Maybe we should revive this thread in the winter when we are climbing the walls. Several years ago we posted pictures of ourselves . It was interesting to see the faces that went with the names. Anyone game?

Nice to meet u too, Jim
Come on you guys. The last time this was done, there were a zillion responses and that was before the advent of iPads, etc.

RE: Do you ever wonder what we look like?

Are you kidding! Without faces, we can all maintain wonderful fantansies. I have read too many biographies of my favorite poets, artists, etc only to discover they were real sobs.

What you see is what you get; what you don't see is better yet.

RE: Do you ever wonder what we look like?

They had a great response to a similar thread on the antique side. Maybe we're all older over there and no longer worried so much about looks.


 o
RE: Do you ever wonder what we look like?

We did this on the antique rose forum not too long ago and there were so many responses we had to start a new thread (you can only go up to 150 on one thread). And then we had to have a separate one on pets, which was really fun, although we also had pets on the first one. Children and spouses were also included, and it was really fun. Having company in a few minutes, but will try to post later in the evening.

I may have a different face but Bonita had my heart. She passed away last Tuesday 8/6/13, after 14 years of love and loyalty. Maryl

RE: Do you ever wonder what we look like?

Oh boy, this is fun!! Rosy friends, dogs, and cats are a few of my very favorite things. I'll have to get my daughter to upload some pics of my toy poodle, miniature poodle, yorkshire terrier, my 4 kitties, and me. She is incredibly busy so it may take awhile. Keep the photos coming!! :-)

Maryl,
I'm so sorry about Bonita. She was a beautiful cat. I know what wonderful, faithful companions kitties can be, and how much it hurts to lose them. I hope your roses help a little. Diane

Thank you Diane for your kind thoughts. We love all our furry companions, but now and then one comes along that earns an extra special place in our hearts. Bonita was such a cat for me.......Now on to the land of the living for the rest of you. Interesting to see who is who (or their Avitar in place of a human face)......Maryl


 o
RE: Do you ever wonder what we look like?

Maryl, I know just how u feel. Lost my best garden companion and friend a few years ago. Life is not the same without my Nikki. Bonita was a beauty.

RE: Do you ever wonder what we look like?

Here's my big, happy head...

This is "gardening" me...

This is me going to work (I sang at a festival behind a castle in a field )

This is me befor I "Brittany Spears"ed my hair...some young fella was giving me guff so Iatched off stage to put manners on him. He turned 50 shaded of red.

My partner says that if people saw gardening me they wouldn't be as impressed with singing me.

 o
RE: Do you ever wonder what we look like?

I love your gorgeous dress, mirendajean. Much nicer than our normal gardening attire. Your work sounds interesting and quite glamorous. Diane


 o
RE: Do you ever wonder what we look like?

It's nice to meet you guys too. I like seeing what everyone looks like...and all the gardening helpers. My helper is currently howling because there is a female nearby in heAt. I'll post a pic when he looks less sad.

Diane - one of those jobs that sounds glamorous but in reality is a job like any other. I had to navigate 2 acres of that field in heels while avoiding some lovely cow manure to get to the stage. I love my work but I think I love my roses more.

Susan - :-) I remembered to comb my hair those days. This is a lovely thread.

Jim - I'm allergic to you! It ok though, I've taken an antihistamine so it's lovely to meet you too.

RE: Do you ever wonder what we look like?

I always said I would never be one of those people who posed with their cats so here I am posing with a cat.

Altorama, re: "I sang at a festival behind a castle in a field" Awesome, hon!! I just LOVE the concept behind it!!! :-)

Maryl, I know just what you mean. There are certain animal buddies that get deep, deep down into our souls. I'm sooo sorry about your sweet, babykins Bonita. (((((hugs)))), darling.

LOL, Jim. You just behave your bad self, mister!!! ;-)

RE: Do you ever wonder what we look like?

We've got some real cuties on this forum. Love the friends and family pics too.

Yeah three dogs is a little psycho, especially three of these vet prone types, but you hear a sad story about the little guy that nobody wants and then you end up with three.
Here is us for real.

RE: Do you ever wonder what we look like?

Sorry, this is a work photo, but it will have to do. I don't want too many pics online in unflattering gardening gear because they would inevitably show up in my work when I least wanted them to. Am a lawyer by day.

Well this is me :-) after a long, long day. Trying to look somewhat decent for my hubby

RE: Do you ever wonder what we look like?

If you used an iPhone for the sideways photo, it's probably the culprit. My sisters and brother in law continually send me images from their iPhones and they're always sideways. Kim
