    Guys, Evangilder,GrauGiest, Gnomey, GeeDee, Trackend, HoHun, and more. All of your tutoring is finally paying off. The camera club that I am the President of had a Photography show that started this week and runs through July 16th. We had our open house today which I worked the whole time and and had fun doing.
    Two women came in and were looking around and asked if I had in photos in the show. I told them my name and let them know that I had four in the show that were tagged with my name. I had the marked NFS (not for sale) because one, I had now clue how much to ask for them and two I didn't think anyone would be that interested in them. Low and behold the younger women comes up and asked me if I would take $100.00 for my black and white photo. Needless to say it took me about three minutes to get my jaw off the floor. I studdered y y y y essss. The Arts Depot gets one third of the price and pays the taxes so I didn't do to bad.:oops: To you guys I owe a H-U-G-E thank you.:notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: Oh and this is the one she purchased.
