    Post a picture of yourself

    I have found this fun on other sites and it helps put a face with a name. I will start. Had a presentation for school.

    I've seen some creative posts in some of these kinds of threads. Backs of heads, sillouetes, shadows, etc. Mine on one parrot board I belong to has me standing with my Macaw in front of my face with his wings spread out - I'm there, just a bit "obscured" -

    Re: Post a picture of yourself

    Don't hold your breath for a picture by the pool, all the prior years nobody would dare take a pix of me there and so far this year I would just look crabby anyway. This is mostly what I am doing in 90% my free time when not working on pool stuff so I can actually swim- pic from last fall at our local parade with my pride and joy, Shadow.

    GeekGranny mucky pool cleanup and acid wash 2004. The plaster under the scale is blue. Last picture is summer 2008 acid wash after we let the tadpoles become frogs and escape. Temp that day was 100+ F. Not much cooler at night. My visiting friend, Shelsey, helped me. Geekgranny does have some experience with calcium scale. And metal stains. This was before discovering TPF. Shouldn't ever see these conditions again.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
