Always a pleasure, Bill. I just wish I had more time on the computer. I can only imagine the ones that I miss.&)

Thank you, Lena.
I am far from being a King, but yes, it is nice to receive such nice comments from the good folks here.
Thank you, too, Teresa.
It's always a pleasure to hear from you.

Lordy! It took me forever to get to this box where I can tell you how much I love this photograph. I have a barn at my log house in Alabama. This really reminded of it. Beautiful shot.
