Askew

This has been a lazy day.   There were things I wanted to get done, intended to get done, but I got sucked in by the Janissaries terrorizing the poor Irish in The Stolen Village and gave up on doing anything else.  I'll let you in on a little secret.  I don't take photos everyday.  Oftentimes I'll take pictures …
