    Everyone can rest assured, that if you posted your picture prior to midnight last night, PST (the time is shown on your email), that it will be accepted if it is the correct size. If it didn't meet the size requirement, Josh will allow you to re-submit the same picture at the correct size.

    I'm assuming the voting deadline will be extended once the entries are up? :tort:

    I hope whomever is putting the pictures up for voting/running the contest is alright, not sick or injured, and that his/her tortoises are okay too.
    But that is always where my mind goes when I don't hear from someone. So, I am hoping everything is OK.

    Josh is the guy assembling the pictures into a voting thread, and he's very busy with work. Hopefully he'll get the thread put up today or tomorrow.

    Good to know he's just really busy! And that nothing is wrong. After all waiting never hurt anyone.

    Besides slow and steady wins the race. Just ask the tortoise, he'll tell you.

    I absolutely have no expectation of my photo being in the calendar. I truly have hardly ever won anything in my entire 70 year old life except for a very few times, ONE time being when long ago I actually won an electric FAN in a BINGO game. I took the lovely new fan, so proud, to my office next day and set it up so it could cool me while I worked. That entire office building and all its contents burnt to the ground in a fire that same night. So much for THAT. LOL!!!!
    NOW see if you can leave me out of this contest.:cool::D

    Was your fan responsible for the fire?
    Did you not like the office? ;)
