WOW ...suddenly I can leave messages after all ! I still can't draw again even though I have Java enabled but I have hope :)
Given the timing I'm not sure you will ever see this message Christopher (But I'm glad I saw yours)...I remember ...much love to you too.
I feel sad that the CAPTCHA never works for me...I can't leave any comments and haven't been able to for years. I'm not the only person affected this way which is why I suspect many people don't use this site any more
I am looking for people who drew here in 2000 to 2003
Christopher, I really hated to see your drawings disappear from the site. You had some of the best work on here and I always admired your work even though I could not understand your attitude at times. It is good to hear from you and I am glad to hear you are doing better now. Blessings, peace and love to you!
I had a nostalgic moment and decided to take a look back on this site again tonight. It looks like the drawings have slowed to a trickle. Anyway, some of you may remember me. I was young and angry and full of ego and acted like quite the prick on here. I pissed and moaned until my drawings were deleted. For those of you who I offended with my belligerent mouth I would like to offer my apologies. I am a different man today... still crazy, but minus the substance abuse. My memories of coming here are fond and gimme a smile. Love to all who remember.
It sure was a lot of fun while it lasted! Hi all! :)
* Hi to all that are here either peeking in or drawing. I, too, am unable to draw and miss the fun of drawing here almost daily... the friendships found, the friendships lost... all a part of YouDraw memories. To those that can, please keep drawing and hopefully one day we all will... once again.* ;-)
Hi to all my friends on YOUDRAW!! I am unable to draw on the site now but maybe when I get a new laptop, I'll be back. I sure miss the fun and the wonderful art and ideas in those tiny spaces! Name That Tune was addictive! I can't draw but I can look so keep drawing. Love from bren.
