Hi. I can only assume you are referring to my image File:Airboating 1, Everglades, FL, jjron 31.03.2012.jpg. Sorry, I'm a photographer, not an airboat salesman, or airboat expert in any manner, so can't help you. Good luck with your search and business though. --jjron (talk) 13:40, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Uncle, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Godfather and Godmother (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Yes, except in those cases they are not strictly disambig pages in the usual sense, so actually intended. Thanks. --jjron (talk) 13:31, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Permission for Canola Field image use[edit]

Hi John,

I hope you’re well. I’m a graphic design from a design studio called Pop & Pac. The reason for my calling is because I would like to seek permission to use your image of 'Canola field in New South Wales'. I would like to use this image on a wall inside the new Bendigo hospital, as I believe it represents the story that we’re creating for the people in Victoria, in particular the Loddon Mallee region. Could you let me know if this is possible at all and if required, please contact me to discuss any thoughts?

Many thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards, Mauris
