Thank you ATL; In fact I guess it's not in the big picture. I'm sure they have their hands full answering and contributing to the good stuff here! Appreciate the come back (wow, come back, that's from the old Citizen's Band days. lol)
For some reason, that has always been a problem on our Forum and the site owner repeatedly tried to resolve it. My GIF refused to load for two years until I reduced its bit-count to something ridiculous - and it finally loaded! In spite of its small data-size, the image is pretty good so all I can suggest is to reduce your images in steps until the Forum software accepts them. Good luck!
