    • Thanks Sue. The back looked curved to me so thought I would slip it into the gallery today. Have a great time at the wedding.

  5. You must’ve liked this challenge, Ruth. You really got into it. So many photos and each capable of nicely answering the challenge. Together they make an impressive gallery.
    Like your new avatar image. Very nice. :)

    • You are exactly right, John! I got into an old external hard drive with archived files and clearly didn’t stop myself! As soon as I read CURVES, I remembered sitting in the back seat on the Croatian car trip. As to the new avatar, I read that many people’s images online (FB etc) are not current. That was true for me. Guess new lines around the eyes and increased grays can’t compete with our high school photos. The new one is a month old. It was taken when one of my students won an award at the art show and I like how happy I look and felt at that moment.

    Thanks for sharing hon. *hugs*

  7. Delicious, Ruth. The Plitvice Falls drew me in and then I was off on a wonderful ride with you.
    I’m loving the variety in this theme. (my first thought was my extremely curvy daughter, but I resisted!) :)

    • Glad you fastened your seat belt and came with me, Jo. I am sure your daughter is grateful you restrained your urge to post her curves.
