Hi my friends,
I can see it, you're back and visiting - thank you so much for your comments!

Please come back every day and I'll try to post something smart, something funny, a nice detail hidden away somewhere in a pretty yard, sometimes some abstracts or just a simple straight out shot. It depends how my mood is and today I'm in a good mood, happy and smiling - like almost every day because life is good! :)
(I had other times too in my life...well, who has it not, right?)

Have a wonderful day - many sunshine to you!

If i not mistaken, I have seen the movie played by Anthony Quin as the fisherman. Showing his struggle to bring back the tough guy home. Took weeks night & day before he can catch the fish.

Very nice photo we have here.

Loved that he was in a wooden rowboat, rowing next to all of those expensive new sailboats.
Tenacity, that's the title of it!
