Todays blog is mostly about pictures of Sunsets that we have taken in the last couple of weeks.The one below is not really a sunset but a picture Sue took from the road, it was just as the rain clouds started rolling in, so half is in sunshine the other half in shade, I think it gives a nice effect.
The shot below was taken overlooking Ilfracombe just as the dark rain clouds thicken and night begins.
The picture below i like because of all the different colours in the sky as night falls.
The picture below is my favourite and is earmarked for a future screensaver.
The next two shots caused me a bit of a quandry as to which ones to use, so here are both. They are very similar but my favourite one is the second, so comments please which one do you prefer?, this one?.
Or maybe this one?.
Please comment.

Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.

One day they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, 'Now don't get mad at me....I know we've been friends for a long time.....but I just can't think of your name! I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is.' Her friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her. Finally she said, 'How soon do you need to know?'
