...another 'rung' on the Aminus3 'ladder'.
Per their records this is my 2,000th post, one photo at a time, since my first in September 2007.
Thanks to each of you who follow my blog, view and comment, and others who only view photos.
This Willow Tree angel is here to welcome everyone.

Thank you, Aminus3 founders, for the wonderful opportunities you offer each of us at this site!

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.
