Hiccup?


Funerals :(

I'm attempting to contact the next person in line currently though. Will post all my pics together, probably after FS rollover due to the scene being too identifiable.

I think at this late stage in the runnings, if you try to contact the next on the list without success you should simply go to the next in line until a contact has been made and go from there, I reckon quite a few have left the site since this was almost 2 years ago when it all started hahaha.

It must be an epidemic. Three funerals for friends of mine in the last couple of weeks, plus had to put my favorite little dog down because of cancer.
Thanks for picking up the thread again.

Arrived at my house today (south of Seattle) I will repair him, maybe give him the studio treatment and take him to the Emerald City for a day.

Yippee! L & F have made it to the west coast (of the USA) finally. And in my lifetime. (hey! I'm in my 80's. it is getting to be a nailbiter!)

When ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' smardaz has finished sprucing up the duo, and photographing the results he comes to me in San Francisco.

I'm hoping for a DPC-GTG themed to entertain Lost and Found while here and a ceremonial hand-off to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/1031.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/1031.gif', '/') + 1) . ' GeneralE soon.

So anybody in the Bay Area who would like in on the GTG holler and we can make big plans.

Alice, you dug up an old list. I gave up on this quite some time ago and had my name taken off the list. I assume there have been other changes, as well. You might want to find a more recent list to quote.
06/22/2015 05:13:17 PM · #719
I humbly apologize for the delay. I had big plans and then injury and illness sidelined me. I will get some Seattle shots and mail it off to Alice this week. Again, my apologies for the delay.

Amazing really if it actually happens ..

The only thing is that a lot of people have not posted pictures but I will ask everyone who had him/them to submit their 2 favourite shots to my email for the book.

How about starting a new thread where people can post only pictures or a link to their pictures. I posted a link to mine but I am not sure if it was seen. I think the photos are getting lost in these pages.

Meanwhile, Lost & Found and I sent exploring this morning. It started out foggy in Golden Gate Park...where we visited Stow Lake ' . substr('//onetacoshort.com/upimg/9ce709928cfc875d2106854ab2785382_120.jpg', strrpos('//onetacoshort.com/upimg/9ce709928cfc875d2106854ab2785382_120.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' and then headed to the Dahlia Garden...' . substr('//onetacoshort.com/upimg/cca993d792e049d79d6d7ff574757ec9_120.jpg', strrpos('//onetacoshort.com/upimg/cca993d792e049d79d6d7ff574757ec9_120.jpg', '/') + 1) .

On our way to the ocean, we stopped at Spreckles Lake where the sailors like to hang out...' . substr('//onetacoshort.com/upimg/504476226cb2fe9cc8135da3006ce84e_120.jpg', strrpos('//onetacoshort.com/upimg/504476226cb2fe9cc8135da3006ce84e_120.jpg', '/') + 1) .

...as we got closer to the ocean, there was, of course Queen Wilhelmina's Garden ' . substr('//onetacoshort.com/upimg/b005de77c63cbf09d0b0c7df9d323a83_120.jpg', strrpos('//onetacoshort.com/upimg/b005de77c63cbf09d0b0c7df9d323a83_120.jpg', '/') + 1) .

Then we found the ocean and the Cliffhouse...' . substr('//onetacoshort.com/upimg/c195f8a6743af391422835a880c5dfdf_120.jpg', strrpos('//onetacoshort.com/upimg/c195f8a6743af391422835a880c5dfdf_120.jpg', '/') + 1) .

The little fellows are resting now.
