Just inside my front door, I have a very large framed copy of a Louis Icart print (below) entitled "Youth", that I picked up at a junk shop for $10. It is supposed to be in color, but my copy is black and white.

For some reason I absolutely adore it, but I am slightly embarrassed to say so. I suspect most people would think it was silly looking because it is so overly romanticized and girly-girl. On the other hand, it is my house so I really don't care - - I like it.

Is this the ER.org confessional?

I dream of living in a small log cabin in the Alps. All I want is a quiet life spent tending the garden and raising a few chickens (like my grandparents). I want to live close to nature, with the sound of church and cow bells all around, and fresh air running through the house. I have the land and enough money to make the dream come true, but DW would be bored to death.

What a wonderful dream. Maybe at some point she will feel ready for it, too.

My kids (23 and 21) were completely shocked to find out I participate in this forum.

Amused by the smells and sights of California. Very skunky odors all over the place where we are living, and the Craigslist ads surprise me:

I officiated high school baseball and football for 12 years and never had to eject an adult for misconduct.

You're embarrassed? Hey, I like prints of C.M. Coolidge! Gallery of Cassius Marcellus Coolidge's Work - DogsPlayingPoker.org

If you decide you like it enough, just check goggle -- color prints are available. Here's just one:

I buy things and then by the time I get home I realize I don't really want or need them so I return them unopened and unused. This happens quite often. I was once banned from returning anything else at a local department store.
