Yay for Isabelle!
Oh, Mom--you posted something. . .ok.

Yay for Isabelle.

Oh, ok Susan--you are very interesting. A wedding ring fund? Now that's practical. Glad he met you.

Lynne said...


OMG! I love Ovaltine. Hot please.

I like House too.

A pink pirate?

I'm NOT peeing in the woods. There could be ticks! I'll wear Depends first.

Kallen305 said...

Amen on the wanting of more land to protect. That is my goal too. I would like a bigger house with a lot of land that could never get into the hand of developers.

Very fun to read.

"Wun, Forwest, wun!"

(sorry. couldn't help myself)


Mel said...


I like barefoot too ;)

bruss1510 said...

WTG Isabelle! And congrats to the proud mommy!

What if photos of peeing in the woods get out? On someone's blog? Wow - this could be huge!

That one dollar coin must be a good luck piece. I used to have a "Lucky Lindy" coin when I was a kid that I totted around for good luck.

Mary said...

Congratulations to Isabelle (and you and Geoff, too)!

And who was the star of #33? A certain vet we know?


Susan Gets Native said...

Oh, yeah. I did have a bit about myself, didn't I?
Isabelle is GREAT.
Yep, I got me a GOOD MAN.

Isabelle is GREAT.
House curls my toes!
Dear, you will have to pee in the woods at least once, you know. Please don't do the Astronaut Diaper thing.

About 100 acres would do me just fine.

Everyone thinks they're a comedian.
: )

Isabelle says thank you. She thinks it is muy cool that someone in Peru thinks she did a good job.

If anyone takes photos of ANYONE peeing in the woods, her blogging privileges will be revoked. And that goes for sassy commenters, too.

Nope. Just change left over from the car wash.
My only lucky Anything is Lucky Birding Underwear.

Isabelle is GREAT.
That whole peeing in the woods thing was just too much. You bunch of worry-warts.


NatureWoman said...

Congratulations to Isabelle! Yay!
LOL Susan, 'do we mean bras or that exercise thing?'

NCmountainwoman said...

Congratulations to Isabelle! Yeah!

I had no idea they still made Ovaltine.

dguzman said...

Yay for Isabelle!
And like Lynne, I am NOT peeing in the woods! I've never had go so badly on a birding trip that I couldn't hold it.

Let's hope I didn't just curse myself.

Kyle said...

Hurray for Isabelle!! :)

Julie Zickefoose said...

OK. I am certifiable. Because when I read, "How many TV's do you have in the house," I thought they meant turkey vultures.
Earl lives at RAPTOR, right? Just set me straight.

And the WV pee GOD!

Mary said...

Hey! For the record, I didn't start the pee fiasco. That was Kathie Brown - she's the worry wart :o)
