Im sorry for the picture being so small.  I don't know how to make it bigger.  The bigger I did the more it kept saying the file is too large!


You could use Photobucket too, which is an free image hosting site for storing and sharing photos and videos on internet forums, like ours.  Offers up to 2 GB of free storage for your photos.  It automatically configures your photos so no worry there.

Here are online instructions on how to post using Photobucket:

My family used to go to the Upside Down House when it was at Nellie's place on the west side of the 395 on the north edge of Mono.  She used to give us kids a piece of hard candy after we went inside the House.  Very nice lady.  And we camped up at Lundy when she owned the place there but I was only about 4 or 5 then.  We grew up camping there for many, many years and knew and played with the next owner's children every summer.  I was so thrilled when I read that the House was being restored and moved to the Museum.  Just got back from Mono Village 2 days ago and on the way home hubby & I stopped there to take pics & show our grandchildren (5 & 8) and they LOVED IT!!!
