    Hi, Shnootie!

    What a pleasant surprise to find you post. I really appreciate your kind words and ITA with your sentiments about positive reinforcement.

    Also am considering going vegetarian myself. I thought I would miss meat, but since I have cut back on it so drastically anyway, I am finding (shock of shocks) that I am just as happy with an all-vegetable dinner. Still thinking it over, though. I'll let you know if I take the complete plunge. (I love soy and tempeh, so I'm more than halfway there, dontcha think?!)

    The pix --with you and Bunny, Velvet, and Bunny with Peachy are so wonderful! Thanks for sharing!! Bunny and Velvet (gorgeous coat!) are just too cute for words . . . and I can tell they are both as sweet as can be. I am very sorry that Peachy is gone now, hon. (I can see she wasn't a parakeet--my dd had two. What type of bird was she?)

    Spotted your ticker! Woo Hoo! Congrats on your weight loss! You're making great progress and in such a short time! Nice going, hon!

    Hugs,
    Dale
