    Sorry - meant to post when I got home with him and forgot -- he's not the best at letting you take photos (too anxious to get close to you so not so good at sitting and waiting for you to take a picture) -- but he did come home with a smashing new tie on his collar:

    BDD was jealous of my attention to LDD (and the fact that he was sitting close to her ducky toy) and planted herself in front of the camera

    There are so many people I think would be fun to meet in person - but even when the opportunity comes up I am hard pressed to make myself do it. I suffer horrible social anxiety, so online places like this are heaven sent for me. Times when I do force myself to go to something I do so wanting to have a good time and determined that it will be different, and it usually ends up the same -- me going home disappointed and thinking of all the things I wish I had said and regreetting the whole mess.....plus being so quiet and reserved often ends up being judged as being snobby or b****y

    Oh, that picture! That is one cool dog.
    Good to hear the car is fixed -- and that it was something pretty quick and easy.

    Adorable babies! Love the tie :D I would never guessed you for one with social anxieties, but I know what you mean. You just never know what you might walk into. Luckily today was a nice day!

    So, today while I was gone to work DH had a friend out to the place (not planned, DH was using my truck today, ended up having trouble and had to ask buddy for a ride home) -- said friend wanted to meet the chickens and see the coop, etc. How sad is it that I was more upset at the thought of someone seeing my "dirty coop" (Sundays are my coop chore day) than the possibility of him going into the house when I hadn't had a chance to tidy before leaving for work..........

    I seriously doubt that the 'Pond Scum' has any interest in being judgmental of others. This group is pretty much, 'what you see is what you get'. I like the lack of pretention.

    Sour, we can't afford to be pretentious... heck, most of us can't even afford to pay attention, much less anything........

    What kind of dog is LDD? Wow, those ears on BDD!! They're both great looking dogs. Thanks for sharing.

    Couldn't agree more!
