    Hi Nanci nice to see you stopping by. My grand snake has gotten larger but doesn't have much sense.

    Look at my website!! It pretty much tells the story of my 2011 breeding season. I hatched two, well three I guess, really incredible babies. Plus the cutest little kinked baby ever, Krinkle. Krinkle just went to work with me last week so I could x-ray him, just out of curiosity. Three people who have never held a snake before held him. Who could be afraid of a little 7 gram crippled pink snake??

    Fort Tort is out of control. I wonder if I can get a picture of the whole thing. I'll try! I have the Water Garden, and this spring I built a bog garden around two sides of it. I've got my little swimming pool, so I can dive in when I'm having hotflashes (love that...) I've super-expanded the patio, and just finished building a path connecting it to the house.

    You know how Facebook (or The Devil as we call it at cornsnakes.com :-) is rolling out the new profile features next week, Friday maybe, including the Timeline? I discovered that if you become a Facebook developer (super easy, just Google it) you can have the Timeline early. So for a week I've been working on adding stuff to it.

    So, I have about 80 snakes now, counting babies for sale and a lot that are herre on breeding loans. The two pigeons, Dill and Milly. My pitbull Bella. Isabel the bearded dragon. A couple other lizards. Fish and frogs outside.

    S&W .22 in "Urban Cowboy" (cowboy action for people just shooting a .22) and Steel Plate, which is a one on one triple elimination whoever knocks down 10 plates on two racks plus one stop target wins that round. I pretty much love it.

    so what did Krinkle's xray look like? a break or what?
    the majority of your snakes are corn snakes? Who knew they had so many colors!

    That is fun stuff! I shot on the Sheriffs Dept. team back in the day, takes lots of time and effort to "get good" but well worth it.

    well there was one unexpected consquence of my move : my writing
    I used to write on the train trip home(about 45 min). bit harder now that I'm walking (45 min) or taking the bus (1o min with about 10 min of walking).
    Probably need to establish a set time - will be easier as I get more settled (busy filling out furn. lease apps).
    Nanci - great to see you back - same with CC - Hang in there.
    Ps. I wuz evil and changed my avatar - having a pic of rt 66 in the desert while living in Upstate NY didn't make sense

    I'm meeting with my property manager today to sign the papers and formulate a plan to get my condo rented. She's very experienced, comes recommended by a friend.

    Best of luck, Trek -- a good property manager can be invaluable. Ours not only found us good tenants, but also helped locate and reunite us with items that did not make it onto the moving truck and coordinated/oversaw repairs when our foundation leaked.

    omg, omg, omg I'm a land lord. Yes she's very experienced, very direct ("this is what kind of disaster can happen, this is how we cover you, you need to anticipate this possibility, we do this"), covers all the bases.

    I like her staff (one full time employee and her husband). She came well recommended by a friend I've known a long time in Aikido. Now I need to clean as I've never cleaned before. and a lot of other stuff. Forms to get, insurance to call ...

    You are living in my home town! Hope you have warm winter clothing...

    My older son is 29 today. It really doesn't seem possible!
    The day he was born had an auspicious start. We were pulled over by the AHP on I-10, at 6:30 AM on a Saturday morning, for speeding, to get to the hospital. I was hemorrhaging and the cop said, "Take her to county hospital!" None of the, "I'll give you an escort, follow me," when we told him we were headed to a different hospital. DH just put the car in drive and sped off.
    When we got there, as we walked into the elevator, a guy pushing one of those food carts with all of the trays, rammed it into my back and legs. Just barely, but enough for me to scream, "Get f***ed!"
    He's turned out to be a great person, despite this!
