Beautiful image, Cathy and I'd love to hear the story....both your "intoxicating" version or Linda's more "sobering" version!

But I guess much like Vegas, "What happens in the Lakehouse stays in the Lakehouse"! Unless of course Linda had her camera with her, which might make for some interesting BP postings..lol! #1702414
