“Raining gemstones”


Description from Steph: If it could only rain like this I would be happy. I have had a horrible week for vacation. I will have a mud pond in the backyard instead of an inground fire pit now. At least my dogs will enjoy it. This has to be the worst summer in history. Haven't been to the beach once and I LOVE the beach so much. I am sad but at least I have all my beads to keep me sane for now. LOL

    First of all, Steph, this is a gorgeous pick, rain or not! :D Second, sorry about all the rain on your vacation week. Were you at home or had you traveled to the beach? What state do you live in? I looked at your profile, but it didn’t say. :D

    I live in Rhode Island, we have a beach house in East Matunuck. It has been raining all day and I’ve been curled up with with my dogs all day. I wish I went to Cali to see my brother but he and his wife would have been working and I wouldn’t know what to do with his kids all day. I should’ve moved a long time ago.

    Sorry to hear about your rainy vacation Steph but I know how you feel. We’ve been having rain, fog, clouds and humidity, etc for the past two weeks or more. I can’t wait to see the sun again someday soon I hope. BTW this is a lovely pick.

    I love rain but not when I could be on the beach! I’m so sorry the weather handed you a lemon! But it really is a pretty pick and hanging out with the puppies is not too bad! Brighter days on the way I’m sure! Hang in there, girl!

    For those of you who read my comment above and then read Steph’s profile — sure, NOW it says where she lives!!! LOL Just didn’t want you gals thinking I can’t read……

    Also, Steph, I have a question about your profile photo. I know it is one of your foster dogs, but I don’t understand why it just looks like a dog’s head with no body. What am I not getting about it? LOL Help!!! ;-) Of course, if the dog IS just a head with no body, my apologies. It would make him hard to place in a home, though. Dear God, somebody stop me……

    To Lynn Eileen Chicky. The dog in the pic is my bull terrier Snoopy. He took my Aunt’s bag off the chair and started walking around with it, so we called him the purse snatcher. He looked guilty when I caught him so I took this pic.

    That explains so much!!! I looked at it and wondered if it was one of those painted rock pieces I have seen on TV. ROTFLOL :-)
    You are right! He does look guilty….bad doggy!

    Very nice pick. I would like some rain, but if we can’t have real rain, I sure would like some of this LB rain. ;)

    I have never seen my cat look guilty. I’m not sure if cats just have no conscience, or just always believe they are right. :P

    Steph, thank you so much for explaining the story behind Snoopy’s photo!!!!! Now it makes sense when I look at it! You have NO idea how many times I have stared at that poor little dog trying to figure out just what I was looking at! ROTFLOL I even wondered the same thing as Harriet, that it might be one of those Sandcast statues of a dog’s head. LOL After I read that it was one of your own dogs, I ruled that option out.

    It IS funny how dogs can look guilty at the appropriate time, but cats seem to have NO concept of guilt or they just don’t care!!! :D My money is on the latter. LOL

    Lynn, I had the same problem with the picture of Snoopy!! To me it looked like a curled up guinea pig in a bowl with a really big head (my apologies to Snoopy)! That’s the problem with tiny pictures. I feel much better about the picture now. Thanks for being the brave one to ask about it! :-D
    Steph, so sorry that rain has messed up your vacation; I hate when that happens! :-( But I really like this pick…very cool!! :-D

    Snoopy’s pix is one of the many reasons I’ve asked Steve if there will be a way to enlarge our photos someday — like we can when we look at the beads or the pieces in the Design Gallery. That will be SO much nicer!!!!!! I’ve even tried using a magnifying glass next to my computer screen, but it doesn’t help much. LOL

    Now that I know it is a purse in front of Snoopy, the photo makes sense to me. Before, I couldn’t figure it out — I guess because you can’t see any of his legs in the photo. ;-)
