Thank you for viewing the photo and taking the time to comment.
As you see this is a fairly old post.

I have not been doing much here at BP any more, and now I see I missed many great comments from people like you.
It's great see this photo and others are still being viewed every now and then.

Many thanks to you all !!! #7838994
