Excellent pictures.
It's always sunny up where you are, isn't it.

I agree with Brian, love all the outfits.;)
Glad it rained only a little bit, being a Scandinavian I can relate to that sentiment.;) Hope all is well dear Tony.;))

What is that bloody dog doing in the background in the pic with the woman pointing her camera straight at your camera. It looks obscene. And not in a nice way
