#300 - For Betty

By brownsilent
My upload #300!

Just imagine. Thank you all for keeping an eye on every single one.
Special thanks to Neil (cantona43) and John (lifesnapper) who were my first constant visitors. But soon there appeared other names I would miss thoroughly at the moment. I can't name them all, you know for sure who is meant.
Thank you for your friendships, even if we haven't met yet.
And last but not least, thank you Danny and Dougie for being special.

You certainly wonder who Betty is.
Betty is my very special friend from Falkirk - it is her birthday today. Everything went wrong concerning her special day. She did not get my present, nor my birthday card yet due to weird circumstances.
Therefore I dedicate this image to her, all the more as she was standing by my side when it was taken. With the sincerest apologies,


I wish you all a great start into the week,

A beautiful image, a lovely birthday surprise for Betty, even though she hasn't received your card and present yet. And I echo Jude's sentiments, if you find yourself in Crete in the future there is always a welcome here. Carol
