    I hope the link works. It's a picture of Debbie Reynolds my sister took when we saw Debbie in concert at the Canadian National Exhibition last summer. The woman defines "entertainer"!

  2. The link did not work for me. I would love to see the picture of your sister with Debbie Reynolds.

  3. I just got it to work on this end by highlighting the link and giving the mouse a right click to get to "Open link". It really is a swell picture!
