    • LOL….glad this isn’t Skype!
      Been sick for a week and aged five years at least.
      Thanks though.
      Enjoyed your photos and information about Death Valley. I’ve never been there. Was this a recent trip?
      My grandson, his 6 year old daughter and his new fiancee spent a week in Paris and a week or so in London. They got engaged
      on New Years in Paris. I have been loving all their photos. Great-Granddaughter is quite a diva and totally in love with Paris. He surprised her by flying into London and after a few days taking the Chunnell to her heart’s desire….Paris.
