WOW ..!!..
i'm feeling quite excited 5 minutes before rollover ..

it went .. in the last couple of hours .. from 7.14 to 7.24 in four votes ..

i'm usually commplaining about the big drop before rollover .. so this is a really welcome surprise ..

i wasnt all that invested in this pic either like i am with some ..

asked a really nice ExDentistSlashGolfer guy for his opinion .. on not 2 but 11 photos .. !! ..

he went for the two i was tossing up .. the one i entered and this one ..

thankyou everyone for your excellent comments during voting and some high votes .. xx

oh .. the drop .. lol .. went from 7.2 to 7.1 just now .. :(
