Sperm Fish (93/365)

Couldn't decide which was my favorite picture, so you get both!
I like the sperm tail on the top one, but like the retro feel of the bottom one.  
Enjoy; Ralph did!

One-Eyed Monster (92/365)

Ralph met someone new while he was at the clinic with me.
He still can't decide if this new, one-eyed monster is friend or foe?
What do you think?

Filing (90/365)

Filing is such a mundane project; glad I had Ralph to make it more fun!

VCU (88/365)

It's called "March Madness" for a reason; Ralph and I almost went crazy watching the game tonight.  What a match-up!  VCU (my alma mater) v/s FSU and in the last 7 seconds we knocked off FSU!!!  SUCK IT!!!  I am proud to be a RAM!!!

Tree Mash-Up (85/365)

This mash-up was created using the tree Misha (365 Trees) offered up for collaboration purposes.  This is the result of running the picture through a few of Photobucket's editing processes.  Ralph shrunk himself down and is hiding somewhere in the picture...he is quite the shapeshifter.  See if you can find him...

(Hint:  He is tucked into a round shape...hiding in the 1/4 inch from the left side of the picture and an inch down from the top...)

Dream (84/365)

Suddenly, Ralph woke with a start!  Heart racing and nearly in a panic, he realized that it was all a dream!  He knew Swiper was his buddy and, despite what everyone had said, it IS possible for a fish and a fox to be friends.  Swiper wouldn't eat Ralph...too many bones and not enough meat to satisfy a fox's hunger.  Feeling better, Ralph drifted back into a dreamless, restful sleep.

Swiper (83/365)

Today's mash-up comes courtesy of Jess' Swiper the Fox over at the blog, "Play by Play."

It seems that Swiper has enjoyed a tasty fish snack!

Sunset (82/365)

If you look close enough, you can see Ralph sitting on the tree trunk (look closely at the "v" in the upper left.  In the bottom right, just over the horizon, the sun is setting.

Japan (81/365)

This mash-up is in conjunction with The Year of the Written Word's Beth, who has a special link to Japan.  By the way, how cool is it that I have figured out (finally) how to merge pictures using Photobucket's photo editor?

Merit Badge (79/365)

So, Ralph tried to play it off like he wasn't excited to have been the recipient of a 365 Nerd Merit Badge, but when I got up last night to spy on him with my night vision goggles I caught him admiring it.

Twisted (74/365)

Growing up, my mom would always cut slits in plastic, six-pack drink binders.  She said that if you didn't, birds and fish could get stuck in them, not be able to free themselves and die.  Ever since then, I have always cut slits in each hole for the same reason.

Video (73/365)

Today I am cheating a bit by posting my video submission for the 365 Merit Badge activity.  It may appear simple, but it took me making the video in three different applications before I could upload it to YouTube and, even then, I had to redo the background music because of copyright issues.  So, with all the time spent on it, I figure it should count as one day's picture!
