    Finally! I guess my lecture about orchid-irresponsibility got to my dad. He asked the guy to bring in one of the flowers, so here's a pic. I have NO IDEA why my dad said the flowers were purple. Is this even an orchid? [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Wow Michelle...beautiful flower! It doesn't look like any den I've ever seen but, again, I'm far from any expert. I defer to Merlin! But that should be awsome in bloom whatever it is! What kind of roots does this plant have?

There's no dog quite like a wire fox. Everyone who knows me, knows my dog. He makes people laugh everywhere he goes. I have a ton of pics of him...my father calls him "The World's Most Photographed Dog." lol But he has a very nice smile so I can't resist a photo op.

    Hi Michelle,

    Do a search for Epidendrum radicans, it looks very much like this species.

    Regards,

    Christer

    Thanks Christer,

    You're absolutely right. It's an orange red Epidendrum radicans of some sort, I'm not sure if it's a common or other variety, but that looks like the right ID! You win...the admiration of everyone else here. Yeah, that's it! From what I'm reading, I'm going to have plenty of these guys to give out later if it does well.

    Cheers!

    Suzanne, we had Penny during my growing-up years and he was still going strong when I moved out after college. We'd gotten him cheap from a breeder because he was oversized (think Kerry Blue in fox terrier drag). He also had enormous teeth - like one of those cuddly science fiction creatures that suddenly open up a mouth of 6-inch fangs. As soon as somebody would start saying how cute and fluffy he looked, I'd peel back his lip and watch their faces - great fun [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]. Of course, he was a typical terrier - fearless and totally insane! He was great dog for a boy.

    I like your hands...

    They look well kept, and your nails are trimed nicely.

    I suggest gel nails, how fun, and with a design!

    Parasuco,

    Thanks for the compliment. All I do is cut them. No trimming, no primping, no nail polish. I'm a computer for godsakes!

    And, I'm too old for you! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
