  1. I don't see many of those around my area, but absolutely adore them when I do.

  2. Does time really take it's toll on our happiness?
    Where has the joy and laughter of the earlier photos gone to ?
    I think I shall destory any glum looking recent photos of myself, so that future generations can't look back and say that I obviously lost my humour with age.
    Especially when I think I'm just becoming really comfortable with it.....
