I've been watching your keyboard art with curiosity for a few days now,
I was a little taken aback by your "Chicks with beards" graphic. You see,
I saw the quote marks as a clavical, the circle as the belly button and then
is that beard thing, well you get the picture. But I am relieved to find
it is really an Airedale.;-0

To keep this on topic, are you photographing the plate from above?

Ohhhh my goodness LOL I never saw this ROFLMAO now now angela where
is your mind thanks for the n'yuk n'yuks !!! any how this is my
puppy Curly and what passes as a cat ... the reference to chicks with beards
rule is the fact that I am of the age that all my friends are getting beards
why not my dog !!!! ps think menopause !!

ON topic the platters are shot mostly mid level and duct tape not
masking tape used .. I Wanna see the whole thing, not from an angle... I'll
gladly send a picture to anyone that wants to see it or send it to someone that
knows how to put it on a web site so it can be seen for lots of folks... I
have NO GEEK in me all that talent went to my youngest brother...
