I just replied thusly:
Thank you for the email, I must apologize for my bad Internet manners. I love your picture so much! I meant no offense, and to be totally honest, I was quite intoxicated when I wrote the original post, and was unable to find you again after becoming sober to provide proper credit.
I believe I did a yahoo image search for ‘crossroads’ originally, but I could not duplicate the results that lead me to your awesome photograph the first time. I got no less than 2 different emails requesting information about your photograph, I will reply to them and CC you once I get your permission to continue to use this image on my humble blog.
How did you find me? I’m just curious is all. Please review the changes to the post:
(I’ve updated and bumped to the top)
I pledge to immediately and without any hard feelings remove your photograph, or edit it to your satisfaction. Please forgive me for your trouble.
Things are unsettled in the Pupster world. I’m up against some really heavy meat world stuff, my dear pretend internet friends. I have to make a grown-up type decision and I feel like a fawn in headlights.
How do you make the tough decisions? Honest to God, I’ve probably only made two or three of them in my whole life, I usually wait for the circumstances to force my hand, or the murky water to settle and clear. Wait and see is a sure way for one of my options to go away in this instance. I might just flip a coin.
