Did you take the photo that was shared with us today?  It's another one that I can't take my eyes off, what an incredible scene!!!

It was a bizarre day at sunset, and the moisture level was just perfect for this exposure. That’s what’s always nice about having your camera with you. Thank you for the compliment Brian England

Good morning, Paul... I'm all about having a good laugh. Someone once said a day without laughter is a day without sunshine. And that wise person was soooo right!

Good morning Paul. Your photo ties well to the words of Bob Hope. And, he was a master of making people laugh. Enjoy your day.

We were once 5 miles away from the air base that Bob home was performing at, and we could hear the laughter from there Wayne Martin

Hello Paul - I like laughter.  It can come in quantities large and not-so-large. The quality of this activity is likely the subject to opinion.  Despite possible complications, I recommend a regular dose of it.  I believe it may be best served with enough kindness for long lasting results.

Bob Hope was one of the most generous people to ever have graced this earth, Paul. As time goes by, younger generations will not have the amazing entertainment and music that once was. Love the vibrant picture!

I can still watch some of his specials on cable, TV, and even though outdated, his humor, still pretty huge smile on my face. Thanks for the memories Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can!

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS- WOW! I absolutely love that photograph. It's a true classic work of photographic art! And of course, I always loved Bob Hope and his humor too. We all need to laugh more from really good comedians like Bob Hope.

Another fabulous photo, Paul! And, I too, love Hope's sentiment. I'm a BIG believer in laughter - in fact, I insist on levity in business as well! It makes the clients' experience so much less stressful and so much more memorable.
