Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

I do commend you on seeing these little moments of beauty that are all around us - but which most of us miss.

@Ronnie 2¢: Ah!! Ronnie.. If only you knew what goes behind " these little moments "... with a wife crouching in funny places, hiding behind curtains, squatting for eons on the grass, shouting and imitating squirrels, peacocks and crows on the roads, walking on the terrace with a bucket inverted on her head to catch the crow's nest in her lens....the husband might any time issue Divorce papers, stating " eccentric wife with behaviour bordering on insanity .." etc. etc.... Ah!! that's life Ronnie:)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))Well, he will not issue those papers as I am sure he knows he won't get a better wife:))))))))))))))))))))))
