Thank you so much everyone for your kind words!

Stay tune Johnathon my man, there is a tune for you tomorrow LOL.

My computer died, the light on the screen monitor backlight died so it will be away for six weeks.

Not to worry, I have my other laptop but that it the reason for no music, I download on that machine from youtube as it is quicker! ~Pat

Distortion tools in Photoshop and worked on a image of a flower. Then I drew the fish a small tail as it was tail-less
then added a Star Fish to get the title. ~Pat
