It's the notorious Mark here- a realitively new member- I have written in the past and kinda got chewed out royally for posting - cause I sold 2 of my lesser adored solids to pay for my redone FANTASTIC looking front yard.
Hi again Mark! Glad to see ya 'round posting again . . . let's not go back to that first post of yours!! Ya gotta laugh!
As I remember it you got a hell of a lot of support as well!
Take it easy and remember that everybody admires a bloody good garden!

I have no idea what that thing is on your hand, but if it were in my yard I'd be hammering a "House For Sale" sign into the lawn with one hand and throwing boxes into a moving van with the other!
Gotta' give you credit....what on earth is it and why aren't you stepping on it?

And Lisa- as far as that huge creature- YIKES!!!!!!!! I will take my little Black Widows over that thing anyday!!- The water bugs near my pool aren't even as big as that- nor is my Shelti dog as far as that goes!!!!
I will continue to add message here and there!!

I think it would make a terrific Jay Strongwater solid because of the details and colors.
I can do anything with my nails- I actually refer to them as tools not nails!!

you are perfectly right. I know also French (I strongly prefer English) but using much less French (except if I have to reply to adds for the sale of miniature perfum of my collection) I have difficulty and when I'm out with my husband together with French people with whom he works I say two words in French and then I continue with English and this makes my husband furious because he says I have to be kind with them using their language! He works also with Swedish people and fortunately he does not ask me to talk in Swedish language!

Was hoping you'd tell us it was a Muppet, however.....

I can say "Je ne parle pas francais" and "Comma va tu???", but that's it. My first husband who passed away at an early age was German and I asked him to teach me how to speak German, but he wanted to teach me Japenese instead. I did not want to learn Japenese.
Then I remarried a man from Turkey and I did learn part of the Turkish language, which I still use when I meet someone who is rude so they don't understand me (he taught me the "bad" Turkish words! When I hear people speak French in real life it sounds so beautiful. I also know a girl who speaks Italian fluently and that also is a beautiful language.
I also think that the Lubber Grasshopper would make a great Strongwater Solid!

There is already a grasshopper EL powder compact and since we know that repeating the past is in great favor now maybe they will do one.
But it could never be as cute as Lisa's.

You are brave. I do not think I would have picked up that grasshopper, given its size and all. Why just recently there was a preying mantes on the door knob of my front door when I came home from work and I couldn't get him to move. He kept me out of my house for a 1/2 hour!! I'm such a "scaredy cat".
By the way, I'm glad to see more posts by old and new members and I promise to try to be more "socialable" too. Many times, I just read and take-in on what everyone is posting and have learned so much from many of you.
I'm glad, too, that I've had the opportunity to meet some of you and I hope to have more opportunities in the future. You all are truly amazing people!!!

Well..thanks to "notoriuos" Mark..I have a lovely princess phone solid, which I just adore! Thanks, again Mark!
And I am very grateful to all the members who educated me about the pros and cons of certain solids. I feel that as a result of this acquired knowledge, I was able to spend my money wisely and avoid horrific ebay situations...although I just won an ebay auction for a SLOT MACHINE MIB! YIPPEE and thank you to Denise!
