    "From tiny acorns mighty oaks grow"

    Do you know how many years I have been looking for "acorn" trees ? [​IMG] It was but this year I realized I already have them.

    Didn't hurt hardly at all. I have my hubby's name on my ankle. Name is in a ribbon over a heart with flames at the top. The bright colors fade if you're in the sun a lot. Mine needs recolored. I'd like to get a little newfie on my other ankle.

    Have just looked at the link there are some really nice ones there. I hope things grow and grow for them.


    That's good to hear Newfie that it didn't hurt too much maybe I should push myself to get one done!!

    I would like something like this ~

    I have a tattoo and can honestly say it didn't hurt at all - I'd jump at the chance to get another (or two or three, lol), but I have never been able to settle on just what I want....and I have a hard time convincing myself that's something that I should be spending $$$ ( I have a hard time spending money on myself for anything). DH has several - the whole, "stereotypical military guy" thing I guess, lol.

    Wow- that does surprise me, like Granny I had just always read you as being older than that.


    Oh, Granny -- this is one of the many reasons I love you (hope that doesn't come across weird)

    Get a look at their actual work on skin. It is permanent.

    Oy - well, at least it gives you yet another "remember when" memory to look back on together down the road and laugh about. I hear you on the dually part, NOT a fan of driving them at all.

    Sounds like our Aeryn, an Easter Egger, she is flat nuts -- she's DD's chicken, reminds me a lot of DD, just saying. I don't remember my Polish being like that when I had them many years back (like, back in the stone ages when I was in 4-H), but I didn't spend near as much time messing with them as I did my cochins so it may be they were nuts and I just never noticed. I liked using them for 4-H because they were different and something no one else in our county had so it was easy for them to be noticed and stand out in the poultry barn.

    First of all, {{{{ hugs }}}}} -- I lost my dad when I was 17 and all these years later still get emotional when I think of all the parts of my life he wasn't there for.

    Yep - birds with head-dress tend to be overly reactive due to impaired vision *and* the head dresses can draw extra (negative) attention from flock mates - so it's a perfect storm of their head feathering being attractive to picking and them being ill-equipped to see it coming/get away.
