      Beautiful, but she looks Welsh to me. Great to be back, wasting time of flickr when I have a mass of work to do, and great to see Zardoz posting pics again. He's been away in Afghanistan, looking after Prince Harry, you know.

      Monty -
      You're not supposed to tell people about that, nutter,,,,,it's a secret!"
      But it's true that the little ginger twat would be dead without me.
      I personally fought off an entire battalion of heroin crazed Taliban, with nothing more than a tripod and an old Lubitel, just to save his little "royal" ass.
      It was like Rorkes Drift.....Only better and I woz more braver (than Michael Caine even).
      I was even personally thanked by his dad ~ Lt. James Hewitt.

      gritty-real, as should be --

      this is how life transforms

      I agree that the BW is more effective.
