...ah, but the SMILE on the cow, so mysterious, so enigmatic...you'd only find a cow like that on the farm of a true Renaissance man like our Theo......I'm not surprised that in addition to being enigmatic, the beast can also levitate.

Looks like a great project!! The only thing better then one pond is two ponds. Of course, the obvious next step is to figure out where the third pond will go?

It's not how many ideas you have, but how many you make happen.

3/4 and 4 acre ponds.

Actually, Eddie, I know where a third pond would go - roughly where the pig's head is. What I don't know is when it would happen or how the $ for it would appear. \:\(

OTOH we all know why. ;\)

{TEMPORARY THREAD HIJACK ON]

This is gonna date me some but do you folks remember years ago in the back of magazines (found mine in the TV guide) you could find an ad to draw a deer or a skunk and send it in for a free art evaluation to a place... I think it was called American Art Institute or some name like that? Well a youthful JHAP painstakingly tried to draw the sample deer as well as he could and send in to the Institute for a free evaluation hoping that he would become a great artist. A few weeks later I received a reply back that after careful evaluation of my drawing the American Art Institute had determined that I would make a great CPA. Ok, I admit it that was not the exact response but they basically said "don't call us we'll call you." I was a crushed young JHAP.

And now look at me some 40 plus years later my art work is being compared to Da Vinci and Picasso. TAKE THAT American Art Institute!

Sorry for the interruption you now may return to your regularly scheduled programming.

Wow. At 10:32 this morning Theo just made post number 5K. Now, that's prolific.


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.

Numero uno - It varies depending on whether each field is being used for first cutting of hay and then pasture, first and second cutting of hay and then pasture, hay only, or pasture only, but it averages about three times a year.

Numero dos -

TOP TEN REASONS THEO MIGHT BE BUILDING A SECOND POND AND INQUIRING ABOUT AN AQUACULTURE LICENSE:

10. Was reading Matthew 4:19 and pretty much got it backwards.

9. Needs to intensify efforts if he is ever going to kill as many fish as Condello.

8. 22 years of gainful employment have left him with a dread fear of receiving a steady paycheck.

7. After years of getting no respect while fighting crime in his secret guise of Aquaman, he intends to cash in on sole super power of mental telepathy with fish.

6. The first track on The Beatles' Revolver album.

5. Space Aliens offered to stock second pond for free giving distinct business advantage over competition.

4. Family doctor recommended he work underwater due to chronic dry skin condition.

3. Setting up new Top Secret headquarters for Pond Boss' move to Ohio (Bad news: Future PB conventions will be in Granville, Ohio. Good News: Someone in Oklahoma will now be the first to receive each issue of PBMag.)

2. Has entered mid-life crisis but doesn't like Corvettes.

AND, THE #1 REASON THEO MIGHT BE BUILDING A SECOND POND AND INQUIRING ABOUT AN AQUACULTURE LICENSE,

1. Needs new material to use for writing his second 5000 forum posts.

Entertaining as usual, Theo. My favorites are 10, 3, and 2.

Really, what are you trying to say here?

If PB moves to Ohio, I'll still bet I'd get mine first!

Congratulations Bro! 5K!!! 5K More!!!!! Wait...

10 - Had to break out the bible to translate that reason. (Yes I own a bible, even though I might, on rare occasions, engage in behavior that is more comparable to the actions of a minion of the netherworld, just for the record, I do in fact own a copy of the good book).

9 - Ouch, cheap shot. Glad you and Condello are friends otherwise you never know what form of revenge a dentist could inflict upon you.

6 - Ahhh, a Beatles classic...
Let me tell you how it will be;
There's one for you, nineteen for me.
'Cause Im the taxman,
Yeah, Im the taxman.


2- You don't like Corvettes??? What about apple pie?

1- Congratulations on 5,000 Theo. That right there is good enough reason for me. I look forward to the next 5,000. We're lucky to have you here.

Okay, to get this thread back on track (and you have no idea how astonished and upset I am that it ever got OFF track):

Core trench was excavated this A.M. and partially refilled and compacted in the afternoon. I got to watch the last 6" (or so) lift being dozed in, spread, and compacted.


The prettiest vibrating sheepsfoot roller (turbocharged diesel; DON'T GO THERE!) driver I know told me "NO MORE DAMS WITH 70 DEGREE CURVES IN THEM!" \:\(


Note she didn't say "No more dams!"

Really top-notch documentation. Great looking dam.

Have you considered looking into the snakehead/gizzard shad option?

I feel that Theocity's profile picture would be better served if he was holding up a stringer of snakeheads.

That is one classic photo, ain't it! That's gotta be the first PB file photo of a vibratin' sheepsfoot in action...and look who's the skipper. This one goes into the Gallus family scrapbook for sure.
Which piece of heavy equipment are you runnin', Theodoseous? :p

I've been gathering up and stockpiling big rocks with a front end loader after work once the big rigs shut down for the day. Other than that, I operate a camera.
