Oh she did polish off that big slice of cake all by herself . It made me laugh though.
So I have suitably messed up the boards .
Let the fun begin .

It's possible that Karen is checking up on this thread.

I know she is a big lover of dogs.

Bluebonnet season is a big deal here in Central TX. It lasts a good 6 weeks, and we get pics of all sorts of things in the bluebonnet fields, longhorns, goats, chickens, babies, police officers, cats, the list is quite extensive. Here we have an example of a French Bulldog surrounded by bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush.

There was a little 'incident' @ the park a couple of weeks ago. Little Miss Chloe ended up behind bars.
She was cited for being "under the influence in a public setting". Not too happy.
Codeine sulfate, that is for those aching joints.


Image



She was released almost immediately w/o bail upon discovery of a loaded poop bag on her mom's person.
What a relief that is. So embarrassing.

Ridiculous...16 years old & still getting into trouble just like her mom. :roll:

Yay! Loved seeing the picture posts from everyone on here—thanks, MOB for starting a new one.

These are from a local orchard—we love our cherries and nothing as tasty as fresh picked cherries right off the tree, yum! I picked around 11-12 pounds and they were gone in about five or six days. Last year we even made sure our vacation incorporated a day at the National Cherry Festival in Traverse City, Michigan. If you love all things cherry then I highly recommend it!

Beautiful pic of cherries Soccermom! My sister & I picked 104lbs one day in the orchard & canned them. Kids & I were spitting pits from one end of the state to the other.


Lee, Keep trying. Not too bad once you get it figured out. You will have to resize to post on CT. I use 640 pixels in the first resize box, then the other one auto fills in. Click on copy section to message boards & you can automatically paste on CT w/o using the forum image brackets here.

Takes awhile to figure it out; play around w/it.

Well, just in case...Karen, this rose is for YOU. Took this pic the other day.

It is my most favorite rose in my garden & so fragrant:
Sheila's Perfume

Sheila, the hybridizer's wife, must be a lovely lady (and smell mighty nice, too) to equal this gorgeous rose imported from England. Despite the Floribunda classification, her flowers of yellow brushed by deep pink are more like a Hybrid Tea in size and form. And, yes, each blossom is saturated with wonderful fragrance. The vigorous rounded bush is loaded with glossy green leaves. Best flower color & size when cool.
