colourful clanger

By CarolG  
First of all, very many thanks to all the very kind people who awarded their user award to my end of month montages, most appreciated.
This is a quick look-in just to say that not much has changed here, I am at present getting over a bout of shingles, straight after being diagnosed with kidney stones in both kidneys. A real blow, but thatís life.
I still have no enthusiasm for using the pc or picking up the camera yet, but I did take this tiny little fella after rescuing him from the dogís water trough.

Lovely to see a clanger again, and super to hear from you albeit with bad news. Kidney stones are horrendously painful, I know, so I sympathise hugely. Why is it everything seems to come at once. Sad
Wishing you better soon.
