Artsparker - I've never heard that word either! Is it pronounced "super - silly - ous"? Because that would be AWESOME!

You have some really lovely photos - you should do more. Particularly when you get some snow, we rarely see snow in good old Washington State....thanks for visiting!

Really? Loved that I learned not one, but two {Super-silly-us!} new words today.

As always, thanks for the visit :)
