This is farewell!

I’ve reached my storage limit for these two blogs germanicusfink.wordpress.com and http://squidfoot.wordpress.com/, so I can no longer bring you weird, funny or even alarming images any longer! But no worries mate, I’ve just started a new one, http://mrweedwacker.wordpress.com/. I can still post videos here, but I need a place to post images, especially since I have made it my goal to get my Dell fixed next month and get a graphics program uploaded to it. Hopefully something better than gimp. I have an old photoshop disc around here somewhere, although I don’t entirely trust it since the guy who burned it for me was kinda sketchy, and also supposed to be some kind of computer genius. Karen had a copy at home, so I hope when she goes home to help her parents that she will remember to grab that disc for me!

OK guys! Gotta go!

Come see me at:

It was there that, in 1906, 15-year-old Audrey was noticed by photographer Ralph Draper. Captivated by her looks, he presented the girl to his noted sculptor friend Isidore Konti, who was similarly taken under her spell.

She was beautiful; there is no denying that. And her looks captured…
