Hi Lyn, it was a photo from my iPad, it wasn't clear either, but I wasn't sure how? I thought email but what email? I was told if I scan the original, I would get a better picture, it's in that secret place, I forgot where. Yes it's hard learning new forums. Is it ok to message you. Thanks for your help.

I have a laptop and iPad. I thought I could email. Then said idiot you can't cause I haven't got an email Address, me and technology, Lol . That's why I asked if I could message you how to do it? Still looking for my picture.

When you posted your earlier posts you started with a screen like this below. At the bottom (pointed to with an arrow) is a button which, if you click on it, will take you to the files on your computer. If you then choose the picture on your computor and click on open it should put your picture into your post, and then you just click on reply button to post onto the forum.

Hi Marie, I know it's great. It seems you were mischievous. My mother was a cleaner at the Sheet Metal Works, it was handy living across the road.
