    vale019, Our Canterbury Grownups group loved our Bitofado to The Oamaru Victorian Heritage Festival. We rented a house on the hill together  Thanks for the sharing of the memory. 😀

    Really beautiful paintings, Bobbity. Any of them yours??????? Clever you with the 6 pics per post. It’s a lot of fiddling about with the Edit though, don’t you think? Ain’t nuttin’ straight forward on this site …. sigh. However, even though it takes up a lot of my day, I love the different threads & especially the people I have met on here. hugs-blue-fuzzy

    No Val, sadly none of them are mine,. I can only draw people.  Love my blue hugger, thanks…  🙂

    I put 3 pics up and then decided to add another, so when I went to edit there were 3 more I could add. I opened edit once again and there were even more waiting…  lol,  so I stopped right there.   What I don’t like is to have to edit to make them appear in the comment box.

    Val, maybe a rest from so much digital work is needed for a while?  Maybe??  🙂 Maybe cut back a little?  Very neat pics from you in the past 2 pages , and the video too.

    Hi Doc- that would have been a great place to be during the Victorian Heritage Festival.  They are so lucky that they still have their beautiful golden buildings. They lend character to their township.

    Thanks for your kind words & your neat pictures, Kai. Your words in particular keep us going [hugs]

    A post of mine has gone missing???? I left a message apologising for the double post & it is nowhere to be seen??? .
    Nothing would go right when I tried to post the buildings post – 3 times I tried & each time received a different error message and then it took me back to Page 1. Couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it had posted twice. And now a complete message has disappeared!!!
    Incidentally, I have found that if I put words in a square bracket they don’t show up in the post???

Incidentally, I have noticed several times that some words have disappeared from the text when I make a post. (I think it is something to do with having words in a bracket)

    That’s alright Val, now all my notifications are being hidden by my mail server. before that they were all going into junk and I had to keep recuing them. I was thinking that no one had posted anything anywhere on GUps and eventually went into the site to see for myself.  I have tried and tried to prevent it happening. A real power struggle digitally for many of us on here.  🙂

    I think some words disappear because, while typing, a word or letter is accidentally highlighted, and when the space bar is pressed, all the highlit areas disappear. That happens a lot to me.  🙂

    Hi Bobbity – That must be so frustrating for you. I used to have a notification for each thread but they filled up my mailbox so I stopped that. I have put a shortcut on my desktop which opens directly into the Games threads so I just check from there.
    I have just worked out the words disappear if I put them in a square bracket… having said that I noticed the word [hug] showed up in the message to Kai.  Why this should happen I have no idea??

    I’m just going to give this a test run. Ok it stayed there again. I’m trying another test run – I am putting a sentence into a bracket to see what happens.
    [Will these words appear on the page or will they not]

    lol – so much for my theory! The last time I tried that the words in the brackets did not appear but when I removed the brackets & reposted there they were. All very confusing!!

    Very neat and funny posts Val. It’s true re funny questions and theories about lil ol’ NZ. Have seen comments on the net from people overseas. One thought that the ‘natives’ are still wearing grass skirts and jumping out from behind trees with an axe in hand.  😆

    Now, the disappearing act of your words. Did the brackets disappear as well as the words?  😀

    I love all GUppies
