Woo I'm at 37! But now I just want to go book plane tickets to all the rest. I guess this is what Pinterest is for in the meantime, right?

So jealous that you've been to Greece! That one's high up on my list of must see places :)

I wish I could spend my life ticking places off this list like it's no one's business! But, then there's this thing called work ;)

As an older art collector since my wife passed away, I must admit to being very partial to collecting nudes in art, as original paintings or as good prints, that I have displayed all over the house. (I like to see the surprised faces of my new visitors).
This one,
http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LHTDD, by Emile Munier, is hanging in one corner of my bedroom and was printed by wahooart.com, where I am a very good customer.
