Doing great, G!


But you have not answered my question. Where did you find the objects of these pics?

On the internet... (on a blog site)

Did you think I met these women in real life and suddenly developped a talent for photography?

Something like that. You strike me as a talented individual, G.

Good Humpday morning guys.

Dave, we all know how frustrating a computer can be, expecially when it is just a simple task and everything goes wrong.



Cute dog?

If G can repost so can I.

For some reason this one is just funny to me.

Wow I have had a very busy morning. I am posting while at lunch from my phone.

The phone rang more today than most weeks.

You did not like the owl picture? I took it a long time ago long before the fad hit.

Oh, but I did. I really did. Nature pics in general are the best in my opinion. So alive, so full of mystery, so beautiful.

begin rant

so i bought a replacement mirror for the subaru off of ebay. my wife swiped the passenger mirror while going about 35MPH, the glass and housing are shattered. i got the replacement about two weeks ago.

this morning, i get the door panel off and the mirror off and open the box with the replacement. what do i find? not only is the mirror housing broken due to the shoddy packaging, not only is it the WRONG mirror, its from a FKN(!!!) NISSAN. JC on a popsicle stick!

this makes two ebay transactions in a row that suck.

/rant

In this case its a sad story. I told Dave it last night. While hunting in 1983 we found this owl. It had been shot by a JERK cause it was keeping him up at night. We kept track of him and found the game warden. He got his and the owl was captured and taken in for care. Probably then placed in a zoo some place as he would never fly again. I was probably only about 10 feet away when I took the picture and he was to week to put up a bluff all he could do was watch you.

when the item is not described correctly and mislabeled, there isn't much i can do. basically, the first seller flat out lied about the condition of the item. the second seller sent the wrong part and it was packed with a single layer of thin bubble wrap, not much i can do about that. as for the mirror, it is a $30 purchase for which i was charged $13 shipping. i am not willing to pay that shipping again for a $30 part only to have to deal with that incompetent seller again. i already ordered another mirror. we'll see what the mirror seller has to say. i am sure it is going to end up being a shouting match, which i am going to bypass by leaving negative feedback and reporting the seller as soon as he starts the match.

and, if i end up the proud owner of the NISSAN mirror, i'll resell it on ebay, but with the added courtesy of a correct and accurate description.
