Not very original with just my name! I really didn't know how to create an avatar when first joined the group. I know I have seen a thread around here somewhere about it...so If I really feel the need I know I can just search for the info

I could only wish there was a good story to this one. She swears that I have alien DNA that puts me in a class all my own! Talk about an inferiority complex! I think I stay married for the abuse!

Well, mine is obvious.
I posted my own pic because I discovered I could, and I was hoping to start a trend.

I like the idea of putting a face to a name. I just seem to relate to a face better than a cartoon or some other symbol. This group is very personable, and a face just seems appropriate, especially when you think about what we are all about-photographs.

So my vote (if we had one) would be to show a face - any face, so we can see who we're talking to.

I use the name Sanda because it's a name my young cousin calls me and when I signed up with this group I had just spent the day with her and had heard the name constantly so I guess it was etched in my brain. My name is Sandra, if I knew how I would change Sanda to Sandra.
As for the mouse avitar I use, well when I chose that I was feeling like a little mouse in such a large place and wanted to hide in my little mouse hole. I guess I was feeling a bit intimidated by the awesome talent here.

I think there is a way to change it but I like Sanda. It's unique and so are you. As for the mouse, I think you have become the mouse that roared. I would say you rank right up there in that talent list.

Re Doug's avatar: I was convinced it was demonstrating the latest typing technique.

Vikki - I definitely agree with you there. Remember that thread when I tried to persuade people to post their photos? Well, that fell right on its face (sorry!), didn't it? Obviously, most people prefer anonymity ...

Okay, I'll take on the "challenge" and change my avatar to a teeny picture of me. I started out with Snoopy lying on his doghouse in the sun -- I love dogs and live in sunny Arizona -- then changed it to our beautiful state flag, and now to me lying in the sun with a baby tiger -- the tiger cub was cropped out due to size restrictions. He's cuter but he never learned Photoshop. (No, I don't live with a tiger, but I did get to spend 15 minutes with two cubs as a fundraising project for a wild animal park in the area.)

My name is CJ, which is what my family called me since I was a kid(short for Carolyn Jean). This is a "homey" group, and I feel comfortable using it here.

I did not see the instructions for using a personal avatar. Please advise as to what the procedure is.

thanks,

Alan

All right, CJ!
Good to see you.
I envy you, living in Arizona. My parents, sister, and brother live there too. They often tell me how much they love it (usually when we're having a terrible snow storm, here in the outskirts of Buffalo, NY).
