Shame you're not allowed to try out the sailors as well Susanne. ;) Very nice pic and it looks like a very interesting place to visit. I reckon I could have spent quite a few hours there, myself, wandering around taking pics. :D

Super yet again Chilli. :D

Sister J, had to take that picture since it's close to my name. Hubby made the expected remarks when he saw it. :roll: :lol:

Chilli, that horse is beautiful. Ava was looking over my shoulder and loved it! I could not imagine living on that sub either. Just touring it with a few people made me feel claustrophobic.

Penfold, sadly, I am definitely not allowed to try out sailors. ;)

Ghost I love your pictures! :D I agree with Tony, the one with Charlaine Harris looks great in B&W. You are so lucky to have met her. I don't think she's ever come anywhere near here on her signing tours.

Ghost, are you in that picture? :)

I'm fairly sure that Sharlene has met Charlaine. When she had the bookstore, she'd often take visiting writers for a drive in the desert - Saguaro National Park. :D

it was dumb luck that I was moching on the waterstones website at the time
what I should have put out an offer for one other person to post one of their books to me so I could've had it signed for them providing (s)he covered the postal cost
