I know that feeling! I went to a stylist who thought he was an “artist” and I came out looking like a poodle! Looking back I should have known better. The stylist was recommended by one of my in-laws who met when they were in treatment together. Live and learn!

A poodle!? Somehow that does not sound like an attractive hair style!

So glad hair grows!

I can laugh about it now. I went in with long straight hair and came out with a short curly ‘do. I had never seen a hair pick before and had no idea what to do with that tangled mess. The kind people I worked with kept a straight face as they complimented my new look.

Cut off long straight hair & make it short & curly?? Gah. I am and have always been a long hair fan. My mom talked me in to getting my hair cut (ponytail cut off - weird but I've still got it) when I was about 7. I know my hair was fine & straggly, but it looked terrible short. My sister talked me in to cutting my hair-down-to-my-waist to about shoulder length in 1974. I still regret that.

Have any of you seen the Guinea Pig Nutcracker? It's in book form and very cute. They have awesome costumes and the photos are adorable! Highly recommend it!

Yes! There are a whole series of guinea pig "classics," all very cute. Lynx has them listed on the new GL Holiday page:

They are very cute. Be sure to use the links on the Holiday page when you order -- sales from these books help support the board! ;)

By the way, the classics come in a set and I think it is less expensive to buy them that way than one by one.

Would love to see a GP Gone With the Wind. The costumes would be epic!

With luck, a certain dress made from curtains would include a curtain rod a la Carol Burnett!

The famed Curtain Dress, designed by Bob Mackie and worn by Carol Burnett during the "Went With the Wind!" sketch on "The Carol Burnett Show". This sketch was originally broadcast on CBS November 13, 1976. The Curtain Dress is on display at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History in Washington, DC.

Lynx, that has to be one of my all-time favorite scenes from that show. "I saw it in the window and had to have it," Scarlett (Carol Burnett) quips as she shows off her flowing curtain dress---curtain rod included. Classic.

Not sure If I have mentioned this show before, I used to watch it when I was a kid, but I suspect it is part of the reason I have a soft spot for furry rodents. Has Hamsters Rats and Guinea Pigs as well as other critters.

This episode is called "A Ride in Guineas Jeep"

Is anyone familiar with the snuffle mats made for dogs? Well, I made a mini size for Lacey and she seems to enjoy it. Here’s a link to a video: https://www.instagram.com/p/B517e3uBoGr/?igshid=4jjpfl7cnefc

That is so cute! I copied the share link so it would display here.

I bet she loves searching for food!

Thanks for displaying the video, Lynx! Lacey also likes to sleep on her snuffle mat so I’m thinking of making a larger one. After reading about using chenille bath mats in the cages, I wonder if something like this would also work for cage liners. Like I need an excuse to buy more fleece!
