  1. Nice read.

    Hi…quick question, please. How do I get my post to show for today’s – Daily prompt. I followed all the instructions and for over an hour, my article hasn’t appeared on the Daily Post page for today’s prompt- Outlier. What does it mean to ping? I think I did it and yet no success.

    Please explain, thanks.

  3. Your Haiku is perfect for the photos. Pearl is definitely interested in those reindeer. Interesting that they came down from the mountains. Sounds like you were at the right place at the right time to see a unique site.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. Most of the snow has melted from the higher plateau and we thought they would be up there – to see them this far down was a wonderful surprise on a Friday morning :o) We hope you are having a great day too and we wish you and Tippy a wonderful weekend xxx
