koļ tomorrow.

    Who knows another one ?

    Nice week-end to all of you

    there was a quiet koi keeper who kept to himself in a back woods type of rural area. His contact with people was minimal.

    one day he bought on koi on auction and look forward to the time of delievery.


    about the time he was thinking he would get word of the shipment, western union sent a represnetative out with a telegram to deliever personally to him.

    well our quiet koi keeper always wanted a singing telegram so he asked if this was one.

    "naw", I don't sing mister was the reply "sign here".

    well the koi keeper went on about how he always wanted a singing telegram and how uplifting it would be etc and finally refused to sign until the western union rep gave him a singing telegram. So the request and denial went back and forth.

    finally in desparation the western union man gave in and started


    da-da-did da da da... " your auction koi is dead ".....

    This one is kinda juvenile....but, hey, I teach 4th graders.

    What did the koi say when he swam into a concrete wall?

    "Dam."

    Ruth, you shouldn't encourage me....I wrote one just for you:

    There was a koi-keeper named Floyd who didn't get much respect from the other members of his local koi club. Most of his koi were of mediocre quality and he had some longfins as well. He loved his fish all the same, but he still hungered for the approval of the koi club.

    One day Floyd was watching a show on the Discovery Channel about how dolphin trainers teach dolphins to do tricks. It showed a bottlenose dolphin leaping from the water through a hoop, doing a spectacular flip, and diving back into the water through the middle of the same hoop. Floyd had a flash of inspiration. He would train his koi to do tricks! The koi club would be dazzled.

    Floyd spent weeks working with his fish. He followed all of the same steps the trainers used on the show, but nothing was happening. He became so obsessed with training his fish, he started to slack off on backwashing his filtersand doing water changes and his water clarity became terrible.

    Finally, the day of the meeting arrived and the members gathered around Floyd's pond. Floyd was so ashamed he refused to come out of the house. His wife did not like seeing him upset and became angry with the koi club for treating her husband so poorly. She marched out to the pond to shame them. She played Floyd's dolphin video and explained how he had spent countless hours training his koi.

    Just as some of the members began to laugh and got up to leave, Floyd's most beloved Halloween koi suddenly leapt from the murky water right through the center of a feeding ring, did a 360 flip and a barrel roll and then dove back down into the same ring! Everyone was speechless with amazement. One by one, the club members began to applaud, proclaimed Floyd a true genius and nominated him "Koi-person of the Year". They wrote him a heartfelt letter of apology, gave it to his wife, and left.

    Floyd's wife rushed inside with the letter in hand and breathlessly told Floyd what had happened. But Floyd just silently shook his head.

    "Honey, why aren't you more excited?" his wife asked in confusion. "You've worked so hard for this!"

    "Sweetheart," he responded," it was just a lucky fluke."
