Welcom Bambi!
« on: September 14, 2011, 05:24:16 AM »
We're excited to announce that as of today Bambi will be joining OPR as distribution coordinator.
It is a very busy and exciting time for OPR and I know all of you will welcome Bambi to her new role.

Bambi, I know you can be trusted to continue the fine OPR tradition of applying a "visible-only-in-high-res" layer of muck on our photos.

A warm Welcome Bambi,



I am sure your advice on photos from your gallery will be helpful.  (Meaning, don't be to hard on us) and don't believe those sale prices on the mucking machines.

Thank you in advance for all the effort and help you will provide.

Welcome Bambi

I just heard a recall has been issued for mucking machines.  If you use them too many times they tend to explode and cover you with muck -it hasnít yet been determined how many times is too many.  Just something to think about.

Welcome Bambi, I'm sure you will fit right in. Don't let Tori scare you about the recall as we are sending you the higher end mucker with all the whistles and bells that has service warranty on it for the life of the machine. We take our mucking seriously!  ;)

Thanks for taking on your new roll Bambi. As you move up in the organization, please don't forget your roots, and go easy with your newly acquired "higher end" muck machine!   :wnw:

Thank you all for the warm welcome. There's a general rule in the US that you don't put someone named "Bambi" in charge of . . . anything. I just saw that they not only gave me a Galleryóbut they put pictures in it! A whole bunch of pictures. (I might add that none of them looks nearly mucked up enough, so I have my work cut out for me.)

But after I've run them through my brand new, durable and improved mucker-upper machine, I will have to distribute them to you. Please bear with me on that part. The system is just complex enough to send chills up my spine, but not beyond grasp. I am trainable. My performance might be a little erratic at first, so I hope experienced members will let me know right away if something isn't right. Newbies, please understand the rest of the organization is run very efficiently.

I want to do my best for all of you (and the Sommers family). With your help, I'll be up to speed soon.

Bambi

Ha, ha, Pat. I was born with freckles, so the mucker upper machine already exploded on me.

Welcome to the fun world of the distributor Bambi. I'm sure that top end mucker upper will do the job nicely.
Being so far away down under I had to make my own, shipping was too costly. So mine have kangaroo paw prints and bull dust on them.  ;D
Bull dust is real, it's what we call the fine red dust out in the deserts. It's like talcum powder, sticks to everything.

The new model has a filter to make sure all the spots are big enough to elude Dust and Scratches. Guarantees tedious, time-consuming work. It also puts spots on the edges of clothes and skintones, so all your Healing tools are useless. BoooooooooAhhhhhhhhhhhHaaaaaaHaaaaa!
