  4. lovely photograph.

    i agree! in fact, i think men who have an interest in fashion are more "manly" than the ones who don't, because they're risk-takers!

  5. How long does it take to make a statue? I was listening to someone say other day that the Crazy Horse Moument has been in the works for the 50 years..and its still not done. Of course, I know its in the side of mountain..but never the less that's an awful long time for a Native American who would never get his picture taken so no one really knows for sure what he looks like.

    Thanks for the note. I appreciate it.

    And love statues, and miss them, even though I was born long after they were made on a regular basis.
