The blog was hijacked by PHOTOBUCKET several weeks back.
Photobucket has always been an online photo service that of stored and managed photos for free. I guess they felt the need to boost revenues this year and without warning suddenly began charging service fees. Any photos previously saved and shared from their website were held hostage. The ransom price was $399 to be paid annually in order to get their warning labels taken off your webpage.
I did not use their service, but parts of the webpage itself contained Photobucket images. I had not control over those things. It has taken me a few weeks to figure out a workaround that allows the blog to remain intact without those images.
Thus the new and somewhat awkward look.
I'll do an updated design someday. It was due for a refresh anway!
And since I'm supposed to be catching up on pictures....and that's what you click here to see anyway....here's more random shots from the zoo....
Pool at Grandma's house
And pool of the cold and wet kind. This was taken on the last day of the season.
Based on the hesitation Grant shows and the lack of other people, you can accurately guess what the water temperature was.
