Oh Shit I'm Melting...What A World by Trippy4U Oh Shit I'm Melting...What A World by Trippy4U
Thank you kindly for taking the time to have a look.
I'm sincerely grateful for your support :peace:

Oh my my what a Super Bowl Sunday surprise. I never expected to come back from a two day absence and discover a DD waiting on my doorstep. Maybe I should go away more often (or permanently as some would wish) :lol:
And maybe since I'm on this lucky streak I should empty my bank account and place a hefty bet on the Seattle Seahawks to win it all today :lol:
But the real reality is I must thank Mary :iconmyraincheck: for this so appreciated accolade. My deepest gratitude and sincerest thanks go out to her for this honor.
Mary, IMHO, should be adorned with this community's highest praise for the "bang-up" job she has been doing as DA's Street CV. In its darkest hour, when none would rise to the challenge, she stood up and took the bull by the horns to keep this genre of photography viable and in the public's eye :thumbsup:
For this, more than for any other reason, we all must thank her...and we do :tighthug:

Oh Shit I'm Melting...What A World by *Trippy4U Well, it certainly rained on their parade. In a sea of heads, graduation hats and umbrellas, the photographer caught the forlorn look of one of the boys. ( Featured by myraincheck )

Thanks and I really wish you had made that bet. If you reply back to this I'll check your gallery also. I'd do it now but am starting to feel sick. I have a bottom 6% in the country memory otherwise I would remember without the reminding.

It's a combination of poor diet and genetics. Starting with my grandma at the latest our families been troubled with memory problems. My grandma will tell us the same thing each time we come now it's getting to be the same story told 2 or 3 times when we are there. My mom is losing track of what she says half the time and instead of saying she got the pills filled she said phils pilled. I think a lot of it has to do with generations of stressful living due to the woman in my family for generations looking for men that would treat them as abusively as their father. My mom married an alcoholic womanizer, then she married an emotionally abusive know it all who at the time didn't even know how to take a bath. My sisters married men even worse. My grandma had good men, the first died due to a drunk driver, and the second when she started cheating on him became extremely abusive, the third abused her children and treated her poorly.

Well you seem to have a good understanding and a handle on it. It was their lives and their mistakes...not yours. Your duty is to break the chain and in someway I think you already have :ahoy:

Thank you and I wish I had but their children are already following the same mistakes and they are just kids. Not behaving, screaming, not listening, being know it alls, being into bad boys and farmers that don't give them the time of day in the case of the oldest.

I don't know about that...I see myself as just another slub in a sea of many but I do appear to have a lucky star and for that I am grateful.
Truth be told I've had more than my fair share and I feel somewhat guilty on one hand to get them while others much better at this profession than me don't have any. But then on the other hand...I'm as happy as a pig in shit that I do :lol:
Thank you very much, Greg...I do appreciate your support and opinions always :highfive:

:lol: Hardly...I never expect them and so its always a surprise if i do. I check to see if any of my friends/watchers got one. Many do...plus I like to to see what's shaking in the art world as the DD's cover many genres. Its a could cross section barometer. I like many different forms of art and the DD pages show some of the best in each.
