  1. That`s a tremendous gallery from the USA David….thank you.!
    I was over in Oklahoma and Arkansas 2 years ago visiting relations and was surprised to see the extent of the rural poverty,especially in Arkansas. Akin to a third world country in some places…rudimentary shacks with no running water or electricity. A bit like certain areas of Glasgow 🙂
