I tried this a couple weeks ago, and it crashed and burned. Let's see how high the flames are this time. (G!)

Well, the flames aren't TOO high. It works, sort of...

You have to right click on where the photoimage is supposed to be, and then click "view image."

You'll see a picture of my favorite Ruger...

You were one click away! Go to the bad link and right click it select "view picture". It takes you to a webpage with your photo. Right click AGAIN select "view picture" you are now looking at the picture only (has jpg extension). Copy and paste url. >http://ic.yimg.com/c/3d508886/h/e416110e/rugerpix.jpg<

I like your dog. If I had a dog I'd name him ruger too.

Shok,

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

I've been going nuts trying to figure this out!

As for Ruger, she's a girl.

She named herself. She was "arrested" at about 6 months of age when her owners were caught with a gun in Washington DC.

I was along for the ride with my friend, a cop. As the only civilian, I was asked to hold the dog. When I went over to the car, she was lying on the back seat with the muzzle of a gun pointing out from between her paws.

Yep, it was a Ruger Blackhawk revolver.

I knew at that moment I had to try to adopt her.

Best, most intelligent dog I've ever had.

Guys, I get nothing in Shok's or by right clicking the icon and clicking on "show picture". Dadgum dog nappers.

Why George if I didn't know better I would think you didn't trust us down here in S,Q & C.

Shok,
I'm getting the same problem reported above. I think you may have a problem here.

"....testing a photo link. Bear with me, please..."

I don't see a bear. Thought it was suppose to be a picture of a dog. Besides why would anyone want to have a shot snapped with a Ursa Major? Way too dangerous...

have tape, will travel...

Ohh. "bear". b.e.a.r. Thank goodness.

At first I thought you said "bare" and was afraid Gunslinger was wearing that danged hat again.

Whew!
