It is Thursday, what a fabulous day and this is what is happening now.

Remember, there is wonderful $0.99 basket full of great images, for limited time only.

My "Through the Gates"
Boring? Hih, these are the closed gates only. You need to open them.

I've gone mad with pics, but these are the bolted hinges, of course.

Gate opening slowly...

Here he is, Mr Macaw Parrot G. (Gunhild) Pula-aho.
Yes, Gunhild is girl's name, but parrots are sooo tiny when born, you'll find it difficult to see if male or female, hih.

There is a story behind Pula-aho, and I'll give you more details after translating the story from Finnish to English.
