Brilliant photos, now need to think of which ones to vote for but with just three votes it will be difficult

Once again, an agonising choice... to whittle it down to three is... ooh... my brain hurts!!  :)

Still 13 voters. Please do support our photographers who have submitted photos, which now are memories. While choosing only three photos is difficult, it is most enjoyable !

I have voted, they are all great photos.
I remember being there and seeing George Burns perform on the 1984 World Cruise
in the Double Room that was filled to capacity,
Great memories.

There are two photos in the lead.

If you haven't voted yet there is still time before voting closes this afternoon.  Lots of good picture to choose your three favourites.
