So, who's got YOUR back?

Because sometimes? You need an escape plan.

Edited at 10:00 AM Friday the 21st:


You are valued and I'm right here holding the blanket if you want to jump in.

Love you, buddy.

That's a cool shot someone went to a lot of trouble to set that up!

Anndi said...

Mike: Well said ;)

Roger: Right down to the firetrucks!

New layout looks good. Wouldn't it be easier to jump straight into the bed? That way no one gets hurt, the covers can be drawn over one's head and all the monsters go away...

Kate said...

Interesting picture.

DeeMarie said...

That's great. I hope she jumps feet-first!
Nice new layout! :)

Cat said...

I love that shot!

Dianne said...

wow!! what a great shot

amazing composition

I love the new layout

I hope Matt is OK, now I feel bad that my comment to him was so abrupt ... you're a kind person Anndi.

Hope you're feeling better

Anndi said...

Coop: Thanks! Sometimes you have to just jump into it and hope someone catches you. But time in a warm bed without monsters sounds nice.

Kate: I thought so too.

DeeMarie: Jumping in feet first can be good indeed LOL! Thanks :)

Cat: I'm glad you enjoyed it as much as I did!

Dianne: I'm very impressed at the detail.
Thanks! I like the new moi too.
Don't feel bad, it can be hard to figure out when someone's hurting... He's a good pal.
Meh, I'm not very encouraged at the moment. I'm hoping a weekend of rest with my Chicklet will help.

ciara said...

yikes @ the picture lol it is very interesting.

Brian o vretanos said...

That's brilliant!

Bond said...

Nice new look

We are watching you so you can not spread your plague to others

Anndi said...

Ciara: You gotta trust somebody sometime!

Brian: Yay! You're back! Isn't it though?

Bond: Thanks, I gotta be me.
and.... pfffffffffffffffffffffffft!

Captain Dumbass said...

I love that shot. And I love the new digs. Did I say that in an earlier comment? Maybe I shouldn't have skipped lunch.

Desert Songbird said...

Hey! Cool new look! Me likey.

We've got his back, right? He's a love; we won't let him fall too far.

Anndi said...

Capt: Coo huh? Thanks! Is the grilled cheese man giving you hallucinations?

Songbird: Thanks! I made it myself *grin*

Yup... his back, sides, front, the whole package *giggle*
He's covered!

Ron said...

OMG, Anndi...I TOTALLY flipped out when I clicked over to your blog and saw your new digs!

I actually thought I clicked on the wrong link!

Hey...I LOVE THIS!!!

It's funny, because WAY back when I first started Vent, I had a black blog too and LOVED it! Up until that point I had never even thought about it.

And OMG...I LOVE this post too!

How sweet!

(I LOVE little Pinocchio)

What a good friend you are, Anndi!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Anndi said...

Ron: Hi sweetie! Funny how we end up having similar layouts... twins? LOL
I laughed so much when I saw the shot and tell you what, you can be my Pinocchio, how's THAT sound?
It's a pleasure when you visit.

HUGS to you my dear friend!

Enjoy your weekend... perhaps a stroll in the park to feed our friends the squirrels! ;)

buffalodick said...

By God, it took eight minutes, but I got on! Hope you are well! I always have a Plan A, B, and C!

Mimi Lenox said...

The blanket is too small and the problems too big...Such is life at times....

Mimi Lenox said...

OK that was my curmudgeon comment.
I'll try to do better next time.

Meribah said...

Yup yup yup. Escape plans are always a good idea. That's why the Puppy's Palace has secret exits a-plenty. You never know when there might be a llama invasion! :P

Travis said...

I'm glad you're happy with the new style. I'm sorry to say that I have trouble reading on the dark background.

Luckily I have a Plan B - I can read on google and then come leave a comment!


Anndi said...

Buff: Glad you stuck with it, I've missed you around here. I love a man with a plan.

Mims: But a friend's arms are always big enough. **hugs**

Meri: Those dang pesky llamas! ;)

Travis: Sorry about your eyes. But real happy you have a plan B.
