    Here are ten good excuses for not sending a photo to Ron to post on The Grumble (including a box to check if you HAVE sent a picture.). Choose the one that comes closest to yours.

    Where's the box for none of the above? :confused:

    I've never found "none of the above" to be a statistically-satisfying response to a poll, so I did not include it. Do the best you can. (I would think your choice would be #10, Anne.)

    I'm interested to find out that there are three people who actually think they are respected in their profession. That's the same number (so far) who are named Guido.

    So far, nobody cares about MY server space though I recall a suggestion a few months ago that we all stop using vowels in our posts in order to save framer's server space.

    You may think this poll is facetious - perhaps even a parody of polls. On the contrary, there is a method and a purpose here. I'll let you know when I figure out what it is.

    #11 A self taught wanna be computer geek without the knowledge or equipment to send pictures on the web. {Not to mention hates to have picture taken and probably could only find grade school stuff.}

    The last picture of me that was fit to be seen was 28 years ago.

    Purp, you forgot to put [/img] at the end of the site. Hurry up! I want to see!!!

    Puh-lease hurry! Do you have any idea how long it took me to try and type in that whole web site? Then it said, "Page could not be found"

    Charles,
    I did put it on and on the computer's etc site the picture is there.

    I think I will take Bo for a long walk and he will explain it all to me.
    Purp, if there's supposed to be an actual picture of you, a real person, I can't see it. But then, I keep seeing those little aliens. R-i-g-h-t out of the corner of my eye, and when I turn my head to see them, they're gone.

    "C'mon, Bo. Wanna go outside?"

    All excuses are flimsy excuses.
    I hate having my picture taken. Well, I hate seeing the results... and I managed to send a picture.
    I had to have a friend scan the picture and save it to a floppy, then attached it to an email and sent it to Ron. It took 3 tries to get it there, but Ifinally succeeded. Persistence!
    Anyway, we want everyone to play!
    So come on! :D

    Boy, and we appreciated the effort, Deb.

    As I recall, you sent a photo that was taken from a weather satellite in a high orbit. I had to send it to cousin Burt at the CIA (whoops, sorry Burt) to have it digitally-enhanced so we could see your face. (I even had him remove that little scar under your right eye.) It's a good face, though, and worth the trouble.

    Consider this: One of you may need me sometime as a character witness. It would be very helpful if I could say, for example, something like, "Yep. FramerDave is a character, all right! Why, he was the VERY FIRST GRUMBLER to send me his picture for posting!"

    It's too late to be the very first, but you could still be the 45th. (Yep, #44 is waiting in the wings for you to correctly guess #43.)

    Ron,
    I didn't say it was a good picture... but it was a picture...
