Sounds like a normal healthy foal. How's the Mare doing? Tom

Just great!

I'm really excited because I've just discovered how to put those elusive smilies in my post, so here goes:-

Vampire (HAD to try that one):
Clown:
Bandit:

If this works, it'll be a double thumbs-up!

Look out Sam found the Smilies!!!! I just love it when members discover the neat new toys. Now all you need's an avatar. (the little picture under your name) Maybe there's a horse one in the list.

Sounds like the little guy is going to be quite a handful if he's already practicin to be a bucking stallion. I've never broke a horse but I have fallen hard on my butt a few times so I can imagine that's not something you want to make a lifetime carreer out of. Time to sit back and watch others fly off.

What? Another elusive toy from RetouchPRO? Now, how do you get this "avatar" item? Where is this "list" you speak of and what other surprises/mysteries await??

Fascinated,
Zimbabwe

Sam, Click on the "user cp" button at the top of any of the RetouchPro forums pages. Then click on the "Edit Options" button on that page. Scroll down to the bottom the the Options page and the very last thing will be the avatar. I think it's fairly self explanatory from there (including the list DJ talked about.) -Jeanie

Just couldn't quite identify with the various Pokemons, Scooby-doo and Flintstone characters on offer (except perhaps Barney Rubble - his feet look a bit like mine), so let's see what this looks like.

It's been a veritable voyage of discovery this morning!!!

Loved seeing the photo of the colt. The little ones are so cute.It looks like you are having beautiful weather there-what are your temperatures there at this time of year?
We're geting somewhat anxious down here in Florida with a hurricane heading for Cuba and perhaps hitting the lower part of our state in a day or two. Couldn't sleep (it's 3:52AM here) and decided to take a look at the weather map on the computer.
Just notice that you got your reply from Jeanie about the avatar.

Jeanie if you are online I just wanted to mention a good book that I'm reading that takes place in Vietnam-It's" Lost Soldiers" by James Webb It's fiction but the author certainly seems to know the area.

Hi Paulette,

Temps here around 30 degrees C. but getting humid now - first rains of the season expected any minute - and desperately needed.

Gee - if it's not terrorists learning to fly jumbos, or little packets of deadly viri (plural of virus???), you've got hurricanes to think of ... !!

Keeping fingers crossed it doesn't hit you ...

Paulette, Thanks for the tip on the book. I'll add it to my list of "books to read" (which is way longer than I'd like to admit.) One of my favorite books on VN is "House on Dream Street" about an American woman who lived in Hanoi in the early nineties. I know the city so well, I could "see" the streets she talks about - plus she has described the culture so well, I think. I highly recommend it!

Just heard about the strength of the hurricane on the radio this morning - sounds pretty bad. I hope it doesn't hit FL too hard - I immediately thought of you and DJ (and I know there's at least one other person down there from this forum, but can't remember who.)

Good job on the avatar Sam! I like it!

Jeanie
