So I went back and looked at the avatars of the moderators. They are a little bigger. I never noticed.

Did you know about this?

When I first joined DC, it was my first forum. I realized that I needed a screen name and came up with Zhizara.

Then I realized that I would need an avatar.

I had thought of the hindu goddess with all the arms doing different things, but that reminded me of me when I was working and I was already retired by then.

When I saw the picture of the happy elephant in the waterfall, it seemed so full of the feeling of pure joy that I decided it would make a great avatar.

If I ever see a hindu goddess with her hands full of cooking utensils, I might make a change.

Well you are retired and you cancelled your plans for that yard sale. So start reading!

Love it, GG! I put it in my faves.

Still enjoying coming to this thread and reading about the avatars, too! :-)

Mine is a throwback to when we were supposed to have a "food related" avatar. And Spongebob is just such a joyful little guy, he had to be in there.

At one point I had a bunch of saskatoon berries, but SOME people kept figuring they were blueberries.
