Dear Carol,
I am quite a bit older than you (I'm nearly 77) but we have a whole lot in common, believe it or not! Congrats on your 100th posting! I love art, I live on part of the farm that used to belong to my family, but does no longer. It was like coming home. I can see the house we lived in when I was a teen-ager (and later years)from where I live now. I only live about 25 miles from where I was born in 1933. And a lot more stuff we have in common.
I'll be back.
