Thanks Harry, for asking again, and Paul, for finding it. I'm finally gonna try it...here goes...http://i18.photobuck

Did it work?? It would be me and Flat Stanley, posing last winter for a Capital Cities school project for my grandson, Jayden. Framing stuff later.

You only cut part of the link Val, it should look something like above. Press 'Prieview Post' to check.

Eureka!

Now, if you right click on the actual photo (in photobucket) then go to 'properties' and left click - you'll see a URL link, starting with HTTP and ending with JPG.

If you cut THAT, you can paste the photo (or A.N. Other photo that you may want to add to the photobucket album) in your PROFILE.

And here all along I have had this picture in my mind of a wild raven hair down to your shoulderblades, Harley kind of gal....

And then I find out you're a Susan Powder cotton guy chasing mommy. :D

But you are standing in front of one of my favorite buildings.
The courthouse in Bridgeport is another... it even has the cannons out front.

Baer, that's my inner child now!

Don't judge by looks....I can still be kinda wild.
Who's Susan Powder???

Uh-oh. Flat Stanley and I disappeared. I deleted the photo from the Photobucket file, didn't know it would delete it from here too! Honest, it wasn't an obscene photo or anything! Will have to try again tonight, picture's in my home computer.
Always learning something!

Way to go, Val

and what a great picture. It is big, but at least it still fits in the screen width so the posts don't go really wide and need scrolling to read them.

It shouldn't be too hard to reduce the size. Don't know if you have a photo editor or not. I have Adobe Photo Elements and in that I just have to click on "Image" in the toolbar, then "resize" and then just adjust the size of the photo.

So Elaine, how DID you picture me?? (Hunchback? Witch of the West? Madonna? Gorilla Girl?) I know, when I finally get a face to go with the name, it's often a shock. I remember when I saw Paul Harvey for the first time...wow!

Karen, I have Elements too, just haven't learned how to use it yet, new computer. What the "Whew!" was for was downloading it from the camera and finding out how to get it in the right place and then finding that from Photobucket. Way different than my computer at home. From Photobucket on was easy, thanks to the Grumble instructions.

So, everyone post their picture, let's see if we all match everyone's mind-picture! Isn't there a thread on Guess the Grumbler? but you had to be at a convention or something.

Val,

Years ago we did a "Who is this Grumbler??" periodically. It was ramrodded by Ron and he would solicit photos from Grumblers that nobody had seen at the trade shows or very many knew. It was more fun when the mystery Grumbler was not well known.

We were up to about 60 some Grumblers when it sort of dropped by the wayside. Maybe somebody would like to resuscitate the "Who is this Grumbler?" again.

BTW, I had you pictured as a hairy flying big nosed kinda humped back girl with a great smile!!! :eek:

Val, I forgot to mention that you had to click on "image size" after clicking on "resize" in Photoshop Elements. You certainly can do some neat things to photos with that software. Probably Microsoft's Photoshop can do more things, but for an amateur like me, Elements is sufficient and the price was good. I bought a couple books to help me learn about the program - "Photoshop Elements 2 for Dummies" and "Top 100 Simplified Tips & Tricks for Photoshop Elements 2" - I found both to be quite helpful.

By the way, you looked a lot like I imagined you would - you have a very kind looking face.

Adobe will be surprised to learn that Microsoft has a Photoshop too.

I actually uninstalled Photoshop in favor of Photoshop Elements.

Oops, sorry Ron. I always tell people my kids know more about computers than me!
Doesn't Microsoft have a photoshop type software? I thought my brother-in-law took a "photoshop" course a few years ago that used a Microsoft product and he said he got it at a special price for being a student and it was still around $500 Canadian (I think). My Adobe Photoshop Elements was only around $100. Again, I could be mistaken about a "Microsoft" version - please enlighten me...

O.K. Here you go.... Here are a couple if pics of my new location. We have finaly settled from the move enough that I can play for a miute. Then I have to get back to figuring out how to publish my website to the web.... That is proving to be interesting..

frontdoornithwideangle.jpg


The Front Door, Banner is temporary until a make a few bucks to get the permanent sign. Gotta sell more frames first.....

backdooratnight1.jpg


Here is the back door with display windows. I know they need some work but hey, at least I got something in them.... This is on the same main road as the front door.


gallerywideangle.jpg


The inside from the front door. Workshop is in all the way to the back. Saw room is inside the room with the greemn looking windows...

So far so good on the relocation. All indications are that it was well worth it. That road you can see in the first picture has about 60K cars a day.... should be enough people that get a chance to see us.....

Wow Harry, good job! And nice shop! So much space!

I'd've posted pics of my shop instead of me and Flat Stanley and the Capital Dome, but my shop's still kind of a mess and I'm embarrassed. I'm working on that, it's small and crowded, but it's all I've got for now.

Back to work!!

Wow Harry,

That is the coolest looking shop. Your walls look Yellow from the outside, and then inside they are white. What gives?

I love the saw room idea. What kind of ventilation do you have? I struggle with that and am afraid of the damage I am doing to my lungs long term!

Great shop, Harry.
thumbsup.gif
Looks like you have lots of room.

Couldn't edit my last post... Just talked to my sister and her husband took a course on Adobe Photoshop, not a Microsoft product. Boy, do I ever feel embarrassed now.
My mess-up would fit perfectly in Sherry's thread about re-reading old posts and how many of us regret what we said shortly after saying it

The walls are a soft white. It is just the lighting. These pics were taken at dusk.

As for venting the sawroom, well, actually, um... we don't. I have a Clearmount Double miter and have tried to rig up a shop vac to collect dust but have yet to be successful.

Winnie.....!????!!! We need a vaccume system for these.......

The pictures you see on The Grumble are not actually "on" The Grumble. Every time someone loads the page with your picture on it, your computer says "hey, I need this picture from Photobucket" and Photobucket gives it to them. That's why your link looks something like this: http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b144/grumblegrumble/GrammyandFriend.jpg

If it was actually stored on The Grumble's website it would be something like:
http://[url]www.thegrumble.com/pictures/mypic.jpg[/url]

Ah-HA! So that's how that works, and why it's called Photo BUCKET! The bucket holds the photo until you don't need it anymore. Learning, learning! (That's why my avatar is building bocks!)
Thanks David.
