Did you think I died? Just not getting to the prompts quickly. Had this one picked out (I had three for it, actually, but not going to push my luck) early in the week, but PB was having "problems" which they seem to have only sort of solved. But at least I was able to get to my account and eventually copy the link for this picture. This is a big cannon (It's name is Big Something I Forget) from the Edinburgh Castle in Scotland. I am assured that it made a very loud noise when it was functional.

Okay, I was able to load one more. This is from the same trip - a sign on the pier where we stopped for lunch on our boat ride up the Dolphin Coast. I'm assuming by "no bombing" they mean cannonball-type jumping off the pier, but one never knows. They could be talking about things that would make loud noises. :)

Great choice! :D Is that Mons Meg?

Yes! That would be the name I couldn't remember. I was thinking mmmm sounds, but "mom" just didn't sound much like a cannon. :) Thanks.
Great choices! *holds my ears*

Photobucket is VERY slow for me, always.
Thanks. Well, it's often slow, but this time it eventually popped up a banner saying they were either having trouble or working on a problem. Something like that. And that they would be up an running as soon as they sorted it out. Which took a couple of days, apparently. Seems fine for now.
The gun they do fire at one-o-clock is loud enough - I can imagine the sound of Mons Meg being a very big noise!
I can imagine it is/was!
Love that sign!
I had to take a picture of it. There was nobody from the tiny village around to explain it to me. :)
