Good bit of twilight here Keith.
And I am awaiting the last part of the Twilight film to come out.
I sent the silly girl an e-mail to tell her it would never work out marrying a vampire,
and she could see all the twilights she wants when we come out of the Dockers Club,
but she must be too busy to send me a reply.
I still await with bated breath !!
Mick.

It's given the image a very 'painting-like' appearance. Very serene and attractive, Keith.
