When you see this Ram - Smile
Check back occasionally, I add pictures as I take them.
  If you see a picture you have to have and want to hang it on the wall, I'll send you free a file big enough to go 8 x 10. For personal use only, all pictures copyrighted.
  Some of the photos have recognizable people in them, although in public domain, I will blur your identity if you wish. If you observe a violation of procedure or safety I will gladly remove the photo.
