"What can I say?" Well I shall start off by thanking you all for your most kind and caring messages following yesterdays upload. As the sun came over the brow of the hill this morning I was awoken by a beautiful light. As I lay still in comfortable and safe surroundings I thought to myself today is the beginning of a whole new chapter in what has been a rather indifferent read. I shall not dwell on the last few pages , but I will look forward and welcome future passages.

Thank you Eric for you most welcomed User Award

Today's Silly Sunday Image was captured a short time ago whilst looking through my study window. It instantly made me smile, so hopefully that joy can be passed on.

The weather is somewhat inclement so a trip to the local Shopping Mall maybe on the guards.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead, and thank you all once again. You really are the best.

Regards Nathan Grin

Took all of 3 minutes for my dreadfully slow connection to allow me to view this one, but worth the wait! I so love these little birds and the one in this image is just so cute! Very pleased to learn you are feeling a lot happier today. Know a little of that feeling as in my case the snow is vanishing rapidly!

Love the way you have captured the wren looking up at the statue which in itself show great tones and textures - onward and upward Nathan you are an inspiration to all that view your uploads and read your intro I need to take a leaf out of your book.

I'm really fed up my computer is running so slow i can hardly turn a page it takes ages to look at anything on site, i think maybe it's my ageing computer or the number of people on the Internet so i'm just going to click the rest of them today because i have had enough.
