Ask Mongo
Dear Mongo: Thanks for some pleasant memories on your site yesterday. You had an old picture of a friend of mine, Mac, sitting on some rocks. Mac is just history now, but you brought him back for a minute. Your website is still the first thing I open every morning, thanks.

Mongo: Doug, here it is again. Thanks for all the photos you have submitted through the years, and as you have found out, they reappear! Don't be a stranger.
