member since: 7/30/2003 Melissa, Kara, Olivia and Kerby: Thanks for those very encouraging comments!!! And yes Olivia and Kerby you did post on this before. When I entered this image it wasn't showing up in the contest entries. I think BP must have been down for a short period. So then I posted it again about 15 minutes later. And now people are commenting on both pics. Sorry about the confusion ;O)
