I've pm'ed DannyBres and requested he send Euro Nifty on to Spain.
I hope that's all right?

Absolutely fine. I've also messaged him without response.

Lets see what todays batch will bring.

This is from EU Niftys visit to Texas A&M, I can't remember if I've shared these previously but I dont think they have been shown yet.

The first thing that strikes you as you enter the campus grounds, is the watertower in the center.

And on every building there's their logo.

I was lucky to run into a foreign student who had been studying in Denmark the year before, and she was kind enough to tell me about the statue of it's founder.

If you wanted to pass your exams, you had to walk up and rub a nickle under his right toe.

And this one I've shown a different perspective of, but as earlier stated, out of sheer luck it was september 11th. when I went there, and half of campus is actualy an old millitary school, so they had this lawn dedicated to the people who aren't with us any longer due to the 9/11.

That's it for now, I think I've run out of EU Nifty goodies from it's visit to the states.

Don't worry Ma'am, We're university students, We know what We're doing.

I think it has something to do with the "Agricultural" part of the Texas A&M...

A&M stands for Agricultural and Mechanical

Sorry, you don't win anything though! ;)

"The nickname "Aggie" is common at land-grant or "Ag" (agriculture) schools in many states"
from Wikipedia

It's been a pleasure, but I hope to host Nifty in the spring or summer next time when it's warmer and there's more than 8 hours of daylight!

Your dogs are precious Big Bull, winter doesn't appear to bother them one bit! Looking forward to seeing more of your images while I wait for Nifty to arrive; doubt it will be before Xmas but, just maybe, Santa will help out on his way east...

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!
