J.R. Is No Dean Butler

I swept the dust bunnies out from the Vortex corners and did something I had been meaning to do for awhile now: remove photographs that weren't mine or protected under the fair use rule.  Mercifully, I hadn't relied too heavily on them for the past six years. I did, however, make the conscious decision to keep Dean Butler's photograph up. I'm thinking at this stage in his career, he'd shout, "Holy Half-pint!" that someone remembered him. The benefit to housekeeping is two-fold: it's the right thing to do and gives me stats that are content-based instead of image-based. My apologies in advance, but this means you will not only see more of my corn-pone, home-grown photography, but I won't be driving to Southfork Ranch to stamp an original image on my next post regarding the reincarnation of the DALLAS television show. I haven't been to Southfork since I was eight, and I wouldn't know where to begin looking for that picture.

For now, though, I'm celebrating my new ghostwriting project. Sure, that means things will slow a bit at The Vortex, but we've been there/done that before. Consider it time travel with less vomiting. And oh, the places I'll go.

Happy Monday, everyone!

I think "Dallas" should have remained dead. Good luck you old time traveler you :)

Congrats on your latest project! Happy writing! I'm happy to read everything is good in your neck of the woods. Hugs!

And I really hope Dean Butler stumbles upon your photo/mention. :)

That sounds like a good call. There have been some scary stories lately about authors who've gotten in trouble for including others' images on their blogs.

@Charles...I wish. Think of the awesomeness of *that* collaborative team :)

@Dixie...Do ya think? I don't know. I confess to being a tad hooked.'ll be the first to know ;) true. It's just not worth the risk, is it? Thanks so much for the visit :)
