Sorry, I'm a little fuddled & didn't look at the 'Picture of the Day' grouping.

It certainly is a photo worthy to be shown.

I can't believe that, but maybe I can blame the little bit of Scotch whisky I had prior to dinner tonight. Actually, it's more to do with 'foot in mouth' disease I suffer from.

It's a great pic.

There didn't seem to be too much action in the POTD category, so I thought I'd revive it.

There hasn't been much activity in this category & thanks for doing something about that & sorry for jumping the wrong way.
