    LOOK at those big brown eyes... You can go far with eyes like that. When I was a kid I always wanted blue eyes until I found out what you could get with big browns.LOL

    Tim,
    I disagree about the picture. I think it is a very nice looking cross and there is not a trace of zombie in it! Nice to put a face with the name.
    How about the bench72 name? How did you pick that? It always makes me think about gym and lifting weights...

    ok, I'd like to think it was because I can lift that much weight... but unfortunately not!

    actually it's because when I first logged on to the internet and the forums etc etc... and when I put up a profile, I had a picture of me sitting on a bench... and being a 1972 baby, thought i'd stick that on there as well..

    Default Time's flying!

    Yikes! I was looking at the calendar, and there are only a few days left to get our entries in. Thank you McJulie for making that candycorn orchid available--what could be more perfect this time of the year? Perhaps you could also provide a spider web and a big fat spider on it?

    Diane, if you're not too busy today, I'd love to hear more about your visit with Tim (and what you found out about him!). I think we need to draw a sharper focus.

    And I'm still watching that phal!!

    Okay - while I have a desire for my own entry to be the winner, it wouldn't be sporting of me to keep what I know about Tim a secret from the rest of you...


    (well there may be a few things I keep secret, just to add to the mystique!)




    Describe Tim: Wonderful sense of humor. Always a smile, a laugh. Very kind. Deeply devoted to his partner. LOVES ORCHIDS. Loves his dogs. Smart - don't let him kid you about that, he's one smart guy. Good sport! LOVES ORCHIDS. (did I mention that already?) Loves Paphs (this demonstrates his good taste!). Likes to enjoy a good brew or two (or three) and also enjoys good wine. Drives like an Aussie (Aiiiiyeee!!!!). Has lovely dark brown eyes and the best smile! (I wanted to adopt him, and Steve too). Great Friend. And is in love with paph philippinenese.

    So come on! Get those entries in!
    If you don't want to try a picture, give Julie a good title and I'll bet she can come up with a wild avatar to go with it!!!!

    I want to play, but because of my play, I don't get home in time to really do anything interesting on the 'puter. My show opens on Friday. It will be over next week. Any extending of the deadline a wee little bit? I just have not had a second, but that little orange orchid.

    Cheers!
