Allan1, you're not trying to get me a nice cease and desist note from the AP are you? ;)
Aw shucks, you shouldn't have. That's so sweet, you know exactly what to get a geekgal! Airkisses! Please note that I am not sarcastic, I'd love to see one of those C&D's

Exaaaactly. But that's what they seem to have a problem with so, hey, there ya go. I promise to frame the C&D if I get one. :)

You need to scan it and post it when/if you get one...

I used to have my first one scanned (Universal Studios, back in 1999) but I never post any as I find it kind of tacky. says the gal who just pin-upped while feeding Jolt to her daughter, yeah sure, so I don't make much sense...
