Actually we get quite a few cat pictures. Some, like the one above won the monthly photo contest in October 2017. Indian Joe has some excellent photos, and so do others, but I think one win per picture should be enough. It must still be winter as we have several very nice entries to choose from this time.

Yikes, you’re right Swede...IS’s pic has won a previous contest so is ineligible to win again. :?

Allrighty then, it looks like Mr. Swede has won the FEB 2021 Photo of the Month contest. Thanks to all who entered such great photos, and, thanks to all who took a few minutes to vote. I'll get a sponsor provided goodie packaged up and sent down I5 to Swede within a few days.

RJ: Please keep the "goodie" and use it reach out for more people to join the forum. I would like to see our forum growing and gaining new members.
Besides I feel bad about stepping in I.S.'s toes. I think he forgot he had already won with that old photo. Others reuse their photos, but his was the only one I remember winning before.

Recount? I liked the way Moe in the Three Stooges counted to two. He had it down pat. Can I count to two for you?

Well considering I got 0 votes (incomprehensible) knowing how to count to 2 would do me little good. Congratulations Swede, it appears your slush fund payments to these jokers has finally paid off.

I expect Big Red will be sitting in my driveway soon with a full tank of gas and the keys under the front seat on the driver's side. 7mm do you want a PM so you can come down and drive it back to RJ when my time is up? It should be a lot of fun.

I admit to taking the role of moderator here serious. When I saw something that was clearly a foul, I openly pointed it out. Otherwise, lets get rid of the rules. I think the rules are liberal and fair. There are many pictures that have little tie to the month's theme, and quite a few have been reused. I will let RJ decide if and when the connection to the theme is too loose and things like that.
I have no desire to rain on anyone's parade, except maybe for yours's, Lefty's or 7up's. You characters need a little soaking every day or two, just to keep you in line. :D
As for winning, I too feel it is unfortunate. I would rather have won on a write-in :D or maybe a different month or maybe not at all. The way it turned out, taints things in my mind too.
