Thank you Gigi. As you have noticed it has been awhile since I have been on VB. Just to much going on since my mother-in-law passed and we took some time for ourselves to just get away to see our sons. Been to California to see one now on way to Hawaii to see the other.

Another beauty of Africa, I am still hoping that one day human's lives will worth more than wildlife. Voted Discover Africa!

My wife told me to get a hobby when I retired and I have done just that. Learned some early on from my father in film days, you can read about that in my 'About'. I do enjoy it along with travel. Thanks. You do very well also I might add. Cheers.
