    As requested by ilovecarlos, here are some more pics of Bailey.

    Here, as you could see, she has taken a down a huge Grizzly Bear.

    Here, she has made a Bear Rug out of the Grizzly to sleep on. :)

    Just was the last comment, but I clicked it as its answer both in its way.



    Fee, if I had an issue with you or anyone I would say so directly. Like I wrote only an email off the TW page, I address things directly if I feel the need to, or wrote directly to TW on their comments, etc. page as I said.

    And I never try to be rude to someone, and I never call names to someone because what would it serve. It would serve nothing to you, and certainly nothing to me. It is just not my way, and never on this board have I tried to (or any other board) or would do anything to anyone that way. It just doesn't make sense to me real time or otherwise.

    I have been on this thread thanks and chatted. My message was short because there was not much to say. It was subjective because the subject was one thing, and I addressed that. One thing. I don't argue, and I don't need or have to make side jokes or comments to achieve that. Such things, any thing argumentative, I just don't consider it important and would not do so. More important are to get along, and understand, and for me to ask why you or anyone else felt I was rude. I did something you thought wrong, and I ask why or try to understand so as to correct that. Why would I put you on ignore? Where I am from it is most important to learn from any problem and to try to ask why it happened, and discuss it and make sure even if only from my side that it doesn't happen again( to say anything if ONLY to make sure it doesn't happen again). I would never in real time or on a board try to cause a problem. It is counter productive to everything I believe in, in life. So again, I said and meant I apologize if you thought me rude, but such wasn't the case, it was not intentional.

    To you and Topaz both, I do not need you to email me back. My email is public, and just like I said above, I welcome anyone who has something to say to me, or anything in response to anything I say because I am not all knowing, all correct, or anything like that, and I realize misunderstandings can happen. I wasn't trying to be rude to Fee, I wasn't trying to be rude to you. I expressed my thoughts. I didn't use (and would never) use profanity, calling names or anything like that) But if you take it that way even after I have explained, then that's something I cannot control. I can't do anything about it but apologize as I have if you want to have problem still. I have no problem with either of you, but you continue to make it public. I response as I would just as if you were standing in front of me, honestly, sincerely, and peacefully.

    If you want to take my words honestly giving as insulting, and meant to me not insulting. I think there is a variance of how people see words and gestures. I have told you how it was meant, you want to thnk someone is insulting you....??? I would only ask why when I've said it's not so. I won't abase myself. I've apologized even on how you perceived I was wrong, but I won't reply to how you still think someone is trying to be rude to you and it just isn't there. It NEVER was there. So. I mean what do you want?

    PS and Clearly there: I do not have your personal email address. On your profile it is a link to click to send email, but by clicking I don't get your email address. Please as I made a statement to Fee and was giving a compliment to you and explaining something you misunderstood in what I said..why would I need a reply or anything? That I don't understand. So I didn't write you personal as if I had your email. Yes, it was beendet, a tense of finished in English translation. Again, I say, if you want to keep combing it with a fine tooth you certainly can, but what is the point. There was not rude intention, that was only perception, and apology even if it was so. So it seems you two are keeping it going. And it is beendet and no offense was meant.

    Thanks for your reply. Clearly it was a total misunderstanding. I appreciate that you took the time to explain everything very precisely. I apologize that this conversation has taken so much of your time. :)

    Thx Drak & Topaz for the re-welcome :). I like my pie warm, and with Ice-Cream AND Cream :)

    Really, Meg? I would have thought your, ahem, natural beauty would certainly outshine such gaudy self-indulgent overpriced trinkets?

    *cough, cough, splutter*

    Argh! Now you made me hungry!!!

    Sigh. Sweden is going to play Israel away in the first round of the Davis Cup next year, and if we win (good chance) we'll most likely will have to face... Argentina. again. Away. Anyone wanna bet on the chance that they are going to choose a fast court surface this time? :)

    Sigh....NOW what did I do???........rolling eyes

    See the bold in your first sentence above? See the bold in your last sentence above? Now, don't you think using the term "certain others" would've sufficed in your first sentence above versus needlessly dragging someone else's name into this little spat that you are having with "certain others?" That "offensive" re-post contained the words of others--not mine; big difference. Listen, I'm not saying there is, but: if there just happens to be a particular mod who may or may not go out of his/her way to "86" my posts, that is my problem, not your problem, so please do me a favor, leave my name out of it, and let me get into hot water on my own; believe me, I'm quite capable of that without your help. Furthermore, a word to the wise: I wouldn't cite any moderator's names if I were you; particularly in this case; besides, it's not necessary. To recap, I think wording your above quote instead with "certain posters" and "a moderator" would've sufficed, thank you.

    Now, if you don't mind, let me go back to being my usual *cough* "offensive" self: :rolleyes:





    Great BLUEBERRY PIE! Now: [size=+1] Remember the Al a Mode![/size]

    malakas, I'm including a reference to explain the lame pun above (click on below):

    My mind still boggles from the thought of it. And people say that buying jeans are expensive here in Sweden. Atleast they cost below $100 here...

    If I ever did spend that kind of $ on a pair of jeans I certainly wouldn't tell anyone...believe me. There are a lot better things to do with $280

    Ok! :)

    Argh! You changed the text!!! :)

    Btw, It's annoying that I don't remember all the TW people's real names when I click around in Facebook. So... you'll have to add me instead. Well. Not _you_, but the others :)

    I like to think it does, but everyone needs a little distraction now and then.

    Lakoste - I love the fact that you have a puppy and you're getting married. It just melts be all over.

    Well, it is the end of the day during the last school day in September...do you think my map rack is fixed? NO!!!

    And, I just remembered today, while I was pushing my piano across the room, that the piano dolley I ordered two years ago...never came in.

    *sigh*

    It is most definitely sangria time!

    Thanks you guys for all the compliments, I'm pretty psyched since it is my first dog, and it was a surprise for my fiancee, who has been bugging me to get one for a while now. :)
    Choosing a good name was quite a difficult task...We had millions of names, ranging from Sputnik to Aloisius (Both my choices:lol:). We eventually picked Loki (one of her choices;)), and I think it fits well.
    It is a horrible picture in the sense that it doesn't show his true cuteness:D
    Yea...my friends bag on me constantly for doing all this, but I like it.

I say bah! Next year I'll take first...he/she beat me by 1/2 and inch...but the judges were men and WE ALL Know that they can't judge size or distance right? I mean this----- is NOT 8 inches!!!!!!!!! BAH!

    Well, it took less than a month, but we knew it was only a matter of time...yes, today a student had a potty accident in my room. On my floor. *sigh* Mondays!!!

    But I *also* had a 1st grader declare that the song I was teaching was 'super fabulous'!!! So, now that is my new catch phrase..."That forehand is *superfabulous*!"
