I do have his book. I look at it a lot. Very beautiful shot, Linda! I've lost a couple of emblems too so I may re-enter. Looks like you had a fun dress up day with the girls. I have a chest with old costume jewelry and my granddaughters love to get in it. Even 18 month old Fischer love them. I knew I kept them for some reason. I never had any girls.
