Well. I am Human afterall! Last theme closed and I apologise for mucking you all around.

Here is our new theme *HOLIDAY/VACATION SNAPS* and it will be up for a week and a half and you can post twice .. oh heck, make it three time but it MUST be on different days.

If it be somewhere exotic or closer to home dig out the holiday snaps and show us all.

I had a toy "thing" too. Dunno, maybe it should be theme of the "month" instead of theme of the week?. Gives folks more time to respond/or take pix to fit. Due to where I live (boring unless you like snow)almost ALL of my pictures are holiday themed, so..........? what do you guys/gals feel?

Definitely NOT a theme of the month. We had something similar over Christmas time, and it was incredibly boring after the second week. I was thinking that leaving this new theme up for a week and a half was a bit much, even with allowing extra photos. The fun of the themes is in looking forward to a new one each week, and trying to come up with something to fit it.

For years I spent much of my holidays trekking in remote areas. The starting point for most Nepal Himalaya treks was of course Kathmandu, and this is a typical scene in the Pashupatinath temple complex.

"Bodant Gardens in Wales...."

Reminds me of a scene from "Keeping Up Appearances" when Hyacinth was ducking around the building after "borrowing" a Rolls Royce from the dealership.
