"Over The River and Through The Woods .....

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 25 November 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio. Grandmother's House we Go"...this is not exactly the road to OUR house (although I wish it were)...but we are enjoying family togetherness for the next few days. So, to all or friends in the USA, we wish you a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving! And to all of our friends everwhere else in the AM3 world, we wish you a peaceful and happy weekend!
