sitting about 30 feet from shore on a lovely still morning at portobello. so calm I was able to get my, non waterproof, phone out and take a panorama shot. great way to start the day.
I am unsure whether he is deserving of the time it took me to make this one? anyone who feels they have to whap their privates into a pigs mouth to ‘join the gang’ has surely already shown a poor judgement so why listen to anything he says?
so did Obama fail? the changes I thought would have happened have not – it seems an even scarier place to live and visit, especially if you are classed as a minority. i have fond memories of the states – as I spent parts of my youth there – but I doubt I will go back 😦
