Happy Holiday[edit] (talk) 14:53, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, Mod. I just knew it would be a Dylan video. Hope you're having a wonderful holiday. JNW (talk) 14:57, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

The Skater[edit]

I hope you're enjoying retirement. I just dropped by to point out that The Skater is today's Featured Picture. This wouldn't've been possible if you hadn't written the great article. It should get lots of hits today. MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 18:45, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Thank you so much for the note, Mandarax! It was a written in response to a request from Outrigger. Cheers, JNW (talk) 19:32, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

A rhetorical question for erstwhile colleagues in the fine arts[edit]

Why would I, or anyone else, want to 'come back' to an editor who corresponds in this fashion [1]? User:Modernist, User:Johnbod, et al, feel free to have a look at the talk and the article. Much ado about nothing, I know, but I've been accused of hoaxing. I'm off to the liquor cabinet, where there's still a copious amount of Maker's Mark. JNW (talk) 03:21, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

All retracted. Seems to be Dutch, & a mixture of Calvinist bluntness and a command of English tone that isn't quite as perfect as believed can produce odd results (except for Drmies of course). Hope you're well, all the best, Johnbod (talk) 03:47, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
