hi DAFF,

thanks.

No, my avatar isn't a garden ornament, but there IS a story to my avatar 8)

I have been an active participant in a 4wd forum for a few years and had never had an avatar, so last year I set about getting one. This is how I did it (this is my post on the forum):

I had to shop this morning, but I haven't washed the laundry because the gardens don't need watering - so I raked my cleanest pair of dirty jeans out of the dirty clothes basket, gave them a sniff just to check they were respectable enough :oops: and a few vigorous shakes to iron out the crinkles, gathered my callico shopping bags and headed to town.

My other half has shopped for the past few weeks because I've been under the weather and I was chuffed to find additions to the shelves like certified free range eggs and barn laid eggs endorsed by the RSPCA - the world is looking brighter with happy hens :D

I got to thinking (which can be dangerous on a Wednesday) - maybe those forum gooses like crooze, offtrack and crew :wink: are half right about tagging me a hippy :shock:

Although I'm not a fair dinkum hippy cos I shower twice a day and have never been on the dole - I'm just a little bit crazy, a little bit feral, a little bit alternative, and a fair bit green 8)

Ok, I'll get to the point, but you should know that it takes a woman 4 paragraphs to say what a man would in one short disjointed sentence......

I've been here three and a half years and it's about time I had an avatar. So I thought.....let's have a competition - these clever computer geeks should be able to come up with something neat.

So how about it? Can you lot find or design me an appropriate avatar based on what you know about me......

And keep it clean!

Oh, and frogs are a general indicator of a reasonably healthy environment, so a happy frog will definitely get a good look in.

Hop to it :D


Well, Daff, you did ask :wink:

There were some great entries, but I liked this frog. It looked like it was an indoor ornament and had messy paraphenalia as a backdrop, so I asked if someone could give the frog a plain background, and.....wallar !! I had an avatar that I was very happy with 8)
