Wild, I had the red 'x'.

I even right clicked and selected "Show Picture".

Still red x.

Did a right click, properties and copied the link and pasted it in the URL line.

It showed the picture and then the picture came up here, out of cache, I'm suspecting.

Maybe geocities doesn't allow remote linking?
