By Bloody, Do they mean as in red sky or cursing the sky?

You're very sharp, Twilite... we do walk the same walk as our mom, Annelisa. We wanted our own place to show our pics as mom never put ones of us up... all her pics are just boring trees and stuff... never any pics of us!! :-(

Hi FD! Thanks and great to know you have a blog of your own. I shall add you to my blogs browsed.

Like your mum, I guess I'm also one of those who will never put any pics of those close to me. I keep this blog purely for that interests 'me'. Should I do get 'into trouble', it's just self and not the rest of my family.

This blog world is interesting and yet dark...some bloggers had suffered unkind words, hijacked or vandalised apparently. So please take care and I hope you wouldn't fall into the hands of those unkind virtual souls!!!

Hello Twilight, I am blog-hopping today. Bloody Sky is an interesting name, and your picture looks so peaceful.

That's a beautiful pic. It reminds me of the harbor where we used to have our sailboat. Very peaceful....
