Always enjoy seeing the beautiful Ms. Chloe, and lots of cherries. Yum! My friend used to have a big ole cherry tree in Greely, CO. Every spring my other friend and I would make the trip over there to pick some. Brings back happy memories (and messy ones).

Here is a shot of DH at the inaugural Sonoma Speedfest in his 1966 Ginetta G4R. The event was earlier this month. His group consisted of an Alpha Romeo a couple 911s, some Datsuns and a few others. Being a British mark, the Ginetta got a lot of attention from the few folks from GB that made the trip across the pond.

Wow peanut. S-E-X-Y


Though it doesn't show in that particular pic, the sun was out that morning so Chloe squinting a bit. When I get her "The Dogger" stroller (out of Canada) put together, will post a pic of her in her new ride. Still in the box a couple weeks now. It's lower on my priority list w/company coming soon. But it's time for life to be a little easier on her, though I still want to keep her walking some.

You need to prepare yourself BS, a girl as striking as Ms. Chloe will attract a lot of attention in her new stroller.

Geez, you'd think people down here in TX have never seen a dog in a stroller before. We went to an art show a couple of weeks ago (west fest), a lot of exhibits in a large room.

We have a wall that is in dire need of art, so off we went. Fonzie went along in his stroller.

Made one purchase, Bob, an armadillo in wax and resin (pic to follow). However, don't think much art was sold that day, all the attention was for the Frenchie in the stroller. And for the record, he can walk just fine, his stroller keeps him from hovering up crap from the floor (rocks, sticks whatever), and has the additional benefit of going out to for lunch and sitting right at table height. He usually doesn't get people food, but on some stroller occasions he will get a French fry.

Peanut, you're too funny :lol:

I have to tell you that is one of my most favorite pics of Fonzie. He is so "squeezeable" in that photo.

He was pretty little black then, BS. Still has his very first collar on. Now he's an ornery little dude.

Posting recent pic of Karen's Sweet Little Abby w/her permission to share, of course. Karen is a member of our "puppy fan club" as I call it.
This picture is just too precious not to share & I'm glad Karen agrees! :)

From Karen:
Abby has become intimately familiar with the art of head butting by the pigmy goats at play. Abby is as fast as a cheetah and loves to interact with the pigmy goats.
Abby and Gracie (little pigmy goat) sharing a nap together on their soft Orivs cuddlelounger bed. We all need to pause to soak in the simple beauty of animals/nature undisturbed.

If there's a cuter picture on this planet, I haven't seen it. :D

Lee, this is copied from the old thread. It was Sharon's post on the first page.....

Here's how to add pictures

Go to http://www.imgur.com

On the right hand side of the picture we need to click a few more tabs

if your on Mobile phone click Original to have access to resizing

Now also click Post Privately

Now inside the picture on the top right hand corner you will see the URL and an arrow click on the Arrow a drop down menu appears
Click Edit Picture, resize so that the picture is not bigger than the 2045 pixel
E.g. 2000 x 2045
Or 2045 x 2000

Now last step on that same drop down menu on the top right hand corner of the picture click on Download image the picture will appear on a new page, copy the URL and take it to CC
Inside CC post click on Img above the Emoji's

This will appear in your post

Paste the URL from Imgur in the middle like
[img]image%20URL[/img]

Write your message or add more pictures and your done
It sounds long buts it's easy, honestly


Hope this helps. I don't use imgur.

This is Miss Kitty, also known as Miss Stinky, and as Crazy Cat. She came from the Humane Society. They named her Anastasia. We call her that sometimes, but only when she is acting regal.
Youngest mobster wanted a cat for his 11th birthday, saw her at the shelter and said that's the one for me. She was 10 months old at the time. She was born at the shelter, but no one would adopt her because she had some type of eye issue that left her with a weeping right eye all the time.
This was her first day at the cottage. We had signed an agreement when adopting her that we would not let her outdoors, but she wanted out so badly. We let her out the next day. And every time that she goes up there. The rest of the year she's an indoor cat.

My father passed 21 years ago on June 10th. His service was on the 13th.
My mother clipped some blossoms from the peony in their garden to put in his casket.
4 months later she moved so that she was 5 minutes away from me instead of 90. The peony came with her and was planted in my front garden.
Every year I clip some flowers from it on the 10th to bring inside. They have a wonderful scent. And memories.

This year the weather has been dreadful. This is the peony on the 17th. Blooms not open yet.

Finally, on Thursday they did.

Last night I brought some in. I feel better now.

Thank you Mobrouser, I appreciate the info, but it is not working for me. I get an error message on here saying they can not verify size, thus will not take. I'm not allowed to choose a picture size on my computer, if I crop, I get the above message. I will try solely on my cell phone tomorrow. I have an apple I Phone 7, and an apple computer. I will try again tomorrow. Some of the directions I'm suppose to follow is not showing up on my computer or at my end.

Thanks again,

if you have the picture image on your Mac,
you can open it in Preview and under the TOOLS menu there is an "adjust size" option
it can be resized there and then uploaded to a hosting site
(I used to use photobucket and now use https://imgbb.com/)

I personally use my laptop or desktop for this and not my iPhone
( all my stuff is Apple / Mac based )
