Luke was dressed as Johnny Depp, and Tom was Johnny Depp's manager in the film, " Fear and loathing in "L.A".  >a weird film, but very funny, depending on your sense of humour, the film is as they say "very far out", but Luke and Tom had a great night out, at a special screening for film buffs , >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>..,

Ahhh, Wendy - I just love your pictures cuz I can see your special brand of humour right there in them... kinda like being able to recognize you in a crowd! lol You are beautiful and Mick is such a handsome fellow! You look like you're having so much fun.

Lily, wonderful pic of you on the horse -- you are holding the reins pretty darn good for someone on a horse for the first time! I love old photos like that one when you were little.

Thanks for the pics. I will look to see what I have in storage. We posted a YouTube the other day of our 25 year old cockatiel getting a water spray mist bath, to the tune of some kind of chicken dance music. lol As he is a member of the family I'll post that one soon.

Hi Barb -- got a pic of Baby and Beenie for us?

I forgot about this one. Hee hee This is my cousin Linda and I with that handsome fellow we all love. My cousin is on the left and that's me on the right. We are double-cousins, as our mothers were sisters and our dads were brothers. You'd think we would look more alike. She is nine months younger.

Those are wonderful pictures, Lily! I just love the oldie pics. So many of us look somewhat similar in many old pictures because of the popular way it was to pose your children back then. Anybody else ever notice that? I LOVE your Harry. What a sweetheart. He didn't mind being filmed at all. Thanks, Lily.

This was done on a fun link a few years ago. Lynn has seen it before. I will try to find that link in case anyone else wants to play with it.

>thanks for the compliments to me, sheesh make me blush, I love Bonnie the boxer, she is so sweet honestly, she was crying, because she wanted me to get out of the hot tub, and play with her. Later I was lying on the grass chatting to Linda, Bonnie lay next to me, her legs in the air, so funny, Linda was calling her a traitor, Bonnie kept turning her face away, sighing  < x x x

This one was about two years ago. (My son was making me laugh...)

This one ... I was about 16, with my hero - my Dad. He was my hero when I was a little girl and no one ever took his place as my hero. He and I were together so much... down the basement with his microscopes when I was quite young and fascinated with what he did, watching him fix the cars every weekend, telling jokes together that no one else could understand, and eventually in my 20s, we took night school courses together, such as ESP! He sends me ladybugs and dragonflys to let me know he's around me. One night last week I had five ladybugs fly around me when I was at the computer. They landed on me and on the computer and just stayed for awhile. Believe it or not! I do!

And those curls on my head in that Santa picture? Did anyone ever have a perm done in those days? NIGHTMARE! The things they used scorched and burned one's scalp and I cried all the way through having them. Boy, I hated perms with a passion. My mother made me get them until I was about 8 yrs. old and then my hero (my Dad) saved me and said I didn't have to have them anymore... because I said I was going to run away from home if she made me go. Of course, I was going to take my best dolly (named Molly) and her clothes with me!!

I met a lady at the store yesterday when I was shopping that walks in my Mom's old neighborhood where I use to live and grew up in, and she said that the new people that live in our old house we just left a few years ago when Mom died, cut down all the trees in the front yard! I was just devastated, choked up and cried this morning.  I ate a bunch of icecream last night untill I blew up. Think of all the birds and animals homes that were destroyed!  It just broke my heart.  But I feel better now that I cried a  little.  I spend more time chocked up and hurting than crying.  My sister and I thought that would probably happen.  But I can't tell her.  She is even more sensitive than I. 

Please pray for the birds and animals whose homes were taken away due to ignorant people.  It is so sad.  Thank you my dear friends.

Great pics there ladies.thanks Cheryl always wanted to top the bill in lights too.
yes you will certainly get into Jib jab now with those pics.  watch this space!  lol
Angel can you tell me how you are trying to post a pic? I may be able to help.
That's a shame about the trees Barbara I had a neighbour cut the top off my 
Eucalyptus tree without my permission because they reckoned it was affecting their TV aerial !!  I  was mad at seeing the stump at the top of tree.

But it has grown again so they wasted their time.
They don't even live there now!
I had a perm when young and I had some children ask me if it was a wig!!!   lol
But my mother used to do my hair up in strips of rags to make ringlets,I hated them!!!
Cheryl here is your request.........

Love all the photos, Lily I have tried copying and pasting and also tried inset image but doesnt seem to happening for me, Any help would be greatly appreciated 

4 months ago

Angel, here is a link to Frank's Computer Shop group thread on how to post images on Care2.  Given the problems with the Care2 photo Albums I would recommend using Photobucket instead of a Care2 album.  It's a long read, but should teach you everything you need to learn.  Good Luck.

https://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=30372&pst=1601795

Well I am not having any problems posting graphics in care2 albums.

A lot of peoples problems is that they try to post a too large image which needs resizing first.
most of my photos I take myself I nearly always have to do it because images are very large and will not post unless you do.
I use image editor to do mine.

Free Online Image Editor

some pics may take a little while to upload there but having patience is worth it and it has other interesting things you can add to your pics.
Angel hope yu are clicking on my links as well as looking at the pics

Lily, the problem with the Care2 albums has affected many people who no longer have access to the photos they have stored there.  Also some browsers do not seem to allow uploading your photos to the albums.  Many people are complaining in F&S about not being able to access their photos for more than 2 years.  Or have access to only a few but not all of them.  Yet others have few or no problems.  Things got messed up when Care2 installed more servers a couple of years ago from what I remember. 

4 months ago

Yes I know I have many missing myself but new ones go in without any problems.~
I think it is other browsers that are stopping  a lot of people now so not care2.
That said I don't think we will get those pics back now after so long although some still show in thumbnails.
I have never had any luck with that image tool thing mentioned in that link you gave Angel above.
For me the copy and paste has always been the easiest and I do these really fast 

even if I have to take them to the image editor first, a matter of practice makes perfect I think for some.
anyway I am sure Angel will sort it in the end, myself I never had any instructions on how to do anything on the internet when I first had my pc so anyone can learn stuff in time.

4 months ago

I've never used that tool either.  I learned from Zen, but all my links to the relevant threads and posts are no good now since her groups were deleted.  Wish I'd have saved the emailed posts instead!

I use Photobucket.  It is easy to upload the images to my album from pictures I've downloaded to the computer.  I edit them for size, and use the replace link to replace the original, for posting in group postings and then wait until the next day as it takes a few hours for the size to take.  Then all I have to do is click on the direct link to the photo I want to use and insert that into the box that opens when I click on the little tree icon on the right hand side of the Reply to Topic box where we type our posts.  It usually takes me less than 20 minutes to upload, describe, tag and size more than a dozen photos.  Putting them in a group post takes only a few seconds.

You can do some effects too on Photobucket, including adding text to the picture, but I don't have time to learn how to do that.  Quick & easy is my preferred method as I'm always short of time these days.  There is also a special place to import images from Facebook but since I don't have a page there have never used it.  There was a way to drag a picture from any website to your album but that seems to be gone too now.

It's heartbreaking to think how many people didn't have backups of their pictures and were relying on Care2 to keep them safe and secure and now cannot access them.  Keeping everything crossed Care2 fixes that problem.

4 months ago

I did save my billboard once, should be on computer somewhere but where who knows  lol 
But I keep hoping those that were on there come back to save me a job putting ones back!
It's funny really how it is just some and not all of them that disappeared.
i have Photobucket but I don't use it much they are always changing things round too.
I don't have facebook either and don't want it.
I do have pics on Flickr but haven't been there in a while.

Hi everyone. Thanks for the great pictures, Lily. I have Johnny Depp in there with me! I'm not a huge fan of George, but I LOVE CARY GRANT! Wow, those are sexy pics! What a lot of fun that is and thanks for the link. I wish I had that much hair now! That's a great pic with your sweet Harry at the park.

Barb, I am so sorry to hear about those trees. I know EXACTLY how you feel and I have cried when they've taken trees down around where I live. The big one I had in my little back yard was taken down, and a big one on the other side of the fence next door was taken down. There was a HUGE absence of birds and squirrels after that. Even putting the bird feeder out in winter doesn't bring many like before. I just hate it when a perfectly healthy tree is taken down for some dumb reason - like an antenna! But there is some good news... most likely your trees blew the seeds that have started new little trees, maybe down the street or close by, just like one of our trees did. I have been nurturing a baby tree for two years now. It sprouted in the ground near the big trunk/roots of its mother! Your trees live -- just in a different place. Trees have an enery, just like humans and animals, that can't be destroyed. Take heart, sis!

Mary, glad you like the pictures. They were fun to do of such a sweet couple! Thanks to Lily supplying us with that link.

Sue, I use Photobucket all the time and have many hundreds of pics there. It's great for that even though they have little glitches from time to time. They have just made changes but there's nothing too drastic to worry about. I do find the Online Image Editor more useful as to sizing and text. A lot more choices. IT WAS AWFUL when I lost all my albums here in Care2. I still haven't gotten over the shock of losing a few hundred pics. In that other group I read where some people lost pics of family they can't replace. I WILL NEVER use Care2 albums again!! I sure miss Zen too. She was awesome at helping everyone. I wish they hadn't deleted her groups.

Angel, gosh I hope you can get the posting of your pics sorted out. Crazy glitches for some people and not for others. Hope info given by Sue and Lily helps.

I need to go to bed now so I will return to try out more pics. OH.... here's a little video of my wonderful little Tweets having a spray mist bath. He's at least 25 years old, blind in one eye, doesn't fly anymore (can't navigate and it's dangerous re bumping into walls) but he is going strong in many other ways. I haven't even told the rest of my family or many friends about this video yet. It was such a hot day and he had such a good time getting soaked.

Thanks Lily and Mary for the kind words about Mom's trees and anyone else that said anything kind.

So sorry to hear about your mom's trees, Barb dear. I remember when the two huge shade trees (black olive about 12 feet tall) went down during hurricane Wilma. I know it's different because one can't be angry at Mother Nature, but losing them meant that the shade was gone from our kitchen windows (my neighbor's and mine), the birds and nests were gone and so were the cute squirrels that used to scamper all along the branches. Our condo was supposed to replace the trees but never did.

Here's an old, old pic

Beautiful pictures, Lily. You look like a combination of both your mom and dad....maybe a little more in your dad's favor? You made a lovely bride and yes, you were quite slim. I had a 22 inch waistline when I got married. Them days are gone forever!!

Your niece was beautiful. She seemed to have died very young, right? Poor thing, leaving little children behind.

Don't know how you think that Lynn I am nothing like my dad,my youngest brother is the only one like him at all.
We all take after our mum and her mum.
Yes my niece died young 33 and the youngest boy was only 11 then.
But those boys now do not keep in touch at all not even with their grandmother.

Lily, you look lovely in your latest picture. Blue becomes you!

I haven't been getting a lot of my individual mail (like from this thread). Care2 is messing up again. It's very frustrating.

This is me many moons ago. I made the sweater I'm wearing. I used to sew and knit for everyone in the family.

This was taken a couple of years before my brother passed away. He's on the far right, his older son is on the far left with his two children, my brother's grandsons Josh and Marcus in the middle. Marcus is an extremely good looking kid. Josh, the older grandson is married and has a baby boy. The family grows, thank God.

Wow , don't know where to start, , Cheryl loved all your photos, I was a daddies girl too, wish I had the photos of my parents, but my sister has them, - oh well one day ! >>love what you did framing Mary's Mom & Dad's, photo.

Mary's Mom remnds me of someone, for the life of me I can't think who, but she is a singer or an actress, very beautiful, same as Mary's Mom, with fine features, and Irish good looks, the Irish are a very good looking race.

Oh and thankyou for Luke's rock image, I am going to email it to him lol, he wil love it .
Barbara, I am sorry the new people in your old home , cut down the trees, but Like Cheryl says, the seeds will have been laid somewhere, they will grow, loads of people around me, have removed natural hedges, for fancy wooden fences, and have paved over their grass lawns. I am surrounded by greenery, front and back, I love looking at the evergreens, all native, not fir trees, I have laurels, and cherry tree shrubs, any way, when we had the terrible rain, early in the year, guess which gardens were flooded ? > (clue not mine).

Lily love your photos, think I like the one of you and your dog best, the photo of your parents is great, I remember loads of photos of my friends parents similar to your parents photo you look beautiful as a bride too .

Lynn your photos are just lovely, and wow, your nephew with Clinton, very impressive, your daughter with her daughter, at her wedding lovely, you look great in the Jumper you knitted, no end to your talents. 

Cheryl nearly missed "Bibby" so sweet , enjoying the shower you were very pretty , and you still are lovely, same as Lynn .

I must keep a closer eye on this thread, I have really enjoyed looking at all the photos, really, if I have missed mentioning anyone, I have enjoyed looking at them all.

Angel hope you can post soon

Wendy, your nieces are adorable! All dressed up and ready for school.

Lily, your brother Les was quite the cutup. Great sense of humor and sense of the absurd. Does he still have a sense of humor about anything in his life?

Angel, I'm proud of you for being able to post your picture. You're quite the beauty, young lady!

I hadn't been here for awhile and OH MY GOODNESS~~~~ awesome photos, ladies.

ANGEL ~~ you are gorgeous! We have been friends for so many years and it's so lovely to see who is behind that adorable little lion cub. lol  So happy you got to post. I did the same thing in the past... usually the one behind the camera.

Lynn, such wonderful pictures. You are a beauty - then and now, and your daughter Sue takes after you, for sure! You are just beaming with Trent, and there's no reason to ask why. He's such a sweetie. And the good humour in your family is obvious! Sewing and knitting for everyone, too? Talent galore!

Wendy, that's strange you said that about Mary's mom... I have the same feeling! She looks like someone familiar to me too, either someone I know or used to know, or an actress. Isn't that strange. If you think of that person, let me know. Maybe it's the same person I'm thinking of.  Awwww... Lucia and Livia! Adorable! Look at the shiny new shoes and pretty big smiles. I love looking at the kids' pictures. I have not been blessed yet and a wonderful medium (an actual spiritual ordained minister) told me I would have grandchildren.

Barb, I hope we get to see Baby and Beenie soon - and you! I will find a picture of that baby tree I was telling you about, that sprouted close to the stump of the beautiful big tree in my backyard that Strata had to cut down. I still want to cry when I think about it! But that baby is growing and new greenery on the tips this year.

Lily, I agree with Lynn... you look wonderful in that beautiful blue colour. Every person has their special colour. I'm still not sure what mine is. Your wedding picture is so sweet -- your very special day and you are beautiful! And you have such fun pictures of your brother. I bet there was quite a bit of laughter in your family. I can't get over how beautiful your late niece was. How tragic, so young and vibrant. Honestly, I can almost feel her energy right through my computer. She looks full of life and laughter, and a there's a great mischievious quality, if I may say so!   It's very sad the boys and other family members don't keep in touch, and I hope that will change one day. Family is important and such a waste of time when people can't just love one another. But, as in my case too with my brother, it happens, and sometimes we can't be around those who may be toxic in our lives. So then we go out and choose friends who become our family, and all in this group are certainly that to me. Love you guys!

Seeing as how I don't have grandbabies, I am posting this picture and saying that she is mine... all mine...mine... mine... mine....! Isn't she gorgeous? hee hee hee

ee I WANT HER!

Hi friends,
              That photo of my niece was taken before she married.
yes she was a fun loving person,loved animals too.
She was very pretty there but her bad health took it's toll in later years.
It was hard for her mother (my sister in law) because she was an only child;
And she had already lost her husband ,my youngest brother aged 52.
So losing her daughter was very hard on top of that.
yes I like the colour blue but actually the top in that photo is a kind of violet.
red is my all time favourite but blue  and purples etc I like a lot.
My grandmother used to say she liked me in colours best if I ever wore black or   dark clothes.
That's a cute kiddie,shame they have to grow up!
It's nice to have old photos to look back on especially when like me you are practically alone.
Such a shame that one day they will be thrown out with no one wanting them.
