Opinions by our own 'King of Ping'
The guy's good, folks!

Thanks, Mixer!

1) Click on the graphic to open the Calendar.
2) Once there you can click on any month and even click to the right to go into next year. Once you are in the month that you joined FR you will need to click on the number in the calendar and then an add item screen will come up.
3) In the next box enter your name in the "Calendar Text" field and then click on submit.
4) If any of the screens fail to load simply click on refresh in your browser and that will usually fix it.
5) If all else fails or simply if you want me to do this for you send me an FReepmail and I will gladly do it for you. ~Mixer

Hi, Dansy. I didn't mean to make you cry....but I still do, too, when I think of some of ours who have crossed that Rainbow Bridge. Daisy sent me those three sweet graphics to start the Angel part with.

I'm glad you are feeling better today than yesterday and last night. Hope you get your Domania graphics returned in full today.

Good morning, F'stix - thank you again today for the graphics site and midis and the cute Christmas gifs. We could get used to this - you know that's why Aquamarine started posting music, don't you? She loved the way you posted music with graphics, and you 'went AWOL' on us for awhile!

Wonderful thread, Billie. Yoda is almost pleased. I don't think he's ever been completely pleased, so don't take it personally - we don't.

I kinda thought today's thread would be extra sweet and lovely, and my hunch was right. Beautiful all the way through, but especially love those little kittens in their stockings.

Good morning to our Hostess Angels, and to all Freepers.

I've heard that St. Peter had a doggie door installed on the Pearly Gates a long time ago, and when our little animal loves arrive, he just grins and waves 'em on through.

My neighborhood doesn't look quite like the one above, but it feels almost like it...finally got some stormy wether...brrrrrr.

Hi, Severa, thank you! I'm glad to see Shag here today, too! I sometimes can't tell a Doberman from a Rottweiller, except I think Rotts ARE much stockier and don't have the long pointed nose of a Dobe. This one looks like BOTH!

Hi, Pippin - everyone missed you yesterday, including me. Thanks for checking in with me via FReepmail and late on yesterday's thread. Hope you get your phone line for computer soon. Can't you use a connector that has a place for two lines to plug in though?

Wow, Billie! First of all, I love what you did with the beautiful ornament Gail found! And then, I love the opener! It's awesome. As always, DD's grandson is so precious! The pets are all so neat! And, best of all, my Keisha looks fantastic with her Christmas finery! Thank you! You obviously put so much love and work into this thread. Kudos (very big ones) to you!

Budge, now don't you wish you had sent Queen Annie's picture in in time to have her all dressed up for Christmas, even though SHE would likely not impressed? Of course that would make it even funnier.

Super job, Billie! Excellent work in getting the pets to pose in their stocking caps and antlers. :-)

So, you won't hear critical comments or snide remarks from me today.

Yes, really! I have a feeling you don't believe me. :)

Unfortunately, there was only ONE John Bonham.

All others try to SOUND like JB.

He revolutionized rock drumming.
