    Do ponds go under? Boats, people, ice-skaters, companies go under...
    A pond could go down the gurgler/drain, if a sinkhole appeared perhaps...
    Yeah, I think ya right, a new day job is in order. :-)

    well,I used to think like you, till the wife and I went camping, we did some driving around the 3 rivers( they all converge neer the camp ground, with lots of gators in it) well we went over a few bridges and all around ended up kinda aacross the river from the campground... we went into a restraunt got a snack& drinks then saw a map on the wall, witch was awesome as I could see if there was a shorter route back to the camp.. well there was. dang neer straight shot across the lake/river/reservoir... but I dident see any bridge... then I saw the foot notes " submerged road" witch ran along the submerged pond!!! holly bat **** there was a submerged pond under that lake/reservoir full of alligators!!!! it was the highlight of my week. I often wonder if there are any alligators in that submerged pond...or just around it... so apparently a pond can infact go under.

    Well, the South has always had a well-known propensity toward exaggeration,
    Samuel Clemens made a very good living at documenting it, with, of course,
    suitable embellishments...

    Thank you. I looked up the Pond Machine Tool Co. and it turned into an interesting read because of the mergers that followed it.
