Re: 1190: "Time"

Lot's of folks popping in, how fun. (No need to pop back out again, BTW.)

I got to see an actual Baobab tree. I didn't get a picture, but it looked like it knew what it was doing.

Your dog is a lucky dog. Some dogs get a cone. Oh, he's done time in the cone. The problem is, his cone has to be huge, and even then he can get to his back-end.
