Tongues

Are you one of those people who sticks out their tongue slightly when concentrating?  I am.  Most of my natal family is/was, too.  Glenn doesn't do it much and I'm not sure about Erika.

But, it looks like Pumpkin does it:

Evidently, sticking out one's tongue stops it from moving and sensing (something it does almost constantly) which thereby causes fewer messages to go to the brain, supposedly allowing the person to concentrate more effectively.  Seems golfers are sometimes encouraged to stick out their tongues when putting! Who knew?

We certainly didn't know that! Looks like Pumpkin is really part of the family.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Pumpkin has hers out some much, she's lucky she doesn't bite it accidently! Jimmy is pretty much the same. It's a rare photo of Jim with no tongue showing.

Oops! That's supposed to be "so" much....not "some" much. My proof reading skills leave something to be desired :-)
