Huh? Okay I am so puzzled here. Not fair. WHAT is going on here??? Jack R. said you revealed this to us. YOU DID? I think not?

I am a SCORPIO and can RUN with the BEST of them but I just don't get it!

I also noticed that you are being NIIIIICE and quiet here. Letting us SCRAMBLE.

So. What gives? We are all adults here. (Except for the little tiny kids on this web site! HeeHee)

WHAT IS THIS? I'm staying attached in case you tell us! :)))

OMG, I would never have guessed it was a Rhino image. The ears are incredibly 3 dimensional, giving the appears they are recessed. The skin textured is wonderful, too.
