THE REST OF THE PICTURE


I hope you like the new sunset header.  I thought I’d show you the rest of the image.  This is from the walkway in front of our apartment.  We chose the west side of the complex years ago, so that we could watch the sunsets and thunderstorms.  We haven’t been disappointed.  (The strange object on the right is a hurricane-proof water tower.)

More good news.  A shame people aren’t listening.  Hey, don’t worry.  The scientists (that we aren’t listening to) will fix it.
