More to pick from!
« on: July 02, 2009, 04:22:41 PM »
Hi everyone,

There is an old Dutch saying:  "it is cucumber season". 
This refers to the off season, slack period of not much going on. 

Not so in my gallery!!!

No ladies and gentlemen, plenty of cucumbers there, all very easy and a joy to restore!

Please, in your enthusiasm, don't forget the 2 orphans that are still waiting to be sent home:  Windland and Hillman are their names and there are 2 of each. 
These little mites have suffered through 2 hurricanes and have been waiting years now for a pair of loving eyes and hands to restore them... (violins in the background)

Thanks you,

Hannie

Hi Hannie

Since I have a third Hillman, if you'd like I'll take their other two "impossibles" and try to get all 3 done so the family can get their photos back.

Your pitch is working! And I've lost my mind!

Hugs

Hannie, what a hustler you are!  :funny: I have a feeling that there are a bunch of zucchini at the bottom of your basket with the cucumbers on top.

P.S. My cucumbers, unlike Hannie's, are the belchless variety!

I'm so happy to say that now there is only 1 orphan left (Windland), thanks to our beloved Glenna and Lurch!
On the down side, I may now officially be responsible for Glenna's rush upon her doom...

Margie your eyes are as green as my cucumbers (all the way to the bottom of the basket I'll have you know Missy)
What a nerve to suggest I'm selling zucchini for for cucumber!

Hannie, I like zucchini as much as cucumber.  We are looking for a good salesperson where I work.  Any interest?  :wnw:

There is no fun to be had in belchless cucumbers.

At least beans are more musical than belchless cucumber...

Dave, your statement about belchless cucumbers is so profound that I think it should be preceded by "Confucius says:"!

How'd we get from orphans to cucumbers?  I think I'll take the 3 Hillmans and go back to my padded room.  (Hannie, I can't believe you let me take those monsters.  You know the old OPR saying: "They didn't look that bad until I downloaded them."  Holy smoke!)

Have a great 4th, USA OPR-sters!
