Greetings all! Am putting the finishing touches on a book about pond and lake construction. Collaborating with Mike Otto. The book needs a name.
So, who better to come to than this forum? We have some quick-witted thinkers here.
How about a catchy name for a pond/lake construction book?
The winner gets the first copy off the presses, signed (if you want it signed) along with a year's free subscription to the magazine.
Email me direct, if you wish. pondboss@texoma.net.
Winner will be announced as soon as we go through the mountain of emails (ha.)
Thanks, all.

"Toy Manufacturing for Big Boys" - actually, that was my wife's suggestion.

Building Your Dream Pond Step by Step

Filling your Dream Pond

Pond Building, more than just digging a hole – start to finish

Can ya dig it? Pond Building A-Z

You notice I like the A to Z and Step by Step things, but I like something tangible to hold on to from start to finish.

I'm surprised Nick Smith didn't call it...

I'd give some deep multiple-level play on words catchy title such as:

"Walking on Water: Engineering the perfect pond"

Or you could sell out and give it a quasi-racy title like:

"The Big Lake Erection Handbook"

which might sell a few extra copies, but then you would probably have to deal with a few disgruntled purchasers who might demand refunds...Or maybe not...The disgruntled buyers might be to embarrassed to complain.

Couple of thoughts:

Your Own Slice of Heaven: Building the Perfect Pond

The Man's Aquarium: Building the Perfect Pond

Someone else had posted an idea like this for a Pond Boss bumper sticker or something like that:
"Befriend a fish, build a pond."


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."
