Genuinely mesmerised with how your sky looks - beautiful.

It's so strange to grasp the vastness of the U.S when you live on a little island.
I googled to work out how far you and Myers are from each other - stunned it was over 3,000 miles. Same distance for me to drive from home to Greece.

My little mind boggles.

Yes, and a good thing it's 3000 miles or I'd probably have my kids over there toilet papering all those trees in his yard😀

The sky is really beautiful here. We are now in what they call our 'monsoon' season. The sky changes by the hour.

Parents or Uncle Sugar.

Is Photobucket still in it's "pay" mode? They really shrank the size of their free accounts. I guess I don't blame them.

I just load things onto my FarceBook account

^^^ the angel Moroni blowing away the storm.

He always faces east I'm told. Except in Las Vegas where east would point toward the strip.😆

Naw -- it's free, but there are a lot more annoying ads and pop-ups. Space isn't an issue for me -- I rarely use it.

Yeah, the quality of your photos is excellent - mine never look like that.

Speaking of papering...

I took this a few years ago. My wife went to school at Auburn University. Whenever they win a football game, people toilet paper two oak trees in downtown Auburn.

If the trees look dead, that's because they are.

An Alabama fan poisoned them with several gallons of commercial grade herbicide. Roll Tide!

They've since been replaced with a couple of fairly large transplanted trees.

It's an iPhone 7. And those were snapped through the windshield of my truck.😀

These are cotton fields in the boondocks near where my spousal unit is from. It's pretty early in the growing season -- you can barely see the little white "bolls."

It's because God finds you Brits so damn clever and interesting that a glorious sky would look like favoritism.
