Thank you Dm7 & Jim!!!!!
Your kind remarks have made my Friday!
Next weekend is the big event where 45,000 hams across the US and Canada amongst 4000+ clubs will participate in a two-day event where emergency power only stations set up out in the fields, mountain tops, church yards, state emergency operations centers, boats cars, etc, to get 'on the air' for a hectic 24-hour radio contest.
I coordinated our ARRL Field Day event for 6 years and I can say that the joys poured into this image were inspired by my experiences. People you would only know by voice tend to pop up, the food is always awesome, and you get to play with plenty of high-tech toys. What's great is that you often get mingle with public officials, get to be on the news, and in the paper.

Yup, the image will be shown two weeks from now, so I'm curious to see who notices.
Until a few years ago, I had a 12" Wacom tablet at work! I gave it away!
It had a swivel button on the stylus and I rest my pencils and pens on my ring finger instead of the middle finger so it was too awkward to use.
Do they still have buttons? ???
Ohhhhhhh, do I soooo regret losing it - I really envy pressure and angle input.
I've been drawing with a mouse for over two decades, so the dexterity is preeminent.
All in all - what a 'selling point' for Verve! Even mouse-bound artist can create amazing masterpieces.
