  1. Wonderful post and re-share Linda.. I love Davids posts and I missed this one, which I now must rectify. 🙂 ❤ xxx We saw many people taking selfies in Scotland.. Seems we are fast becoming self absorbed that we want to be the main focus of the picture.. Needless to say, Out of the hundred or so photo's I clicked only two had our faces on them.. LOL..

    Have a wonderful Week.. ❤

      Hi Sue,
      David is a sweet kind soul and I wanted to share some of his magic with my readers. Selfies are ubiquitious, but I have not taken one of myself,lol! I do like how we can readily take pictures on the phone, which I use often on my blog.

      Enjoy your birthday month, I hope your day was special Bleated Happy Birthday to you ! ❤
