Oh yes. If you look upthread, that's the Grand Finale.

I may post up some pics of my Mom's progress on the dress.

Merci has been a good pup. Never once chewed anything up after her puppy teething period...and yeah, that included the wool liners from my slippers.

As good as she is and as dedicated to me as she may be (I call her my stalker), I'm not sure she has the patience to play dressup, with goggles or anything else. I think she'll understand...and love me all the same.

.... like goggles for the dog. Even if she won't play dress-up, she will appreciate the gesture.

You flatter me Allen. It's the photography that sucks. One of these days I need to buy a real camera again.

I like the steampowered shotgun idea. I will even give you a name for it. The HotShot™!

I was thinking of calling it the TexiGun™!

Well, all I got was a forwarded cellphone pic. My daughter never made it over here before prom.



If any more are forthcoming, I'll be sure to share them.

Well, it's obvious she got her looks from her mother. You'll need to start working on that shotgun asap when the pictures get out.

March both of the kiddies bottoms over for pics. We deserve it. We have been following this story for too long to go without a proper set of pictures.

As a button, she is cute. Good looking prom outfit- a success all the way around.

Some professional photos were taken at prom, but my Mom still hasn't scanned them.

Inquisitive minds are still waiting for the "work in progress" photo's of the dog's set by the way. Being your daughter I expected to see a couple of fingers poking up behind his head in the first picture.

The "Arabian Nights" and "Under the Sea" themes always sound too violent to me or ending in disaster (Under the Sea). Unless you want your prom night to end under the sea, never to be remembered again
