I'm really scraping the barrel (or should I say the bottom of the poolSmile) for new uploads now, all I could find were a couple of spiders yesterday, hiding from the still continuing winds.

HI Carol, I can only open V1. My internet is next to nil here in Lake Havasu. In the clubhouse I can get out for maybe a few minutes. Your spider is excellent, such good detail and I'm sure the other 2 are also. You've never put on anything that isn't superb. I want to thank you for your UA while I still can. Just seen that and was very surprised. I wasn't at all sure what people would think of it. After yesterdays so colourful, I like to try always for different. And this one was the opposite of colourful. So, thank you so much. I won't have good internet for another 2 weeks unfortunately. So excuse me if you don't hear from me again til then.......Sandy
