Hi Lauderlover

[New Laugh] [Big Grin] [New Laugh] Should the miracle happen and you find one or even two green apples, I look for this solid also since years!!! I place myself gladly behind you into the number of the collectors which are "looking for the green apple"!!!

If I'm already thereby:

Evenly also for a long time and unsuccessfully I look also for the ivory Panda!!! [Big Grin] [New Laugh] [Big Grin]

Liliane, how nice of you to get behind her in line . [Big Grin]

Not me, I want to be first in line to get the green apple. [New Laugh] [New Laugh]

Just kidding- I have waited for years so can wait a little longer. [Big Grin]

Ann and Ken...you two continually crack me up! [New Laugh] [Big Grin] [New Laugh] [Big Grin] I was talking to a saleslady from Bergdorf's in NYC and she told me they made fewer of the green apple than the red one. She also told me how their store only got 13 of them and they went like hotcakes! [Eek!] Wish I had a time machine!!! [New Laugh] [New Laugh] [New Laugh] :

Must have been Donna. [Big Grin]

Someday they will find a warehouse full of them.
El doesn't make just 13 of anything. [Big Grin]
Or if we keep asking EL will reissue it ( after we pay big bucks for one).

REMEMBER THE ROSE.

Just like this years GD, the bow and the cameo. Aren't the designers getting paid to create new designs not take the easy way out and copy something from the past years. [Roll Eyes]

I can't wait to see the Dragonfly up close.

I have been trying to catch one in the back yard to see if it really has 4 legs. [New Laugh]

What are they thinking doing a dragonfly after last years Strongwater dragonfly. The GD are designed by different people than the exclusives , but don't they check with each other. Hello, is anyone there at the top???

Hi Ann !
I catched a dragonfly in the "net".

6 legs - but surely designers are no animal experts [Big Grin] and maybe it's easyer to leave out two [Cry] poor animals.

Thanks for the photo. What a good shot. Ours in the back yard won't hold still for me.

Think what may look funny with the EL dragonfly is that his feet are so far apart , like the doggie by him.

I am sure we will love him anyway. Another little poor creature to add to our home. [New Laugh]

Great photo Michaela!

Ann I agree with you about having the dragonfly last year and another one this year. What are they thinking <img border="0" alt="[Puzzled]" title="" src="graemlins/puzzled.gif" />

Down here in FL we have dragonflies by the hundreds flying around our yard. I guess due to the fact that we live behind a canal and next to a pond, breeding grounds for mosquitos. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" /> The dragonflies eat them. I love them they are beautiful, this one I rescued out of our pool so he didn't mind posing for me. <img border="0" alt="[New Laugh]" title="" src="graemlins/newlaugh.gif" />

He is lovely. Is he really that blue??? Ours are all green.

Coming home from Fla. one got in the car and Ken had him on his lap till we reached here and of course our first stop was at the vet to pick up the darlings. I went on in and they asked where Ken was and I told them he was outside making sure the dragonfly left the car safely and not out in the traffic . They weren't surprised. [Big Grin]
[Big Grin]

We couldn't bring him all this way to have him splatted on some careless drivers car.

Last we saw him he was resting at the vet's pond.

P.S.
Baton Rouge is a pond and canal. [New Laugh] [New Laugh]

Michaela and Lisa: Thank you both for the beautiful photographs of the dragonflies. Lisa/Jack, what kind of digital camera do you use?

Ann and Ken: What are your little darlings?

Thank you.

Martha,

Our digital camera is a Kodak DC290. It is rather big and outdated though. Jack wants a new one. [Smile]

Ann and Ken,

Glad that you rescued the dragonfly. Somehow, I can just imagine Ken caring for him while you went in to retrieve the "Fab Four".
I'll just bet that your darlings were very glad to see you!! I will send you a private message...want to hear more about your kitties.

I'm glad that you were safe during "Bill's Fury".

Dry out soon... [New Laugh]

More later,

Mimi
