    1. Thanks, they were perfect! And, so tiny - only about 2 mm tall! Posted 11 months ago
    2. Christine's pristine photographs? ;) :P Posted 11 months ago
      1. Haha! Brings back memories though to when kids in school called me Christine Pisstine. My other nickname was "lucifer" because my maiden name is Lussier. Kids can be so spectacularly mean, can't they? Excluding my own precious children, though...naturally ;)

        1. "My other nickname was "lucifer" because my maiden name is Lussier"

          That de-escalated quickly.
