MM sez: Sooooo love this pic ~ ~ ~ ~ 'nothing like the wind in your mane' - - - one of my favourite things is WIND!!! (as long as it is not blowing a gale - or - a hot'n dusty westerly - or - whipping with rain/hail.......) I just love the feel of wind in my face. It is soooo refreshing and almost like a benison! This beautiful fellah is transported as well!
