Re: Calling me "Hon." Is there a protocol?

I don't see it as a big deal, really. If I were at a store and someone called me Blondie, yeah, I'd raise an eyebrow, or Shortie...chunky monkey...but who would do that, seriously. Hon, honey, sweetie, whatever, that doesn't bother me. I don't see it as a lack of disrespect when it's a term of endea...

Re: Catch all thread - talk or better yet show us

My opal is being sent to DK tomorrow to be reset into a pendant. I'd planned to send it to a different vendor, but the cost was too high, and even being a special piece I couldn't justify spending that much. He needs exact measurements to start the design process, so once he gets it we can get start...

Re: what are your dream sapphire rings?

I would love a picture of this face-up with a real sapphire, but just the idea of this ring makes my heart go all pitty patty http://www.greenlakejewelry.com/jewelryblog/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/st01.jpg http://www.pricescope.com/files/images/magicalpadring.jpg Is it this ring? http://www.greenla...

Re: Lady Gaga's Big 'Ole Heart Ering... Thoughts??

yeaaah not for me. To me regardless how well cut it is, it reminds me of a diamond version of a ring you could get at a carnival/fair or a trinket machine in one of those little plastic cup things. Like hello kitty should wear it. I saw a ring on FB that JA did, a little heart w/a...gosh, I forget n...

Re: Random pictures/stories of our furbabies

Home sick today from work. Opilio, Clementine and Goose took care of me. Well..Opilio apparently just sat on my head so I'm not sure how helpful that was but it's the thought that counts right?

Stringing snares for the shop. Taking a break to watch an episode or two of Walking Dead before he has to get ready for work.

Re: Is Valentine's Day a "Hallmark holiday"?

Jennifer, I feel that way about Christmas. We decorated a tree together for our first two Christmases together or so...after that it became "my" job to do the tree and decorate the house. I did it for a couple years and then that was the end of it. I got tired of harping-get the tree down ...

Re: Is Valentine's Day a "Hallmark holiday"?

I've never cared about Valentine's Day. We bought each other something our first three together-the 2nd one we got engaged on, so in *that* respect, we make a bigger deal about it. But it still amounts to "Hey, it's our engagement anniversary-can you believe we've been together this long?"...

Re: Random pictures/stories of our furbabies

JD texted a couple nights ago while he was on duty that he was bringing a cat home. They don't "technically" do stray pick up but when he's working and it's a cat, they end up at our house until my parents can come get them. Isn't she pretty? She's marked so crazy, like a raccoon mixed w/a...

Well perfect-his only concern was the natural beach, so we'll still keep it narrowed down to those two then!
