Thanks for the coveted award, the many accolades and shared enjoyment of the little fish. It's ironic how for years my biggest fossil passion has been Invertebrates and Plants; what do I get- Vertebrate awards. It would probably help if I would actually submit a plant or invertebrate for consideration. Maybe it's time to return to my roots. Thanks to you all. -John
