We have a Wolverine wannabe too. It's so bad that we refuse to buy living room furniture. We keep a left over leather office chair set and an ottoman for him to scratch. My massage table has to be covered all over, and stuff piled on it, so he won't ruin it.
I made a post page on my blog of the collecties and am working on it each day. The collecties aren't totally gone. Throughout the years, I had been downloading the pics and saving them in monthly folders. A couple of days ago badbonita made me a nice Excell document. of each set, title, date of activation, etc... I converted that Excel document into an HTML table and put it in a blog post for the time being. Now it's just a matter of matching the collecties to the titles. fbastage, had numbered each week's colecties with a number at the beginning of the filenames, which I had downloaded collecties from teh console, as well as the submit posts. Sometimes the file name matches the individual title, and sometimes not, but the numbers at the beginning is helpful, so I'll be able to figure it out. Within the table, I'm embedding the individual pictures into the titled table cell. I'm doing around 5 or 6 sets of pictures daily, as HTML is tedious and takes time. I'm starting from the newer sets to the older and the table is fixed with the newest at teh bottom. Here's the page they're on. Scroll down and you'll see the pics of newer sets at teh bottom... http://digitalangeldonnadj.com/blog/?p=7784
Speaking of God.... The original unhappy cloud was in a picture I took a few years ago... http://cheezburger.com/8513728768 and http://cheezburger.com/8513756672 .... Makes for a funny LOL/Collecty to show I AM disappoint in the under construction at CATT. lol
For myself, I find it ever more important to be open to God continually rather than just looking at Him from time to time. The Old Testament is full of accounts of what happened when people let themselves be distracted from Him, and what happened as a result. It is only recently that I realized that such patterns can hold in our individual lives, very much to our detriment, if we lose sight of what is eternal, even for a minute, because things can happen in a minute. Nobody told me that when I was a kid - wish someone had.
At first I thought that maybe whatever you posted under Sissy's LOL was still in moderation, but that was more than fifteen minutes ago and nothing has showed up in your "stuff" section under "my comments." Would you please try again? I'm sure if you thought enough of it to post it I'd probably have to hang onto my chair to keep from physically ROFL. : 7 )
