Wow, Joe! Nice family! I think your newfound son bares a striking resemblance to you. I can't tell about the eyes because he is wesring glasses, but he sure has your ears, nose, and smile. I really like the pic of the three of you together. Your daughter is beautiful! I'm so glad things have turned out so well for you!

Good looking family all together now and your son looks just like you. Glad you had a nice time. So how did you finally get your pics to show up. I would like to know. Maybe I can learn a new technique :[IMG]/camera7.

jw, I didn't do anything special. I backed off from the Photo Bucket awhile and went back to try it again and it came up to where I could download my pics. So, I was able to get the pics downloaded and get there here so that all of you could see them. Sorry, they are so big...but I got them on here anyway.

Thanks, frog. The weekend couldn't have gone any better, if I had tried. At one point, my son told me that he felt more comfortable with this side of the family than he did with the other side. He is a very introverted young man, like his father, and quite serious alot of the time. We had some good talks and I was able to tell him some of what I have wanted to tell him for the last 20 years. We talked and laughed and joked around.....all the time enjoying each others company. I even took him to the target range where he got to shoot my pistols. He had never shot a pistol before and he didn't do too badly. All I know is that telling him bye monday was one of the hardest things that I have had to do in a long time. Depending on when he can get some leave time again, he might be back for the 4th of July. Everyone over here told me that my son looks alot like me....but that he looks alot better than me. lol

No forum I've ever been on can download one from your PC, an avatar yes but not a picture.

I always just uploaded my pictures from my computer on AP's site. There is a button above the text box on this site when you post a reply that says"Host an image" but I've never been able to get it to work.

I don't store my pictures on photobucket so if I wasnt to post a picture I have to take the extra step to put it there first.

Ok so I just did a test and if you click on the Host an image box and browse to your my computer pictures and choose one and open it it will show in the box next to where file is selected. Leave the size at 800px and click the button where it says host it. Then choose either the top file for very small picture or the 2nd one down for a big picture. If you choose the last one it will just open as a link. I copied it by clicking Ctrl and c on my keyboard and then pasted it to my post and I did a preview and it worked! So now you can get a picture off your computer or use photobucket instead.......either way will work ex[pillow]

I got it to work this way one time. After selecting my image and clicking "host it" I usually get another box asking for my e-mail adress & password and giving me the choice to join or log in. When I sign in nothing happens and I have to back out of everything. Now I am having problems deleting my avitar. I have changed avitars several times without a problem but now I get a window saying there is a problem with the website. Sheesh

Maybe you need to clear your cache on this page? I do that every now and then myself.
I did not have any problem loading the pics this time but I will try again sometime and see if it is still working fine. I saw no box asking for my email address.

Already tried clearing the cache a day or two ago. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

I spoke to my son on the computer today, sunday, and he is back on the base now. With everything that we did last weekend with eating out, shopping, the family reunion and all, the thing that apparently he enjoyed the most was when him and I went to the gun range and shot my pistols. He said today that " honestly can't wait to go shootin again sometime". He had never shot pistols before and said that the next time he will borrow my brother's rifle so that he "can show me something". lol I guess that no one can ever be sure but I believe that him and I bonded some when he was down here. He is planning, depending on his leave time, to come back for the 4th of July. I can hardly wait.
