Dunno if you're okay with random people coming in to 'whoa' out others, but I have a few:

Tee hee I got an Poppy based pic from 2009 so thought I'd share it for fun [link]
And poppies are the "symbol" of remembrance day. Here in UK a lot of people wear/wore them this week so can't see what the fuss is about.

:giggle: reading the commentary made me giggle ^^ Thanks for cheering me up - also this was a really interesting journal Moonbeam, gave me [and I'm sure many others] something to read and click links on whilst working :heart:
Shoofly-Stock Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I thought you were promoting and honoring Veteran's Day. I spent hours digging through photos of my Dad from WWII to scan and upload to your journal. All I see here is poppies :confused:
Moonbeam13 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
To be fair I said the theme was Poppies but I have added in the photos you scanned.

Thank you,
Shoofly-Stock Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you but to be fair - 2 days after you announced this journal I uploaded the first photo of my Dad since you said it was to honor the veterans. You faved the photo so I thought you wanted photos or art depicting the men and women who kept this country free and safe, not photos and art of some flowers. You should have just said "I want photos or drawings of Poppies, not the men and women who fought and died to keep this country safe known as the land of the free and home of the brave." No reply needed.

I appreciate you're upset with me and I apologize for that.

have a nice day
prosaix Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2011
The header looks nasty now it's a deviation... Maybe you should change it's background colour? :XD:

Yellow poppies! :la:
