Your greenhouse buddy is beautiful in color and has intelligent eyes. He is looking at you as if wanting to know why you are pointing that thing at him.

He is an awesome looking guy. I bet he makes a great friend to your family too. It's such a shame this breed gets such a bad reputation. They are great dogs. I have never met one that was not a gentle soul.

Most attacks are not from pure bred APBT's, but are crosses that look like APBT's. There are a lot of fake pedigrees floating around that are certainly not APBT. The attacks you read about are many times Bandogs, a cross of APBT and Mastiff.

Second, you don't want these dogs to have human aggression, they are much to capable. The guy in the pic is obedience trained, as well as protection trained. He loves everyone until I say different.

He is a great family dog Patty, loves little kids, and is always at my side. The best part about the bred is their obvious sense of humor, I swear they know when we are laughing at them.

Long before I grew tomatoes, I bred Bulldogs and created a well known performance line starting in the mid 80's

They are wheels, there must be only 1 inch of side wall on the things.
Lord only knows how much they paid for the ugly things.
I took the pictuer leaving HEB on the way home.

I totally dislike low profile tires. They transfer the feel and sound of every piece of gravel into the cab. Standard profile tires absorb some of the noise and rough feel before it reaches the frame and cab.

See my thread on tires and how I got out from under the high priced worthless things.

I'm learning to use the zoom feature on Jan's camera. This is resized to 33%.

Good, it works - the size is 855 x 642. I think I'll go with resizing to 30% next time. Her camera takes much better quality pictures than my old Nintendo DS.

Oh, the flowers/plant is called Oxalis Triangularis. It likes part sun in my neck of the woods.

It also likes a pot on my patio in summer and goes dormant in the garage for winter. Not awake here, yet.

The stairs to nowhere.
This is to keep the door from knocking people back down the stairs.
What will happen is people will go around the corner and walk into the guard rail.
This is in my opinion a safety after thought that created yet another safety hazard.
simply because everyone is looking at their smart phones instead of where they are going.
I wasn't looking at anything and walked into the darn thing as I went around the corner to go up the stairs.
If I had my way this portion of the stairs would be taken out and a stone planter put in their place.
This would force people to go to the correct side of the hand rail before they went up the stairs.
