Don't think I will be putting the plants in the dishwasher.....

But I know what you mean love.

And actually....I bought a gorgeous dish rack (for drying dishes). I am not a fan of dishwashers.
And I actually love washing dishes....it's my meditative time.

We don't have any pictures of us yet Bill...well, one from November.
I hate photos of me...I guess I could try to get over that.

Interesting. I hate looking in mirrors. J.P. Morgan didn't like photos being taken of himself and tried to hit one photographer with his cane. The story was that he was embarrassed about his red, misshapen nose.
If I ever meet you (probably will die first) there will be no way for me to identify you. Maybe I can ask for your date of birth and driver's license the way they do in hospitals.
I like electric dishwashers. Am very fond of them. Probably one of my "character defects."

Fondly

Bill and The Boz (Venusdog)

I had several lovely ones one time and my insane cat ate every one of them. This was years ago. Any reason why a cat would want to eat one?

^ Knowing cats, that is likely true. I remember she ate one down to the dirt! We got another one and she went after it and ate it up. Got another and sure enough... Eventually we had to hide the new gloxinia to keep her away from it. She never ate any another plant, just gloxinias.

No idea Drake....that is very unusual.
I had tons of them, and Venus never touched them....

I just found some online after a lengthy search.
Not sure if it's the seeds or the plants....I will find out.

No cat would ever be "insane" or at least would not admit it. From a cat's perspective the rest of the world is "insane", a world which it views with amused and superior detachment. Doing so is not a defect on the cat's part since the cat is probably correct. To be sure, the larger varieties of cats at times eat humans, a habit which is sometimes criticized, but this is usually from hunger or boredom from feeding on lesser species.

Or maybe they do it just because they can.
Humans can be irritating...
