Pic looks fine on my screen.

(I clicked when I saw the fire on the sidebar. I was worried that someone had a big fire at their property! Glad to see it was a test pic.)

Got it


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.

Rod, short story about the picture.

Big Tex is one of the most cherished things in Texas, and is right up there with the Alamo, and the mayor of Lajitas, Clay Henry. I was privileged enough to drink a beer with the original Clay Henry while on a water rescue school in 1992, and now Clay Henry IV is mayor. Not sure if he drinks his beer from a can or bottle, but Clay Henry I preferred bottles.

I was at the fire station, and I got this picture from a buddy that got dispatched to put Big Tex out. Big Tex had internal wiring for one arm, and his mouth, and there was a short near the bottom. He burnt up like a dried out cedar, and there was really nothing that could save him, so this picture is the only thing that Engine 6 had to show for their run.

I can only imagine if the butter cow at the Ohio State Fair caught fire.
