  9. Wow, however did you find that second photo? Blew me away for a minute.
    Love your haiku.
    Oh, I see you found him in Edinburgh, of all places. Whodathunkit? So you look at the prompt and think, oh yes, just like that guy in Edinburgh by the BnB.

I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page.
