They are all black right now Doug, but will be grey once they are completed.

edit: because they are links, it wouldn't let me color them grey. I've italicised them instead.

Good evening Young lady!

I haven't seen a lot of mentioning on CLOUDS!!! We've all layed on a grassy bank and stared up and them, looked at them and everyone has seen bunnys, birds, whales, etc. etc, etc. in them.

How about a Theme on Clouds?

Just a suggestion and a tiny, little question?

Dakota

Ok you two!!!! I sit corrected!! If I were younger and had better legs, I would stand corrected!

Just got carried away!! I had just taken a picture of some very interesting clouds and they were on my mind! anyway, what little there is left!!!

So I won't seem like too much of an Idiot, how about the close up of refections in someone's eye!

Huh? Huh How about that you smarty pants!! Well, how about it??

Ok! How about a shot with the reflection of Athena and Judy, riding dolfins through the Milky Way in one of Mr. Pickle's eye? Say his right eye!

Hummmmmmmm! Sound ok to me!

Dakota

Of course I would do it but I just broke my latter!
