If I don’t take the time to leave comments on your photos in the next while, it’s because I just not that I’m not looking at the photos. With my Mom having been sick, I just don’t have as much time to comment at I have had in the past. I still look and appreciate all the wonderful photos by everyone….

      Thanks. She is much better, today. Although, it takes her longer and longer to bounce back and she never quite gets back to where she was before she was sick.

      We went for a drive, today, which she very much enjoyed.

    The lake in Quebec is just lovely. I like the clouds and ripples too. Best to you and your mother.

    Your Swiss memorial reminds of the other crash at Scotland’s Lockabee an dhow this week, the bomber is freed on compassionate grounds. Do you think he should be freed and to HEROS’ welcome. I feel sorry for his victims.

      I don’t think he should have been freed.

      I understand there is some question of his guilt and some victim’s families are also questioning his guilt. If anything, there should be a full inquiry before they just let him go…

      We have had our own controversy over the Air India bombing where our own security police, CSIS, so bungled the investigation that they may actually have allowed (through their incredible bungling) the bombing to take place in the first place, allowed guilty parties to go uninvestigated, and innocent people be prosecuted… They destroyed vital information before they bothered to properly examine it, ignored legal wiretap information, illegally wiretapped other (innocent) individuals, “lost” suspects while tailing them….. The Keystone Kops look like competent law-enforcement compared to CSIS. These are also the folks responsible for the labelling of innocent Canadian citizens as “terrorists” (which they have since admitted they were not) so they could be deported by the US to Syria and other nations to be tortured and even discussed the hope that they would be quietly killed so the error wouldn’t be discovered…

    Your ripples are beautiful and I hope your Mom gets better soon. The one with no ripples is amazing. Maybe when you have time you can drop by and see my ripples, no need to comment.

    Those are all wonderful but I especially like the first one. It’s truly “picture-perfect.”

    Hope your mother improves.
