Hey 'Jon', you're looking good, must be all that paddling!

Cuteness overload, Nemo! Little big sister is just adorable and those twins look like a very healthy weight--hope the parents are doing well too.

Kids are great. Then they reach teenage years, and all bets are off. Speaking from personal experience of course. Some will recover, some don't.

I am curious now. Did you cause a ruckus and they ran you off or what?

I'm, (as you may have noticed), often given to relating personal anecdotes if I feel they may be somewhat applicable, or peripherally related, to the topic at hand; the stories are true, (I don't tell lies, and why, indeed, would I bother to), and my pics are front & centre so that anyone who knows me, or has ever encountered me, can, if they have a different slant on a tale that they have had experience with, feel free to issue a challenge.

On the site in question I was flat out called a liar regarding my own personal history, and that of my education and ancestry, by an individual who claims/claimed to be a journalist but whose pic/identity has never been revealed.

I responded bluntly and the exchange escalated. (This, by the way, was at a time when the entire site was undergoing an internal upheaval, exacerbated by an overzealous moderator.)

Bottom line, a number of people were banned, (I wasn't one of them), and several threads, (one of which I took a particular interest in), were closed.

So I, and others, left. The site subsequently, (and I'm not certain that I have all the events sequentially correct as there were overlaps and general confusion abounded), changed hands, 'my' thread was restored, and several posters, either publicly or by PM, asked me to return.

I didn't, and I won't. C'est tout.

We were over there Monday......they have one of those long L-shaped sectional couches open at one end - to get down, the three year old (she's small) runs along it, jumps in the air just before the edge, lands on her butt at the edge, and bounces off.....hits the floor at a run and keeps going.....a sight to see....makes me laugh every time

DW says "OK, it's time to do a little advance packing planning for next month's trip....."

I keep telling my husband that I wish I were born a man. Life is much easier. He doesn't like that idea.

Nemo - I think that photo of the 3 girls could win the photographer a contest somewhere. Almost too cute to be true. Enjoy them!

Yes, she does great work, and drums up a lot of business.......she's a friend of the mother of the ten and seven year olds, and took the pics of them below:
