By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

    @mayk - You just had to write it twice to convince yourself. ;) ^^

    By default my avatar is laughter and coincidentally I enjoy laughing.
    It's such a great medicine. Thanks.

    @Oluraddy_4real - You can keep the default avatar, or you can change it now you have 2 stars. (Go to your profile, and click on the picture.) Let me know if you need any help.

    @Zom what I had write twice? is it my avatar?
  • Oluraddy_4realOluraddy_4real Posts: 29 ✭✭
    Hi Lynne, I did clicked on the picture but nothing moved.

    Also I can't seem to find my way to send my Skype ID via private message to Lynne.
    Could you kindly show me the way around this neighborhood?.

    @mayk - Yes, you wrote the same message twice.

    @Oluraddy_4real - I guess you've tried to change your avatar picture on a mobile device and not a computer. ^^
    For sending private messages, look for the icon of a little envelop on your screen. It should be at the bottom if you're on a mobile device, or top right on a computer.

    @ Zom. Thanks for a warm response ;) My laptop is bad at the moment, guess I would have to wait till I can get a computer to private chat Lynne and probably change the avatar. :neutral:
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 3,080 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Oluraddy_4real - Or maybe you could ask a friend to use his computer to check if you could then change your avatar and also send private messages.

    I've just sent you a private message. Let's see how your current computer behaves. ^^

    @Zom - Thanks for the help, you are nice and I appreciate that about you. I use mobile and not a computer because it's bad and I am yet to get another one.

    Wow, you painted that yourself? That is very impressive. I don't have any talents like that, but I really wish I did, as I would love for people to be able o get enjoyment from the work that I have done.

  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 3,080 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @balu - Don't you think he would be even more cool if he could develop a sense of humour?

    @Zaki here is my guess: Because three is a cardinal number and green leaves remind to an active tree. So for you life is very important and you are an optimistic guy.
  • ZakiZaki Posts: 159 ✭✭
    Very well. @Paulette

    @Yulia this cat is very self-conscious and confident, is she the queen of the three or is it a he? :)
  • YuliaYulia Posts: 50 Inactive
    @Paulette he is shy with other two cats, never fights with them but he can scratch or bite me☺

    My cat sometimes scratches and bites too, but I think she is trying to play. I really don't think she is doing it on purpose to hurt me.. she is such a lovely cat, and she would never want to hurt me on purpose I don't think.
