LOL Patricia! What a funny (not to Martha) and timely shot!! Leno said she has a new cell number -- cell #19. #411593

Colette M. Metcalf 3/6/2004 7:36:13 PM

What a great image, Patricia!!! I agree with Joy on this one!!!! #411660

Carol Brill 3/6/2004 7:49:27 PM

Evy Johansen 3/6/2004 8:59:41 PM

LOL - Thanks for the giggle this early morning.... This is really great and very, very funny, Patricia!
I agree - with Joy and Colette!!!!
I like your link too.... :-) #411768

Julie Turner 3/6/2004 9:47:14 PM

This is too funny! You captured it perfectly. Maybe you should send Martha a copy for her "records." #411828

Darren K. Fisher 3/7/2004 6:12:23 AM

I have to agree with Julie I am sure Martha would love a copy. This is such an awesome capture. I know we will see this one again. #412228

Susie Peek-Swint 3/7/2004 3:43:51 PM

Great shot Patricia -- love the thread that followed also!! #413004

Patricia Marroquin 3/7/2004 4:31:49 PM

Cathy, Kristen, Carolyn, Joy, Bill, Jason, Susan, Murry, Colette, Carol, Evy, Julie, Darren and Susan, thank you all so very much!

I'm not so sure this will be among the finalists, and if not, that's OK with me. Your comments mean a lot!

Don't think Martha would appreciate a copy of this for her records. LOL! :-)

Someone told me that one of the tabloids had the funniest lead on this story: "It's curtains for Martha!" LOL! #413078

Peggy Wolff 3/22/2004 7:47:25 AM

This is GREAT! So funny! I just looked at your gallery for the first time and you have so many beautiful images. I hope to be seeing this one again! #440375

Patricia Marroquin 3/22/2004 12:27:42 PM

Oh, thank you so much, Margaret! That's very kind of you. This image combines two favorite things for me: dogs (especially Goldens) and newspapers (my profession). :-) #440832

Jessica Hughes 3/22/2004 1:28:03 PM

This photo is great! I needed that laugh this afternoon!

Thank you, Nancy! :-) #451392

Jean Papo 4/1/2004 2:10:27 PM

Great shot, Patricia! Very funny, and most appealing too!!! PS I miss Martha's tv show, no matter her guilt/innocence...! (It was funny too) #458555

Patricia Marroquin 4/2/2004 12:37:10 AM

Thanks, Jean. I've gotta admit that I miss her show too. It's humorous because it's so hard to believe one person can be that talented. I'm in awe. I love to watch people create things that I could never do myself. That's the appeal of her show. :-) #459128

Jean Papo 4/2/2004 12:39:54 AM

Well, maybe she'll be back, a humbler -is that a word?, gentler Martha, haha! #459131

Jean Papo 4/12/2004 12:34:56 AM

Congratulations, Patricia!!! Well done!! #474425

Peggy Wolff 4/12/2004 9:15:22 AM

So glad to see this here! I hope you win first place with it, it is a photo with great color, a great idea, very funny, great DOF, and a great angle. And of course shows the times, which I love to see in photos. I am routing for you! #476731

Claudia Kuhn 4/12/2004 9:39:36 AM

Good one! Congrats!! #476905

Susan T. Parady 4/12/2004 9:48:36 AM

I'm glad to see this in the finals, Patricia, it is very clever and well shot! Congratulations! #476957

Patricia Marroquin 4/12/2004 12:58:18 PM

Hi, Jean, Kasia, Kath, K, Margaret, Claudia and Susan. Thank you!

Although I set this shot up, Bixby really does retrieve the newspaper each day. The Star is easy for him to bring in; but the Los Angeles Times can sometimes be a challenge, and he definitely can't get the whole Sunday Times in his mouth! LOL!

Margaret, that is such a compliment, thank you very much! #477462

Carol Brill 4/12/2004 2:00:34 PM

Congratulations, Patricia, hope you gave Bixby a big tip for this winning combination!! Best of luck! #477715

Colette M. Metcalf 4/12/2004 4:30:50 PM

Congrats again, Patricia!! #478391

Stephen Zacker 4/12/2004 4:57:04 PM

Well Done. Congratulations! #478552

Murry Grigsby 4/12/2004 6:46:05 PM

Congrats on your win and this fun (maybe not for Martha) image Patricia!! #478998

William C. Raco 4/12/2004 7:11:10 PM

Still makes me laugh.
Great job, Patricia.
Excellent sense of humor

bill #479146

Dale Ann Cubbage 4/12/2004 8:47:28 PM

Congrats Patricia! This is hilarious! #479514

Patricia Marroquin 4/12/2004 10:34:30 PM

Thank you, Carol, Colette, Stephen, Murry, Bill and Dale!

Carol, I'm an enabler -- I give tubby Bixby more treats than I should, much to my husband's dismay. So he gets rewarded every day. :-) #479715

Darren K. Fisher 4/13/2004 6:41:32 AM

Thanks to Martha you and Bixby came up with one great image. I still love it. Congrats to you both. #480512

Marta #924262

Patricia Marroquin 11/20/2004 10:12:58 AM

Hi Marta, thank you! Even though Bixby does retrieve our newspapers for us every morning, I did set this one up. :-) #927701
