I took this photo of our mountains some 10 km out of town.
Thanx so much for all the votes and comments on Johnny Walker yesterday - especially the good wishes for my tax man experience which was a tax woman in the end - and a very efficient one at that Smile A special thank you to Pam [ mashwood10] for her UA - a pleasant and most welcome surprise Smile
Have a fabulous Friday !!

An excellent shot of a wonderful view Herman. I live on the Cheshire Plain, one of the flatest areas of England but I long to live near the mountains. Maybe when I retire......
