That's too cute! *LOL* and you have to know that 300 gal. was certainly not
enough anyway..you really did want a bigger pond, admit it. ;-)
(pondering that moral, in PA)
Anyhow, it soumds as though you were looking for an excuse to enlarge

My eldest son (at 13) got me into this consuming hobby. He & his younger
brothers had this maze of forts and when he mentioned doing a pond, I said
the forts would have to go, as that was the only place a pond could be dug
(at the time). That was back in my weedless veggie Garden days. ;o)
Was I surprised when they agreed to be fortless. Took 2 days to tear them
down and four trips to the dump to haul it all away, within a week we had
water in the first pond, by the next we had water in the 2nd. The boys are
now 20, 17, & 13. Expensive, but worth it. :o) ~ jan
