Hi Ted, mon ami

I'm absolutely agree with all you say, absolutely true. This picture  
was a fast reaction of a moment, but not a good one, in my opinion,  
neither bronze medal...., I've posted this to share a fun moment  
founding on the street 3 se?oritas as the Kings, yes, unfortunately  
this is not a good one, consider it just a "sample" of good intentions  

Thank you very much mon ami
