I love your avatar ghyle, it's quite original.
And your siggy is nice and colorful, though any longer and I probably wouldn't bother reading much of it.
9/10 for the avatar and 7/10 for the siggy.

I likw your avatar here Beisla, I think I prefer it to your NKT one. This one has more 'surrealism' to it!

Your siggy is short, sweet, and to the point! #

9/10 for both!

I like Ghyle's avitar (and am a bit biased to the portion as he is my papa ). I like the dolphin avitar.

My siggy is a work in progress as some have noticed it has changed recently.

It's actually a vole, not a mouse.

A friend, Cuyler Brooks, wanted to thank me for helping him, and we ended up with a space vole wearing a propellor beanie, because he couldn't fins a suitable ordinary vole. I found the basis for my avatar for him, he added the beanie; when it came time for here, I had it cropped by our Wonderful Leader, and voila!

Someone deserves a round of applause for her work with our avatars! Folks?...

Your avatar is really cool, monkeysrule! I like the others too. Ghyle's has a nice humorous touch. Mine is a Dutch bridge, a photo I took on my trip to visit Hans two years ago. I also cropped the image. So it's mine, although I didn't build the bridge!

I drew the pic that is my avatar, as well as Anneli's. Nether looks exactly like us nor is meant to - they are our Pernese alter egos who we sometimes write about.

Monkeysrule - if you saw my avatar anywhere other than one of my sites, I'd like to know about it!
