Yowza! Wouldn’t be prudent to specify precisely what I’m yowza-ing I think, but Yowza!

Pretty sure that you could apply 'yowza' to all of the submissions this month.  I know I could.  :eek:
Is there a problem with the photos? I don't see them anymore (and other threads are fine)?

The pictures are still visible for me. I am viewing in Safari on my iPhone.
Still there for me - Firefox on Windows. I do have an ongoing issue with a particular thread on my mobile in 2 browsers but again can see fine on desktop and others can see with various setups. Maybe it's something like that for you.
They are back, don't know what happened... now I have to choose, the hardest part, to much beautiful guitar this month...
