Nice photo. That's a new tradition for me, but it sounds like a good idea. I'm not familiar with the writers, will have to Google them!

Great shot yet again Tony!
Well, these two have been through a lot and i'm sure they will keep good company to all March 1st Martentzi shoppers this year too! Cheers!

Love this shot!!! They look so relaxed...and I'm sure if you got close enough, you could hear the conversation!!!

I love how the girl sitting beside the hatless one frames his head with her hair!!!
