Oh Max!! If you load even a single image to your gallery, you should expect a finalist! You manage to get two every month in the people category, that is a truly outstanding achievement my friend :)))

I will be seeing Luschka again in July, then I will do some more pics of her :) #7565235

LOL King Max! It is just luck my friend :))) #7567790

Max Aureli May 27, 2009

Listen Queen Betsy... statistically luck happen only one time in tons of times. To my POV (right place to use the abbreviation "point of view" LOL) your luck is called something else: master!!! :-))) #7568938
