Good morning....
Thanks for your votes and comments and to Lynne (Drighlynne) for her UA, much appreciated....
A Lioness for today, resting in some shade, but still on the lookout for a tasty impala....I thought the V2 Lioness image was appropriate after my long stint at the dentist yesterday. I also had my eyes closed Grin I did not think it was possible to keep ones mouth open for so many hours. My teeth do look better than this lioness's however. I am now the proud owner of a new smile . Thank you for all the well wishes yesterday and those who sent pm's.
Have a nice day....
