I don't know what it is about roadkill squirrel that makes my teeth immediately fall out, but it is delectable.
You there, Ephialtes. May you live forever.

I much preferred the one that I encountered when I first got here and which lasted for a long, long time. The tortoise and the hare. Seemed like the perfect image for a Permanent Portfolio forum. I was disappointed when it was no longer. Also, was semi-shocked to see the Mountaineer's long standing one suddenly change and then seemingly undergo frequent changes. On the other hand, have always enjoyed Smith1776's frequent changes.

Just for you Vinny!

This is what I looked like when living in West Virginia, and foraging for that stuff someone mentioned cooking on another thread. The housing though was quite cheap. And my grocery expenses zero. And, above all, my permanent tooth cleaning expenses and toilet paper expenses were also zero. Covid related worry was nill. ;)

Do I have your endorsement to revert to my Mountaineer avatar? I take it you were shocked, delighted, or otherwise snicker knickered for the primate avatar? ;D ;D ;D

Sorry. That was NOT the one. By your standards that was another short lived one, also! It was the one that had something moving across within the image. Somewhat like what you see on a medical device that is graphically showing the heart rate and has a moving vertical line going across. Remember that one? I must have steadily seen that one for well over a year?

I remember that one (google <flatline GIF>), but it followed the one that M just brought back, which he'd had for a very long time.

He must have had that one prior to me becoming an active participant here.

I never made that connection. I was always mesmerized by it and wondering how you obtained this image that had movement in it.

I Shrugged, I almost spit out my coffee this morning when I saw your new avatar. Well done.

And tomfoolery, several houses in my neighborhood have your new avatar on a sign in their front yard. My understanding is that it protects the houses against graffiti, thrown bricks, and mortar fireworks. May it also protect your forum account from the online equivalents.
