ED to Philippa "saw that pic when I was cruising a fren's pic stash" - in the immortal words of Boris of Rocky & Bullwinkle fame, "go on, say the name - I could use the publicity!" and we can all use more pictures and more lols. Over 5,600 so far...
I'm sorry I unloaded on you. It's been on my mind all day. Sometimes I'm ashamed to be a member of the human race. I wish I could help her find him, and I really wish I could take her neighbors and dump them in th emiddle of nowhere and see how they like it.
Thanks. I'm glad you liked it :) That lol was inspired by Coco and my other two dachsies who have since crossed the bridge. You're right, it wasn't too easy to practice at home. I tried not to play too loudly so I wouldn't disturb the neighbors. I'm quite sure which one I could live without. A few years ago, I would've said I could live without tv, but now I'm not so sure. I don't think there are any plans for Memorial Day weekend, but it would give me a three day weekend, which would be really nice. Did you ever catch some big fish? How was your Wednesday? Mine was alright and not too busy. Have a great evening and Thursday :)
Hopefully I will be up to doing a quote and some LOLs soon. Took my father to the doctor today. He is having some fairly serious issues. One of the grands is sick again ( ai swearz schools r liek cesspols). Some other goings on but not wanting to post here about it right now. How's things in your neck of the hundred acre wood?
Not delicious, but not bad, except that I'm haunted by what VioletD's horrible neighbors did to Thomas. It's the first thing I saw when I looked at my DB today. Sometimes I don't want to live in this world either.
Oh just so. SO...Today I was skritching Silvertoes on the patio and he rolled to one side. Being a shorthair, I could see he drew back the corner(s) of his mouth!! YES THEY HAS TEH SMILE!!! In addition to all of the eye blinks/half-eyes, chin-ups, exposure of teh belleh and/or teh anterior armpits, the brushing out of the fur at the tail base (not all do this!) and many more. We just need to learn their body-lingo and pass that intel on to anyone we know who comes to engage with them aminals! Just a tiny crewsade on my part.
^Neomarica gracilis^, commonly called walking iris. Some folks call it “Apostle’s Iris” because the flower stalk arises when the plant has twelve leaves. It is also called walking iris because the flower stem droops to the ground and roots there. The leaves and flowers look like a cross between an iris and an orchid.
Thanks for the tips on the African violets. I had some really good pics of the hanging Iris's on a prior computer that crashed and I lost them all. The blooms look like miniature iris's hanging all over the plant. I will try to find the correct name and a photo.
I think trying to figure out a rhyme or reason for this spring's weather patterns for anyone is a losing proposition. We don't usually get this hot and we're usually past all the sub 50 nights too but we'll have both in the next week. I don't think I've ever used marjoram...what do you use it in most frequently? You use a pretty wide variety of greens. I have ventured out to spinach or arugula for salads sometimes but it's usually store bought iceberg lettuce. Were you truly playing this morning or were you taking care of business for KKPS. I'm enjoying everything around mayhem. I'm always in awe of how creative people on this site are. Congrats on getting that one side of the house squared away. That was a good sized project. It does change things when you're just cooking for yourself, doesn't it? Putting everything you're supposed to on you plate seems like a lot of effort if you're not doing it for someone else too. Salmon patties are a good and easy way to get dinner on the table. The ham and beans are all gone. I grilled steaks for us at the folks place last night. Tonight I'm doing chicken sausage and pasta again. That one comes up in the rotation pretty often. It's just so easy and tasty. It didn't get crazy hot today but we still spent a quiet afternoon. I started a new series...In Plain Sight...It's Mary McCormick as a US Marshall doing witness protection program. The pilot was pretty decent. There were a few parts that missed the mark but there are some quirky characters in there and some good attitude that carry the story. Will you be playing here tonight?
I couldn't help looking back over the old pictures, but it really irks me that we don't get new ones. There aren't even that many being given in the Cats section. Grrr I'm very unhappy that the Historic section is officially ending next week. I knew it was coming though. Phasers will be next. Sigh. Hope you find some inspiration in the old photos. My day was okay, thanks. Hope all is going well with you.
Odd how we respond to facial expressions in a knee jerk way. it seems to have to do with brain wiring/programming that has to do with older pre-language functions involving identifying trustworthy and untrustworthy individuals in our tribe/others hordes. Odd how it carries over to perceiving facial expressions on innocent animals on the Webz. Ok so I'm a brain science wonk...heehee.
