    My granddaughters. I've taken a ton of pictures of them together but it seems like one or the other is always looking away or making a funny face. This one is about the best I've come up with so far.
    When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "Happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life. - John Lennon

    About my current avatar--it is a photograph of the Aurora Borealis--the Northern Lights. I've always been fascinated by them because they are so ephemeral and so truly beautiful. Scientists are discovering that the Aurora Borealis activity indicate changes in the activity of the storms and the winds on the Sun.

    If you go to User CP to edit details of your profile, there's an area there to enter a custom user title.

    Lil Bit, your granddaughters are cuties! It's nice to see a pic of them together, as I remember your family went through so much to get them both over for visits.

    My husband and I saw the AB while up in northern Michigan (lower penninsula). It was magical, and we've been enamored ever since.

    Moving to Minnesota shortly and I hear they have good sightings there.

    Oh yes you should be able to see them. I've seen them as far south as northern Indiana.

    If you use google images ('northern lights') you'll be able to find a ton of excellent photos of the Aurora.

    Coltnlasma--thanks so much for the info about creating a user title. I had looked at that page but did not recognize the category. I appreciate your help.

    It's time to move on and bring Froggy back again. You will see an orange ribbon in every av from now on in memory of Zac.

    Unk,
    How would I be able to add in the orange ribbon to my avatar?
    I'm sure a lot of us would like to add it to our AV's in memory of Zac.
    TIA

    Found this one of a few rare ones of Mona and Joey together. Ahh Those were the days my friend, we'd thought they'd never end...
