Happy Dancer

Yesterday morning was spent having a new modem installed in our office; plus our computer speed was increased; it's worth every penny. Late morning we left with Fiona for the Oregon State Fair; great fun. (By accident on my part, my photographs were submitted to the Fine Art Exhibit rather than the Photography Exhibit. The "Tiny Cala Lilies - B&W" was the only photograph accepted for the Fine Art Exhibit. I felt quite honored.) An exhausting day.

A lovely dancing nymph !
Congratulations on your acceptance into the fine art exhibit !
(I know the joy of a high speed computer...
I recently had to get a new one and this computer is smokin' !!)

@DULCIE: The high speed is with the server. I bumped up my computer speed by going from 4GB to 8GB of RAM.
