That's not what I meant. What ZP said - he knows about phony!

Yeah, I know what you're saying. He was selective about what he shot (more than staging, in my view). Unless you actually want to take pictures of less attractive stuff, I think we all are selective in taking our pictures. I know I'm not much interested in seeing ugly stuff.

Course, if we want the gritty stuff, there's always that one kid's thread with pictures

Hey, I don't get it about ZP

Even this beautiful stuff doesn't exactly look like this all the time and it's most certainly not observed from all locations. What I'm saying is if people base their relocation decisions on such pictures they might as well base their marriage decisions on Harlequin novels.

What is it you don't get?! Zony is the founding father of ZPPB! You're just a mere follower...



I disagree with the kid's presentation, too. I'm for a balanced view. Don't get me wrong, though - there's nothing wrong with beautiful pictures. I liked them a lot, too.

Dammit! I knew I shouldn't have been reading those things. Look where that got me. I've taken to calling the ex "my son's mom". Not even a mere hint of a personal connection.

I'll never read another one of those evil books. Fool me once.

And for you poor, unsuspecting out of towners, yep, those pics are cherry picked. But nice cherry picking, though. You gotta admit.

You'll find that with any place you ever take a photograph. You want it to look awesome. And of course you can't just judge a place on a picture or two.

Otherwise if you take a look at pictures of Duluth ( //www.city-data.com/city/Duluth-Minnesota.html ) in the winter, you'll think it's always a frozen tundra or something.

I've been to Tucson (stayed there overnight) and from what I saw, I liked it.

I appreciate your thoughts!

There's a lot to be said for carefully thought out fabrication, and well-manicured phoniness...

There is so much to be learned from patiently-processed, warmed-over baloney...

Total falsehoods and outright fibbing is best when harvested after much care and love!

I love my groupies!

I frequently get a kick out of your malarkey, but groupies? Postah, please.

When I posted these pics, I wasn't even thinking about what effect it might have on potential newcomers. Just some pretty pics to share of our lovely area, nothing more and nothing less. Sheesh.

Actually, Sierra believes the Pony to be the Poster Child for Phoniness and Founding Father of Falsehood!

Brings a tear to my eye... ...:::SNIFF:::... Naturally, I'm humbled by her sentiments!
