Shelter from the storm

 

                     Diablo canyon, a ghost town in Arizona. U.S.A. In its time,

                     more dangerous than Tombstone,and Dodge.... The first

                     sherriff they had signed on at 3pm, and was buried at 8pm.....

Excellent, Frank...you are becoming steeped in The Wild West.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ray, I was in training for a long while before getting here, smile

Oh, I can inmagine this dangerous area while looking at your threatening, stormy sky! Elizabeth writes: "always sunny in Arizona"!
Frank L Croston.: It is easy to imagine this place in times gone by, Philine...It is always sunny...Except when it rains....smile

Diablo canyon is a suiting name!
Frank L Croston.: It suits it well, Philine.
Man... If those stones could speak. The sky tells us it might have been a dangerous place.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed, Jacquelyn, not just from the weather.....

And there's virtually nothing left of the place. This is a fine ghostly shot Frank
Frank L Croston.: Just a few old buildings, Chris, as you say, a ghostly place....

I guess the place had quite an atmosphere, Frank
Frank L Croston.: Indeed it did, Elisabeth.
That's less than most football managers Frank
Frank L Croston.: Ha, not far out, Bill.
That is a very short career Frank.
Frank L Croston.: He must have had such high hopes.....
What a sky you have captured. I think it may not always be sunny there.
Frank L Croston.: Most of the time it is, Mary, you just have to avoid the storms, a land of extremes.
Were you able to take shelter in this building or was it a dash to the car.
Frank L Croston.: No need, Brian, it didn't have a roof anyway! The storm skirted around us.
Looks just up your street there Frank
Frank L Croston.: Good fun, Janet, I enjoyed exploring it.

A very efficient burial process. Must have been middle summer. You really have the pictures to create a coffee table book on Arizona. Excellent.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Louis, we are working on it. smile
Didn't qualify for a pension then.
Frank L Croston.: Just missed I think, Martin....
Ah! Those were the days smile
Frank L Croston.: Not!
