Thanks. But as for "keepin em coming," I don't know. It takes a ridiculously long time to post photos on this site (as well as to navigate the site in general), and just now I submitted three photos: Two disappeared completely in cyberspace, while a third, of the lake tanker *Mercury,* is listed in my account but is nowhere to be found on the site.

After, this debacle, I'm beginning to question if it's worth it: I just may not have the time nor patience, I'm afraid.
