Wow, that's a grand offer! The wife and I need to see more of east Texas and meet more pond crazy folk (as evidenced above, lol). Attended Bob's Pondology in October, now I understand the difference between us, in San Antonio, experiencing an hour of thunderstorms, and the same cold front storm system extending a hundred miles along the EastTx/Ok border.
But it was the best of times...a small crowd, new friends, grand hosting, fabulous food, fishing, and "projects" of a minor nature.

'Ole Guvnor Davidson's Exclusive Case Study Guide on 'How Not to Get Invited Back (..and not invited at all):'

"Hold my beer and watch this.
Wanna bet?
Man, that looks like fun.
Do you know who you're talking to?
Of course I like tequila."

And more stories like "when Guvnor Davidson met a young man who wanted to get into the fountain aeration business, and proceeded to tell him that fountain aerators were worthless and then just walked away leaving Allen Hall and Sunil to help the young man pick up the pieces of his shattered dreams."


Excerpt from Robert Crais' "The Monkey's Raincoat:"
"She took another microscopic bite of her sandwich, then pushed it away. Maybe she absorbed nutrients from her surroundings."

That was a moment. Didn't take us long to access the situation and steer him towards B Lusk.

That was a fun PB conference.

I still maintain that fountains are useless for aeration. I see them like I do race horses and beauty contest winners. Nice to look at but don't do a lick of work.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

The poor kid needed encouragement and guidance. You could see the gleam in the kid's eyes as he approached Guvnor Davidson. I think the kid knew who Guv was, and thus sought out his advice....and support.

While giving Guv's opinion of Fountain Aeration was a five-finger death punch to the young kid, Guv just walking away after that was maybe too much.

Brian let me know as it gets closer if you want me to pickup BBQ meats again at Winnsboro's "Bodacious Bar-B-Q" or "Countryboys BBQ and Sweets"...whichever you think is best. Be happy to do it.

just curious, will there be t-shirts like the last one? I got more comments about my t-shirt. People asked a lot of questions about Pond Boss!! I have almost wore the lettering out of mine! Wish I had another one!!


Dear Alcohol, We had a deal where you would make me funnier, smarter, and a better dancer... I saw the video... We need to talk.

Wow Flame that's cool to hear. I kind of doubt I will do the t-shirts this time. We never know how many people are going to show up and most of all sizing is a nightmare...and of course the expense. I did the t-shirt thing for two Pond Boss get-togethers...and might be retired from that. I am pretty sure I still have some of those shirts brand new so if you let me know your size I might still have one.

Mark,
There will be cameras with different vantage points available.

AR and Mark, About the food, let's get a head count going then we can see about the food.

Lance,
Great to hear from you as well. Looking forward to the gathering.

I too still wear my shirt from time to time. I might have one or two extras around if Mark doesn't.

Okay it's time to start getting more serious about attendance numbers. If possible, can I get head count. You are welcome to say maybe, or I believe, etc.

I do need to start coordinating food, drinks and other activities. And there is going to be a reveal.
