You have to scare the cacti. Threaten them with annihilation if they even THINK about sticking one spiny bit in the wrong spot! Make them shiver so much in terror that their spines fall off!

Or...you could go with the suggestion of reinforced pants.

Julia - The Ugly Sweater comments are brilliant!

Someone, please, give this woman her own show on cable.

I gave them all very evil looks today. That'll scare them. One would think. Maybe. Kinda. Sorta.

I agree! And, I think Julia might maybe be regretting her fun topic of the week. That took a serious amount of time and thought on her part. Kudos Judge (not that I'm trying to butter you up or anything ).

Julia, you are hysterical! Loved your judge's comments! I actually scared the baby because I was cracking up so loudly!

Yeah, I got to post 46 and went, "Oh, hell." I needed a little break. But all the entries were great!

Hmmm, do you have to yell or snarl at them while you're shooting them evil looks?

Major kudos to Julia - the ugly sweater thread is a hoot!

Life magazine is 75 years old. Here they have published what they consider to be their best 75 photographs. An amazing photographic history of the last 75 years:
