Would you guys do me a quick favor? Could you go to this entry (it’s from 2005) and if you cannot see the pictures in that post, would you let me know?
Flickr has changed the way they’re doing things, and the pictures that I uploaded and used their “share” code from 2005 for have stopped showing up (they changed where they’re hosting the pictures, I think). I’m thinking that I’m going to self-host the pictures that you see here, and then link to the same picture at Flickr. In other words, you won’t (hopefully) notice that anything’s different, but if Flickr arbitrarily up and changes the way they have their pictures hosted/ coded in the future, at least you’ll see the pictures in my posts instead of the ugly “this picture cannot be viewed” box.
Kennebec said “No, really. This is the road you want to go down?” and gave Stompers his best Hard Look™.
And Stompers said “Oh, I think I see something over THERE that requires my attention!”
“So, I was eating my snack, and there was some sort of commotion going on over by the door, and I heard the lady open the door and say ‘You coming in, Mouth?’, and then it was quiet, and I kept eating my snack. Wellington jumped on me and bit me on the butt, and I just ignored him, because if you respond to him, it just makes it worse.”
“And then I was thirsty, so I went across the room to get a drink, and I looked up, and there was Mr. Stripey, and he was sniffing at Sungold, and I was all ‘Whatevs.’ and got my drink. I was drinking and drinking, and then a tiny little voice in my head said ‘That wasn’t Sungold Stripey was sniffing. Sungold is big, but he’s not THAT big.’, so I looked, and saw that the little voice was right. That was NOT Sungold. It wasn’t Sungold at all!”
“I had to LEAD him over to where the STRANGER was sniffing around our plate, and I said ‘Dingbat! Sungold! That STRANGER is eating the crumbs off our plate, the crumbs we was saving for later!’ and then they put on their STRANGER DANGER suits, too.”
“Which is when I lost my mind and yowled and screeched and the lady put down her camera and picked up the STRANGER and said ‘You gotta go, Mouth, sorry.’ and put him out of the room.”
“But that doesn’t mean he was allowed back in. Because this is OUR room! He doesn’t belong in here!”
(FYI, the STRANGER was Kennebec!)
