Re: Deer

Thanks, Melody for coming out as an Introvert.  I am, too (didn't quite peg
<haha> the needle but almost) but it explains why I like to sit and watch
plants grow and thats enough for me! :^) My best friend of 30 years
highlights the difference (she is an extravert) as best I;ve seen: "I'ts
Friday night and I want to go out and have fun!" I, on the other hand, want
to wind down, build a fire in the wood stove, hug the resident
Canine-Americans of mixed ancestry and chill out.
Even fall asleep on the couch as the fire winds down. Time for the
misunderstood introverts of America to rise up and (be silent in their
Being shy is tough stuff.  Thats why God invented gardening (imho).
Ok. Off the soapbox.

> Thanks for the invite, Linda;  this is probably the best part of this
community:  it is such a hospitable place...everyone for the most part, is
so welcoming to one another...I know people might find this hard to believe,
but I am a rather major introvert when it comes to my personal life and
don't count very many people as my friends...comes from having been a total
nerd/geek in high school I think and my absolute love of solitary activities
like reading, gardening, thinking...but suddenly, thanks to this list, I now
have friends all over the country...makes me feel like a social butterfly
for the first time in my life.  Thanks guys!

much your friend spent ontransportation, etc. he probablycame out pretty
