David: pretty brave of you to travel in those years when it seemed like there was a hijacking every couple of weeks. And good thing you weren't at Lod the following month! It's neat to see old pix of locations to see how much has changed (or has not, in some cases lol) in a just a few decades. The (now Ben-Gurion) airport is quite different these days.
Ren: That's a very colourful poster. Can you read/write any Chinese dialects yourself?
Howie: Those oystercatchers are so adorable, I want to name them Huey Louie and Dewey lol
SpanishLiz: Absolutely love the footprints photo. That would make a very cool desktop background.
Ren-again: I see you've been taking a few closeup pictures lately - you should do it more often as those plant photos are gorgeous
Zorbs: Cassowaries are so odd. Especially their creepy staring eyes lol. Speaking of "reptilian" creatures, I think that shedder you have there is a lizard not a snake, as it appears to have a front right leg. Cool pic whatever it is! And that photo of the coast is awe inspiring. I personally couldn't have gotten that close to the edge to take it!
Vanya: welcome back, haven't "seen" you here for awhile. Seems they're getting snow everywhere except in Sochi lol.
Howie-again: "Oddly enough", that washed up tree looks like a bird - heron like beak, long legs, wings and all. How appropriate, coming from you : ) Of course, I have a vivid imagination so other people's mileage may vary ~
Okay, I guess I should post something. I can't get any enthusiasm up whatsoever to go out and take snow photos (pretty or not lol), so am attaching a pic of some succulents that hibernate (in several pots) in my house until winter goes away.
