Gulf Island Building.


Thanks Keith. But I consider it more of a miracle that I explained it well enough for someone to understand.

I got a picture this evening of the moon through the trees up here in Petoskey, similar to yours. Then I turned the flash on and snapped another one, just to see how it would turn out. The trees were lit up and the moon looked orange. I'll try to post the pic when I get home.

Hmmmmmm, now I got to try it one more time since it worked for you. Here is supposed to be the picture.



OK, I have clicked on the paper clip and uploaded the picture but there is nothing that shows numbers or anything. I hit the enter twice and wrote this text. Now let's see if it worked.

If you want to put pictures in a specific order, here's what I do. Sorry if it ends up not making sense or if I'm telling you something you already know.

Type what you want to say first.

Hit the 'enter' button on your keyboard to move the cursor down 2 spaces.

Click on the little paperclip at the top of the box. A window will open giving you a list of the pics you've just uploaded.

Click on the picture you want.

Some words and numbers in parenthesis will show up where your cursor was. Move your cursor to the end of that line and hit your 'enter' button twice again to double-space. Leaving these double spaces makes it possible for you to go back later and add text or another picture.

At this point, you can add more text or click on the paperclip to add the next picture.

Repeat.

Hope this helps.

Barb
Good gravy do I feel stupid, I did exactly as Barb says here but it doesn't work for me. Note Barb says "Some words and numbers in parenthesis will show up where your cursor was". This does not happen for me, nothing shows up at all, even my cursor is gone. Maybe my settings are wrong or something. Oh well, I will just have to except the fact that I can't do it for some reason.

Hi Jim. Try uploading the picture first. Then when you click on the paperclip, you'll see the info from your picture. When you click on that, the actual picture won't show up, but some letters and numbers in parenthesis will appear wherever your cursor is placed.

Then you can continue to add text or submit your reply if you're done.

After you click on the 'submit' button, the picture will appear.

Whew, thanks buddy, I thought for a little while there I had over stepped the line posting the pictures. I am just a silly ole man who loves to see people have fun and smile. I will try to behave myself from now on.

We now have a handrail on one side of the short steps off the tub deck. No idea when I may get around to doing the other side though...

It almost seems like a real shame that I need to turn the table top into a dust bowl every morning...but that's how you eventually get a nice smooth finish.

...but then, just a few minutes with the varnish brush and things start looking up again.

First thing this morning I tried to do an entire row on the top railing in one go.

I had to dig up some more clamps to cover the whole lot at once. This is going to work OK until I get to 6" wide...then I won't be able to use the 6" clamps beyond that...

Keith, all that work we see on the other side of that hand rail is what amazes me. Another thing that amazes me is you can use regular wood working tools and not be on the grid. How many amps will your system handle?

My stars, a fly won't have a chance to land on your table as smooth and slick as it will be, it looks great buddy.

Jim

We must have posted about the same time, gorgeous home!
