Hope that you enjoy this series

Both good but V2 is hilarious.
Great pictures!
I often wonder what people who dress up like this do when they get home at night?

The Italians have never quite figured out PC and Non PC, there's a whole pack of animals in each of these coats.

Mama Mia what a campaign image for the Animal Protection Agencies.


V2 gets my award for Tuesday Lillian.

Dougie sums up my feelings about V2, Lillian.
V1 is bright and gay, love the way they are posing.

I've heard about U3A but didn't know what it was, so looked it up: University of the Third Age. I think I qualify!

An amazingly colourful image in V1 & I should steer clear of the V2 ladies!
18 Feb 2014 5:43PM
Ha ha, V2 is certainly a very pleasing surprise LillianSmile but V1 is so positively charming. A great shot from a moving Boat, must've been before the first tiple of the DayWink
So looking forward to more of the same when you return from the wonderful Venice once again.
Good luck and take care Smile
