Expressing oceans of appreciation for mnhtnbb

When we falter and have problems, when things go awry and nobody picks up the slack yet she does, it makes me very grateful for her ability and attitude and willingness to jump in, take over, and show all of us again and again how it is done to run a contest.

Thank you so much mnhtnbb,
I genuinely don't know what we would do without your help, so many times. I wish it were not needed so many times.

While I wait for the hostess to decide if we can do two entries for the winter contest

help me decide which one to enter as my second one should it happen. It's been a long long time since we had an internal pre-entry poll.
They were fun, and both of these photos are supposed to make you laugh.

The backlit early daffodils make me happy every year.

I want to say a hearty Hyuck Hyuck OMG about that. But then, I don't know the man, am glad for it, and will keep it that way. Though I can't speak for the voters in the 9th district, I can send thoughts and prayers and maybe we'll get one more house seat out of the shameful election fraud in the midterms.

The story of the photo that won second place. Where it is, and more pictures

More about where I took my second photo of the February contest, one of them even has me in it.

The Walhalla is a hall of fame that honors laudable and distinguished people in German history – "politicians, sovereigns, scientists and artists of the German tongue". The hall is a neo-classical building above the Danube River, east of Regensburg in Bavaria.

We had to climb up on (comfortable) steps to get to the huge building. It was a warm Spring day, and many people, mostly young, were sunning themselves, picnicking and overlooking the Danube.

One arrives at the back end, somewhere in the middle is the entrance, and at the front there are interminable steps without any guard rails leading down to the river.

Look at them all, maybe just because the last picture shows my backside. I did not take it, just posed for it.

Arriving at the top, the rear of the building after coming up steps in a forested area











Lots of happy gatherings in between the huge columns and landings. Note the dangling feet to show you the heights







We got there at closing time, so against great opposition I sneaked in and took these 2 quick shots






Around now to the front and the steps












And finally me and my backside, as promised






Edited to add a link to a post I made about horses in Vienna, it's in the photo forum and somehow not viewed that much. Thanks for voting for my horse photo also

More of the Horses. Scroll through and enjoy.

Thanks, friends, for your votes, is what the horses are saying to you.
There are so many beautiful horse carriages in the heart of Vienna that it was impossible not to come home with lots of photos.

First off are the guys you voted for one more time, and then many others...



























and finally at the stable of the famous Lipizzan Stallions











Hope blooms. Across the street from my house.



Other than making a HUGE issue about abolishing the electoral college ---Naomi Klein speaks---

here are important considerations, as we all know
