    You are a very special person to me and I really like almost all of your photography. This is a very nice photograph as well and well-chosen for this January theme day.

    Thanks for all of your visits to my blog in 2007 and I hope and pray you have excellent health and are very happy all the days of your life but especially in this new year 2008.

    Happy New Year from Patty and me.

  51. Thanks all of you who stopped to visit and comment today. I tried to visit all those who came to my blog plus many others. I know I missed more which disappointed me, but I just couldn't visit all 118. It has been loads of fun. For those of you who asked, we're leaving for Maz on Saturday, January 5. It'll take a few days to get settled and to make sure that we can get access to internet, but I fully intend to post from there.

  52. I remember this one, it reminds me of a hot day in our summer heat. Very nice selection.

    Happy new years to you and yours in 2008!

    Sorry I wasn't able to visit your blog sooner. I was in transit the whole of yesterday. I am now back in Norwich after the most fantabulous time at home in Manila. Do swing by my other sites to leave your footprints behind. Read: lovely comments. :)

    Happy New Year to you and everyone you hold dear!

    I look forward to visiting your blog more often this 2008. And you're welcome to mine, too! For some reason, my link was not included for participating blogs for the 1st of January 2008.
