AMAZING! There's a great story to tell here. This makes me think of Hemingway's Farwell To Arms. I think it's safe to say the nurse had the hots for your dad.
I'm sure there was a great story..........
He never really did tell me the whole thing, nor would I really have expected him to......some things are better left in the heart and in the imagination!

Story?

Sometimes more than others,
we see who and what and where we are,
I'm just a one man band,
With my feet in the sand,
Tonight I just need my guitar

Don't know what the problem has been. have tried to cut and paste, have tried to copy, etc, it's just not working. Good thing my roommate is good with 'puters! I'll see if he can figure it out!

Couple of ways to do it:

First, if you are using Photobucket as your offsite photoserver: Upload your picture to Photobucket. Click on the second address box from the top in the view of your picture. It is now copied to your clipboard. Go to BN and open a reply window. Paste your photo address in the reply window. Now you can either Highlight the entire address string and then click the button that has the " Img"in it. This will add the characters [img]and[/img] around your address....this is the command to use the information between the [img]and[/img] and present it as a picture...... the other way is to simply add the [img]and[/img] to your picture address.......

NOTE taht the address for your picture must end in .jgp for this to work...

Also if you need an example, right click on any picture and select properties.....
