Patience is a virtue, and trials serve to develop character.
Given enough opportunity via trials and tribulations, I hear you might have your name bandied about in Rome.
They have a process there by which "sainthood" is conferred.
I think Blogger/Picassa should receive the Vatican's "Saint-making Seal of Approval" due to all the trials and tribulations that have been afflicted upon the lowly bloggers of this present age.
It's just that most afflicted bloggers use such shocking language as they post on the help pages.
No St. for you!
I'm refraining from using words with vowels while expressing my frustration, to keep from accidental saltiness.
I use sound effects like:
Ch ch ch
(Lamaze breathing helps...)
Anyway, just to let you know, I am one-by-one attempting to reload the missing pictures on my blog.
You are welcome to flatter yourselves that I am so concerned about your visual entertainment and your intellectual enlightenment about Texas dentist offices that I am willing to go to the tedious trouble of posting pictures to one site, copying said picture's htlm, then opening Jill's World, logging in, and pasting html.
Over and over again.
But us St. types are honor bound to tell the truth.
I plan to eventually have each year of posts printed out in hard copy and bound for future generational um...(drat, that truth thing again...I want to say pleasure, but more likely it is...) boredom.
Red Xboxes just won't cut it.
It is bad enough that I have to always be watchful for grammar and spelling errors on each post so as not to alienate current readers.
I'm hopeful that future generations will continue to care about spelling and grammar, despite the failure of my current relentless battle with my own children to cease and desist from using such phrases as "Me and Erik" and "Me and them".
(All it took was public school for high school and bang, their private school grammar education was shot.)
Thank you all very much for letting me know when pictures are not displaying properly.
It really is an encouragement.
Please let me know about typos and errors too. I won't be offended at all!
I'll just correct the errors and not publish that comment, so it can stay a comment just between friends.

PS: A quick check on Bernie's computer (different server) shows that now pictures that did show last night have gone AWOL again.
The Texas ironing board that I posted this morning does show for now.
I'll hold off on any additional attempts to re-do the missing pictures until all this electronic tomfoolery resolves.
