Talking Tell us about your avatar.....

There's probably a gazillion threads about this over the years..... Every now and then I wonder about profile pics and why y'all have chosen what you have, and what it means to you.

I'll start . Mine is a pic I took from the beach in Santa Barbara, CA. I was with my daughter and grandkids, we were laying on the beach and I just looked up and snapped a pic of the palm trees. I've changed my avatar a couple of times, but always go back to it, just 'cause I like it and it reminds me of that day at the beach.

Does anyone else want to share?

Mine is a Martha Washington plate by Ridgway Pottery.

I found Martha and George in perfect condition at the local flea market a couple of years ago for five bucks each.

Mine is our 4 pug babies sleeping on a futon I used to have next to my desk. they just happened to get into a position of oldest/largest to youngest/smallest one day. The black one was my special little boy, all the rest were/are Daddy's girls. Only have 2 left (the 2 in the middle) and they are both little old ladies at just over 15 and almost 15.

Mine is a pic from last summer. I had just graduated from our local community college and was fully expecting to go job hunting. At the time, my beard was nearly a foot and a half long, so I trimmed it back as you can see in my avatar.
Lo and behold, I was offered work as an instructor at the community college, and seein's as how no one has complained about my facial hair so far, I am letting it grow out again.
I used to be a racist, but I don't have much interest in it since Dale Earnhardt got killed.

My avatar is a picture of my beautiful Ashley. He was a lovely kitty and was as beautiful inside as he was outside. His mommy was a gorgeous grey tabby we called Sugar Mommy, which fit her perfectly because she was just about the best mother cat I've ever seen. Ashley's daddy? Hmmm? Absentee father but we are pretty sure he was the Siamese male that roamed the neighborhood.

As for my profile picture, it's a picture of our motorcycle, Old Blue, which takes us on many wonderful rides and adventures. It's a Harley that Glenn restored from being totally "toasted" after being in a fire. He bought it that way and made it brand new.

My avatar is a photo taken in a park in Montreal years ago. There is a park along the river with a pond that runs off onto a series of steps. I chose it because it is an interesting visual. Here's a more descriptive photo:

I think mine is self-explanatory

Mine is a picture of Teddy. He is Spike's dog. But I have to have my Teddy fix everyday. So Spike brings him up here every night and I get to spoil him rotten. He loves to jump up on my bed for his scratchies. He is four years old. He was just eight weeks when Spike bought him for Sandy, his wife. He is about four months old in the picture. Then his wife died. Without Teddy, I think Spike would be lost. He will never admit it, but that dog has saved him from a hurt of loneliness. I am forever grateful for Teddy and for giving Spike a reason to get up everyday since his wife died. That dog is so loved by everyone. He takes Teddy out four times a day for at least an hour. Regardless of the weather.

The previous picture I had there was one of me taken in 1998. If I put one up of me today, you wouldn't recognize me.
