I never got a picture and bio from you.

Please resend to bfn50gallery@aol.com

Thanks.

(I need BOTH a bio and a pic. I have two submissions of the bio only, and followups by me have so far resulted in no picture)

OK, are you saying you are not in the collage?

If not, that is easily fixed. The collage was quite an endeavor, as I did it from two different computers, sometimes while traveling, and I had to remember to download the master for my image program each time before making changes, and then upload it with the latest changes incorporated when finished. Then with the other computer the same process. At times, I may have forgotten that step and used not-the-latest master image, possibly leaving someone out.

Let me know.

Denver....... I'm sorry, I really am. I was joking. OK, bad joke. I'm sorry. I apologize. I don't know how else to say it. Really, I'm sorry for the comment. See the smiley faces? That means a joke was involved. See my reference to George Burns? One of the greatest comedians ever.... I'm sorry.

You will never be forgiven, and perhaps you will suffer banishment. As pennance, you must stay away from BFN50+ for at least one hour.

Well, we have a number of folks who have "cheated" a bit - i.e., Pastor Bob - and we entered them into the Rogue's Gallery on a "trial" basis!

Your entry is welcome.

Where are the women? Not posters. Women inquiring about me? Wasn't their an implicit agreement I would get lonely female cyclists asking for a date? Isn't this part of Match.com? DeeGee and I signed up for dates. So, send us dates. Come on, Dnvr...they were supposed to be coming in the windows by now was my understanding..

OK, take your choice. You want dates, I got dates!



JANUARY 5TH


MARCH 10TH


DECEMBER 29TH

JULY 31ST


SEPTEMBER 20TH


This is about as close as you and DG will ever get to "dates" considering your report on Starbucks and dates a few months ago!
