Award Shortlist   


By ChiliMan
Hey, all Smile

Goodness...I have been away for AGES it feels. Relatives came to stay from the 11th till the 18th and the days were so full. And then last week just got away from me, the slippery little eel. Bah.

ANYWAY, what better way to return than with yet another bathroom shot, eh?? (think I heard a chorus of groans...could be wrong...hmmm...)

And what a nice surprise to come back to - HCs are put up there with ECs! Ok fine...PAs now. ECs sounded cooler, though. PAs sound like you're getting an award for being an outstanding personal assistant. And with that, I'm probably never gonna get one now...doh!


Alrighty...enough stuff and nonsense. On with the pics.

I hope you've all been good.

Nah...kidding. We wouldn't want that, would we?

A Smile

Getting into hot water with your comments? This looks red hot, plus wonderful dark metalic sheen and very well controlled exposure.
My Better Half is pleased as punch with the new system as he has an HC and I haven't. So Tongue

Nice having you back. Never predictable what you'll say next and I for one got lost somewhere amongst all those initials! I think not least I enjoy the witty remarks provided by members of your fan club as well as your own inimitable write-ups! Like the tones in your image and the shadow plus waterdrops. I confess it would never have occurred to me to capture this! Looking forward to the plug-hole as suggested.
