Here is something I put together so I can copy and paste it to help with posting pictures.
Most of us use free Photobucket accounts.
 www.photobucket.com
We recommend clicky pics.  This is a thumbnail picture that enlarges when clicked.
Photobucket has made a change in the way you copy the code.
Here is the way it looks to me:
For a single clicky pic, hover over the picture.  This will open a drop down menu.  Click on the fourth window, img.
It will then say "copied".
Go to the thread where you want to put the picture and paste it in.
For multiple clicky pics, hover over the pictures and click on the small box at the bottom of the picture.
Scroll down and click on "Choose action".  Click "Generate code for selected".
This will open another page.  Click on the third box, "IMG for bulletin boards & forums".  It will say "copied".  Paste it into the thread of your choice. 
In both instances you can select "Preview" to make sure it is what you want before you post it.
I'm right 98% of the time, and I don't care about the other 3%.

LOL, well I am pondering dumping my wagon if the new caddy comes this way, but I will procrastinate and it will sit in the yard longer.

Hi all :hello:

   The 5 were loaded last night and now are on their way to the "Eaglepatch".  When we tried to push the first one up onto the trailer the angle of the car going up on the ramp caused the bumper of the pusher to break a tail lite.  SOooo.. Sean had to use the trailer hydraulics to move the cars onto it. It was hot and humid too .. we were sweatin'. Like an artist with a brush and canvas, he extended, retracted, pushed, pulled, lowered, lifted, tilted, and with a little help from gravity he got them all loaded.  I'll post some picts ... got to resize them first, but the one above is a good start.

                                             Regards, Iron Horse ;D
