  1. I don’t come on often! But remember your support from back in the day and it’s nice to see you’re still active! 🙂 thank you.

  2. I remember the days of black light posters. That certainly is a beautiful spring green!

    Weather depending, about one more week for your mom’s daffodils. The stalks have grown taller and the buds are nice and fat now. One of my projects yesterday morning was burying a skunk that had been hit in the road out front. He was a handsome fellow, and looked pretty healthy otherwise.

    • She has to get in a certain place under the Christmas lights for the the lights to combine to have enough ultraviolet light to make her nails glow. We have a few daffodils blooming. It gets well below freezing on clear nights. Thanks, Lavinia.

      • I’m not surprised. They are probably in the middle of updating or adding some new feature that will annoy me.

  3. Needless to say our haunted trail is covered in UV light to pop all our props out of the darkness – this green effect is really cool – assume it is a blacklight sensitive nail polish or maybe your own concoction. Flourescent marker innards (or Mr. Clean) dropped in water is also a good way to get the effect. Yes, I had to reread your last line twice to get it – very clever.

    • I’m happy you got it. Laurie didn’t know they would floss (like teeth I suppose) under the Christmas lights combining to create UV. But it’s cool. She was just trying to get a bold, sparkling green for spring. Thanks, Brian

    • Thanks, Deborah. Her nails are in a state of vibronic excitement. No hydrogen peroxide was harmed in the making of those chemiluminescent-like nails.

  4. Ooh fun! Your nails or someone else’s? I just got my own nails done. I’m wearing OPI Peace, Love & OPI (my all time favorite nail color that of course OPI discontinued but fortunately the salon had it) it’s a blue-purple metallic shade.

    • Laurie’s nails. It never fails that you have a favorite of anything and it’s discontinued. We just went through that with some of Laurie’s favorite makeup. We ended up getting the closest substitute because their was none of the original available anywhere on the planet. Thanks, JYP.

      • The one, in particular, is a L’Oreal eyebrow pencil. All the colors but the one Laurie used were available. She also likes a special type of gel nail remover that really works. Since it worked so well, it had to be banned I guess. It was discontinued years ago. I scoured the Internet and bought all the available stock of it I could find. When she runs out of it, I don’t know what she will do.
