A re-submit of a 2009 favorite. If you've commented before, don't feel you need to again. Just thought that this was a perfect image for today.

Thanks for writing, Pom. You know your words mean a lot to me.
I've missed the give-and-take on-site and off, but have been tied up this month preparing family photos for a favorite niece. There hasn't been much time to look at photos "just for fun". Hopefully, that will change soon!

I came to your gallery to see what was new and came across this one again. Mare, I would resubmit this one until it gets GOLD.

I agree with Irene. It's just so perfect. This formation of ducks will never happen again. The judges love this of a kind stuff.

I like the tie-dye idea, Pom-a-lade...

"Hey sister, go sister, soul sister, go sister
Hey sister, go sister, soul sister, go sister
He met Marmalade down in Old New Orleans
Struttin' her stuff on the street
She said, "Hello, hey Joe
You wanna give it a go?"

Gitchi gitchi ya ya da da
Gitchi gitchi ya ya here
Mocha chocolata, ya ya
Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?

He stayed in her boudoir
While she freshened up
That boy drank all that Magnolia wine
On her black satin sheets
Where he started to freak

Gitchi gitchi ya ya da da
Gitchi gitchi ya ya here
Mocha chocolata, ya ya
Creole Lady Marmalade..."

And so on and so forth... Good ole Internet searches.
As for re-submits, I suppose at some point down the line, this might magically appear again... I thank you for your support!

I like the way you think, Patricia. It'd be grand to have this displayed somewhere besides my friend's screen saver. A doctor's (particularly a pediatrician's) office would give parent and child something to talk about, eh? Thanks for the idea, and thanks for your friendly comments!
