Good Day to you all at ePz.

Firstly thank you all for all your wonderful comments and votes following yesterday set depicting Kizmet having fun in the River Thames. A further mention going to Jocelia (Jocelia), Gypsyman (Eric) and Simon Fetch (Simon) for their User Awards for which I am very grateful.

I must apologise for not getting round to viewing and commenting on all your images yesterday, it's just that I collapsed in the garden after a quite nasty seizure. I'm still a bit groggy, so I may not be up to much to day, which I hope you will understand.

As for you, I sincerely hope that you have a great day.

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin
