Muppetgirl, this is a total tangent, but I've been meaning to tell you how much I love your avatar. One of our dogs is a collie-St. Bernard mix, and when she goes too long between grooming, her hair gets crazy wild and from a young age, we always called her "Muppet" as her nickname (her actual name is Delia).
She's just as likely to come when called "Muppetgirl" as she is "Delia." Here she is in her Muppety glory last summer:
Oh my goodness!!! You "stole" my Cash! He's an Aussie/St Bernard and looks remarkably similar (at least that I can see) to your girl!
So, I realized that I was a bit vague about myself in my original post. Lol.
A little more on the "personal" side...
I was married at 20, had my son at 21, divorced at 24, and I've been pretty much single since. In June of last year, I met my boyfriend and we started dating. He's everything my ex-DH wasn't and I know I want to spend the rest of my life with him. My son adores him and my family loves him. He was friends with my oldest brother in high school (they're both 43). He is a former Marine who served in Somalia and Kuwait.
As for animals other than my beastly, we have Cash, my 6yo Aussie/St Bernard that I've had since he was 10-months-old; Abby, our five-month-old Aussie/border collie/lab puppy that we got for Cash for Christmas; and Cosmo, my boyfriend's nine-month-old orange classic tabby domestic shorthair who we rescued from outside a bar back in August when he was six-weeks-old.
I was going to start a garden this year, but that might be on hold temporarily. Robert and I found a house we absolutely adore (right now we're "renting" from his mother...yuck!). It's on an acre and it's a two-story three bedroom, two bathroom home.
