    Do we change avatars at New Year's?

    I may have no choice. Jim

    Sounds like a good tradition to start. New avatars for new years.

    Yes, but beware

    The rules specifically state that JimC's avatar be changed to a picture of the truthful result of what transpired in the "rocket powered turtle" experiment. My sources tell me the tragedy was on the scale of the last shuttle disaster and that Jim is currently in hiding as the result of a very angry mob of Canadien PETA members. (Think: villagers in the movie "Frankenstein").

    Happy New Year, Jim. Keep the avatar. It's a classic.

    Oh, okay. If I must!

    Good point, Army. Your's threw me off - "who is this guy? Oooooooh." Ya got me! Funny, but I never noticed how much attention I pay to avatar's untill you mentioned it.

    Now the question is - is it any more difficult with the same background?
    I ..... need ..... DIRT!!!!!

    I knew the truth would finally come out. May that poor turtle rest in peace. o O ( or is that pieces?...).

    Thanks for the chuckle.

    There is an override rule for changing classic avatars. (How do I know it exists? I just made it up). Guru and Jim are definitely exempt. I'm gonna miss the smiling, waving man with the afro.

    Bob

    P.S. My avatar will be changing soon as I have just filed my "manditory avatar change date extension" paperwork.

    Ahhhh - that's what I get for degenerating from a relatively steady poster to a part-time lurker in Passion...
