Laura E. Swan 2/15/2010 4:32:39 PM

Hi Tess!!! Nice to see you!!! :D

I am so out of the loop that I do not know where you went or why. I just now read you saying you hand injuries to your fingers/nails and thumb? What happened? Car accident?


On the lighter side, this cutie does not look like he got this treat from a wild hickory nut tree! I see caramel or nougat holding that walnut together!!

What have you to say??? Are you by chance feeding him Christmas candies?! HA! So funny! I hope he has dental! HA!

Still laughing! So precious!

-Laura #8384891

Tess L. Yee 2/16/2010 6:02:57 AM

Thank you thank you thank you! I really appreciate all the great comments!

Candy? Are you KIDDING? No WAY! That's just half a walnut, straight from a bag of Diamond brand walnuts. Believe me, if there was caramel on that nut, I would have eaten it long before Faux got to it!

(finger injury due to crazy squirrel fight, but all healed now...except the scar) #8386354

Nadine A. Lewis 2/17/2010 9:44:36 AM

Mark Dodge 2/22/2010 1:25:36 PM

Oh Mark, I only serve the best nuts, so you would definitely keep your eyes peeled for my arrival! This gal knows my car, and usually comes over to greet me...well, she comes over to beg for nuts. #8409463
