It has been a longtime daydream for me to own one of these. So, thank you for posting so many of these beauties.

Putting something in the right section can be a challenge. If this is a picture that the poster took himself, it would go in the Photo section. If it was just an amusing picture created by an unknown person, it would go in Chit-Chat. Since it a picture that the OP did not take himself, but it is all about photography - waiting patiently for the right moment - it's fine where it is.

As far as I'm concerned, arguing over sections is a waste of time.

This tired joke has been circulating on the internet for 20 years already.

Yeah, but I still like it.

There is always someone to criticize what a person has done. I say enjoy your hobbies. Don't worry about the small stuff.

Just another unsung hero of this country. I shudder to think where we would be without your parents.
Thanks for sharing.

That sounds like good posting in the Army Gene. I'm glad you are enjoying our tour. We've now been to Italy 3 times: 2 1/2 weeks in 1973, about 2 weeks on this cruise and post cruise and a month last year on a road trip. We want to go back soon; it's a special place.

I really considered re-enlistment at that posting. I would have spent another 3 years there if I had done so. Regrets, yes and no.

We stopped at the wall at the end of our walk around Lucca, then boarded the coach for our 2 hour ride back to the ship in Livorno

We were spending the night docked in Livorno, the only such night of the two-week cruise. As we were ready to start dinner, we happened to look outside (easy to do in the World Café, as it is surrounded by floor to ceiling glass). I had my compact camera with me, so I briefly stepped outside, photo 4. If I had only brought my DSLR on the trip, I doubt I would have brought it to dinner and thus would have only been able to take the photo with my phone.

My previous post can be found at, while the first post of this series (that includes a map of all of the places where we stopped) can be found at

Next up: Florence!

I am enjoying your Italy tour very much. I spent my last 6 months in the Army at Camp Darby which about 5 miles north of Livorno. Spent quite a bit of time in Livorno. A nice America Beach was about 2 miles from post. So, I had a great 6-month adventure there.

I forgot, this last Thursday I got hearing aids.
Kaiser tested me and the Audiologist said that besides my tinnitus I had loss in the high end and recommended I go to the VA to get them because with my VA disability they might be free instead of a copay at Kaiser. They were free from VA and a higher end model than Kaiser had for me on my teacher's retirement plan.
But on the followup in 4 weeks I need to get these things adjusted, the computer keys, rain on the roof, chewing, hair brushing my ears (the wife trimmed it yesterday etc. are now amplified too LOUD. My world now has too much sound. When I shaved I could hear every whisker getting cut.

I can relate to that/ I got my most recent hearing aids from the VA. These are the best I have over the years. This is my 4th et and the VA gave me a backup pair as well. My cost came to $50.00 for some reason but I don't care because it has worked out for me very well.

As for the other things people are talking about here, I can relate to all of those as well. I am 76 and it keeps getting tougher. But happy to be here.
