    Winter Avatar Changes

    What the heck is going on???? Every time I look at DC everyone has new avatars. Is this like the changing of the guards? Just when I start to recognize posters it just turns to crap.

    Now we have cupcakes, motorcycles are turning to faces. Did Lima start all of this trouble?

    And actually there are some that have never changed theirs.

    I rarely change mine, but 9 times outta ten it'll have to do with DIE HARD.

    Rick and I have had ours almost since we registered. We are the boring and consistent ones I guess.

    I guess I'm dull, boring and listless too.

    I've been thinking of changing it, but then no one would know me and I'd have to act like a newb again.

    Talking

    Mine is my original. It's so OLD...the little boy is in his second year of college now - the dogs hips are displaced and he has no teeth and his fur is falling out - the flags are tattered and faded...the rifle is all pitted and rusty and the grass is all weeds.

    I should really change mine someday. At least temporarily.

    I changed mine just to see if I could; besides the Python and knife are two of the favorite toys! But I will go along and blame Lima too...

    HAHA... I think I'm on my fifth? Or something like that, and I was looking through pictures yesterday plotting and planning my next avatar for Christmas.

    I usually make all of my own avatars so it gets a little involved.

    I get bored too easily. I need change.. excitement...

    You think this is bad, you should see how often the backgrounds on my phone and computer change.

    If you want to blame anyone it might be me. When I joined I started with one of my dogs as the avatar and I changed every two months. We have three dogs, but I also used the two who have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge as avatars. Then I put up the one that I have now. After several months we got on a real eagle and flag kick so I first had an eagle, then a flag, then an eagle flying over a flag. I kept the last one for a good while and then went back to my vanity tag avatar. If I added correctly I have had 10 avatars in about 22 months of membership, but twice the avatars were the same. I like variety. I may change again soon.

    Just checked and found that I had two avatars for 3 of the dogs and that I had an eagle in front of the flag before I had the eagle flying over the flag. So the correct number of avatars is 8 dog avatars, 1 flag, 1 eagle, two eagles and flags, and the DR CMG license plate for at total of 13 different avatars and 14 usages since the DR CMG avatars has been used twice.
