Clockwise from top left (man pointing is my hubby) hubby, marko, dave, growler, scuba (and of course Lucy is sleeping on Marko's foot)

Fred decided to cooperate after Marko and Dave had to leave to catch the ferry. Desi was around earlier a bit but is very camera shy.

Fred can be bribed to visit with treats :D.

Very neat pics! Nice to put faces to more names!! :D Now I know what my potential kittynapper looks like I can head her off at the pass. ;)
Love ya' growler. :)
Looks like Fred might be a "victim" too soon. Be careful Teri!! ;)

That pic of Fred mesmerizing Scuba is great! :laughing:

:cat:: "You will give the kitty treats. You will give the kitty something yummy. You will pet the kitty!" :laughing:

Looks like a great time was had by all! :D But Teri! There's no pics of you! I hope marko rectifies that little problem!

:cloud9: The perfect day... Even the weather cooperated! :thumbs up

Hey GREAT Pics there everyone! Cool I see a lot of shots that i took that now i don't have to post! LOL.

I'll try hard to post a few later tonight...but just got checked in now and need food...so hungry. The ferry ride over here (Van island) is wicked cool! Great wind at the front of the ferry!

Thanks again Teri and D. (I'm sure I'll mispell) for hosting and it was really great to meet growler scuba and all of teri's furkids!

Sincerely Marko (dave too)

What great pics! Now I really wish I had been able to attend. Just as well I hadn't planned it though, had a migrane all weekend on top of the renos. But it was so nice that you folks were able to meet up and Teri was so nice to host. And the furbabies were on good behavior and had their best camera faces on. Yay. Oh and let's not forget that Vancouver put on her best weather performance too!!

Um...but if I was going to Vancouver, New Jersey would be way out of the way! :laughing: NJ is way east of here, aslan! :o

Maybe Kathryn will have to bus out here, first, and then drive up with us! :thumbs up :D I hope you don't mind 4 dogs sitting on your lap at once, Kathryn. :laughing:

Hey, marko, great pics, as usual! :thumbs up Those puppy portraits are gorgeous! :cloud9:

Desi the Tortie :lovestruck: came out to sort-of greet me when I got there, but she disappeared soon after, unfortunately no one else got to meet her.

Well this "little young thing" as you put , is actually 31 :o :D

I think I can say that everyone had a good time :thumbs up

Lucy & Riley were definately fond of Scuba even more after he brought out some treats for them. Fred was rather intrigued with Scuba :D

Chico, don't worry about Desi (tortie). She is definately a very much loved member or our family but she gets freaked out when I try to take her pic so unfortunately unless I can surprise her I don't get many pics :sad:. She is also definately a "family" cat and really isn't all that interested in people other then hubby or myself.

Marko, I love those pics of Riley and Lucy :cloud9:. The lighting on Riley is wonderful!

I would like to post a few pictures but how do I make pictures smaller so that they will not be over 100kb in size?

breeze
September 11th, 2008, 07:55 AM
scuba

:sorry::offtopic:

this is the program I use. it is very easy
here are the instructions

http://irfanview.com/

1) Once you have downloaded the program find the picture you want to resize.
2) Double click and it should open in irfanview
3) Once it opens click on the top where it says image look at the list. It should say resize/resample click on that.
4) on the right hand side you will see numbers 640x480…….800/600 and so forth I usally use the 640 or the 800 click on one of them..
5) then click on ok. The picture will be resized..
6) go to the top and click on file (left hand side)
7) then click on “save as” two boxes will appear. One will be where you want to save the picture to (a different file) the second will be the file size put your curser over the little box you see and move it so that the number on top of the little box says 38.. the lower the number the smaller the file, you will still have a big picture..
8) make sure when you save it one of the boxes on where your going to save it says JEPEG it on the bottom of the big box and click ok..


hope this helps
