All seems well up in your country. You must not have to drive too far to reach such places I imagine.

What a view. And I bet the night sounds lull you to sleep. Such a contrast from here. No smell or sound of water. I have only the yipping of coyotes

I stopped along a roadside a couple of Sat.s ago and quickly took this shot with my phone. The photo doesn't quite capture the whole scene and abundance of flowers, but does reflect a typical east Texas view this time of year.
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

O love the Lord, all ye His saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful. Psalm 31:23

Nice spontaneous landscape. I can see why E. Texas is sometimes described as "piney."

Photobucket changed its terms of service awhile back, Tatanka.
They want you to pay a fortune to link to your photos stored there from sites like this forum.

Most of us who used to use Photobucket for that purpose chose not to pay and moved on to other photo hosting services. All of the previous links to photos stored on Photobucket now bring up that message.

You can't see the photos unless the person who has them stored there has paid for the upgrade.

Ahh. Makes sense and thank you. I've been curious about this for weeks, but passed it by, assuming it was a secret language code. Ha Ha.
I will stop trying to pry it open to look inside. The computer kept rejecting my screw-driver method of discovery.
