Thanks so much for all your wonderful comments on "Thoughts", you really are very kind.
I was digging through some old shots yesterday and I found this little fellow digging his way back! I wondered what sort of background I could give him, then I found an image of the US flag and it seemed to work - extra textures added too (of course!).
Have a great day and congratulations to all the winners in the Christmas prize draw (nothing for me but my husband won a prize!)
