So glad to hear you and your family are safe! Good luck with all that clean up. Must say wine is a good idea - I always feel warmer after a glass or two!

Happy Halloween everyone!

I hope everyone out east weathered the storm alright. Got my fingers crossed that you are all ok.
OMFG David! I know you are jealous of me but this is taking things too far!

This is just freaky...posted this on the 31/10/12...well obviously due the reference to Halloween...the date has changed, the time has changed, my avatar is gone...I can't report it (just comes up as my first post)...and even going advanced is a tad haywire!

What spell did you put on it David! Isn't trick or treating enough for you?!

Phew! Thank goodness all is well with you crohnsinct...

The damage and destruction we are seeing on the news reports is just heartbreaking. What a sad and difficult time for so many, especially so for those that have lost loved ones.

Be safe and take care,
Dusty. xxx

Thx for the update crohnsinct. Hope u are all back safe and sound in your warm house with wifi soon. Looking forward to hearing about things getting better out there. The northeast has had more than their share of late October nasty storms recently.
Take care

Aww, those are so cute! Amazing what our pets will tolerate from our kids!

Years ago, our poor dog, a doberman (they are mean ONLY in the movies!!), was turned into a 'horse' every Saturday with Em and her friend. The girls would come home from riding lessons and would then teach the dog to trot and jump poles in a circuit they would set up! And then Stephen would play 'hockey' with the dog by try to get the ball past the dog to score - as long as there were two balls (one for her mouth) and the other she would try to catch with her paws, Stephen said it was like trying to 'deke' a player!

I drew the line when Em wanted to paint her toenails pink!

So glad to hear you are okay crohnsinct. It looks just devastating up there. Hubby's cousin lives in NJ and has no power either. Brings back a lot of memories from the tornado here last year. If there is anything we can send your way (I know wine is always an option ), let us know.

Now we know what crohnsinct looks like. Well at least in the bath tub. For those who have no idea what I'm talking about...yes it is that bad.

So I'll be the first to start and anyone can add to my description of the person and or change it.

She's quiet but mess with her kids and she'll tare you apart!!!!

Haha I just posted how you rated in getting my description right then saw where you wanted everyone to add to it so, I deleted but for some it might be a little easier because my first profile pic included me.

But ummm....Farmwife, why you picking on me first why not Tesscorm, Sascot or Dusty!!

Tesscorm

She's a bit harder to figure.
She's intelligent to a point.
She's feisty until she's ....not.
Her appearance I think is put together but not matchy (new word).
I think she's of normal stature with a bob hair cut.
Her weight is..........normal.

Ooopsie you read my last post before I deleted it but yep I'm talker, neurotic, slightly unhinged and severely clumsy... well now that we have summed me up glad you are moving on to Tesscorm...

I see Tesscorm as stylishly put together professional of above average height and slight build.

No fair that pic of me sucked! I am posting new pic later to redeem myself.

Yeah, I have seen pics of JM, Clash and Tess (eating a beavertail which is pretty much how I picture here...briefcase over shoulder, food in one hand wine in the other...happy gal...ready for a fight if she needs to)

And yes, while at the bar we are wondering why our gal pal Clash isn't there on time...did she get the date wrong again? get lost? Oh no she is at the gay bar not realizing she is the only woman in the joint making friends with everyone she sees and starting to panic about what might have happened to Tess and CIC to make them this late...she is strating to call the ER's.

So the town emergency communication came through this morning. They are happy to report that less than 1% of our town is without power not including the beach area...um half our town is the beach area. WTH kind of statistical reporting is that?

I have never posted a pic of me!!! Crohnsinct, I hate to disappoint you and Clash but Farmwife was much closer in her description!

Intelligent... to a point... then I hit a wall and turn into one of those electric toys that just keep bumping into the same wall! Then, again, that could be the 'feisty' side thinking - 'will you friggin' move already, I'm coming through!?!?!?

Put together but not matchy - absolutely! How the heck is anything going to match when half my clothes don't fit me!?!?

Weight... normal - right again! ...for a European with no willpower!

So, in essence, short, dumpy, mismatched with curly, crazy hair!

Now my thoughts... Crohnsinct faked her picture! There's no way a European who eats cupcakes all day and drinks wine all night can be that thin! ....Oops, forgot about the pole-dancing! That'll burn a few calories!

Clash - I'm with Farmwife's description - she may not be hanging out car windows anymore but she's still a rebel and walks with a swagger!

Sascot - LIAR!! - You posted a pic of Andrew and Amy so you most definitely know how to post pictures! Now you OWE us one!!!

And, dear Farmwife who I once pictured as a petite sweet blonde cutie! Hah!! Now I know better... Blonde amazon (ok, michigan) goddess is more like it! One of those annoyingly 'nice' people who do it all - manages the farm, makes princess dresses for her princess and goes cow-tipping for some exercise! Biggest heart around BUT cross her (or hers) and she'll leave you quivering in a puddle of Mountain Dew!

I've seen Dusty, Twiggy and Jacquie so I've got to stay quiet there!

So no one else now sees Dusty as a cartoon kangaroo in a pair of flip flops(one of my fav profile pics of hers)....laid back but plucky with an affinity for roots...well I guess that solidifies it then I am slightly unhinged.

Now tell me again wth am I doing in this gay bar...is the wine better there because that might be a determining factor!
