Well, you've read the notes, the notes were my beloved (sorry this), and now it is time for you to post until the beloved cows come home.

You should have heard the commotion when Buster saw the deer peering at him through the window!

Dora the Explorer dolls get controversial new look
Dora the Explorer is getting a makeover.

The cutsie cartoon character is ditching her shorts and the neat little backpack for what her creators are calling a "new
fashionable look."

Although the new Dora will not be officially unveiled until fall, Nickelodeon and Mattel released a silhouette of the revamped figure that shows her with long locks, a short skirt and pointed ballet pumps.



Creators of Dora the Explorer, a favorite character among preschoolers that teaches kids English and Spanish, say they are just making her move with the times.

The tweenage Dora will live in the big city, attend middle school and have a new wardrobe and accessories.

Well, if she's to have no back-pack, she needs a purse.

Our modern girls needs something to hold her condoms.

1:30 seems to be my weekend time to quit doing things for the day.  The new U2 cd is really good,  after which l had to listen to Jeff Beck's  Guero  cd, also really good.   Then to really confuse my neighbors I put on BK's Prime Time Musicals.  Absolutely wish Guy Haines has a new cd in his future.

One night when I was driving through Forrest Hills up by Sacramento, a deer was in the middle of the road looking straight into the headlights.  The day before when we arrived at our friends house, he told us what to do because the area is filled with deer.  To just turn off our headlights, stop the car, and wait.  I was by myself and really unsure of what happens.  When I turned the lights back on, it was gone, never drove at night again.

small memory from living in Arizona.  Maybe 1961, we lived in one of 4 houses that were next to a radio station.  I never saw anyone going in or out of the building, there were no alarms, or security patrols, or dead bolts on doors in those days.  But I do remember looking in the windows and seeing 100's and 100's of records, stacks and stacks just collecting dust.  The station had closed,  they locked the doors, and just left everything inside.

Which reminds me...

50th Anniversary Barbie goes on sale today.  Quantities are limited.

I'd get one for Fletcher, but he'd probably chew her head off.

The deer couldn't have cared less about all the filliBuster.  He (or was it a she?) just stood and stared for a long time, and then turned and sauntered off.  Very unusual, since there are typically a group of deer together, and this one was going it alone.

No, Boots is going to be her pimp daddy, and Swiper their dealer.  They're both getting makeovers, too, with lots of bling.  And Swiper is going to sport a Barbie tattoo on his left arm.

I spent most of yesterday off-line.  I was waiting to get called in to work, but of course the lass who was supposed to be calling out didn't.

Not that the time was wasted.  I decided it was time to get a database going on all the cookbooks I've got in my library.  I spent the day hauling stacks from my room to the den, did the data entry, then hauled back and got another stack.  331 titles so far, and I've still got several shelves to go.

Oh, and I am already at the Birmingham airport - which, apparently, is the largest airport in Alabama.  Hmmm..  -At least according to the airport's website.

Of course, since I went ahead and decided to get to the airport a little earlier than usual, the US Airways check-in desk was (still) closed.  It turned out their computer system was down - at least the one here in BHM.  After standing in line for about 20 minutes, they finally opened up... And the USAirways staff started writing(!) out the tickets and boarding passes, and checking everyone in via the flight manifests.  Very old school. ;) And slow. :-\  *And the line was about 30 deep by the time I had my boarding passes.

In any case, I still made it to my gate in plenty of time for my flight's 8:04am departure.  This may be Alabama's largest airport, but I think the walk from the tickets desks to the gates is only about 600 feet.

DR Michael S and bk - As DR DER BRUCER already pointed out, there is no way on the current board to have any newly uploaded avatars show up "large".

*And if you had read the various posts on this very subject by myself, DR Ben and DR DER BRUCER over the past couple of months, you would have already known that.  Just sayin'... ;)

Although, regardless of the "hour", the board's clock/server also seems to be ahead a few minutes (too).

There is no Circuit City in Rehoboth Beach.
