Oh, I envy you! That's just the sort of thing I would LOVE - seeing remote

If you have any pictures posted on any photo sites, I hope you'll share the
links with us.
I bet it was great! (I just saw "Eat, Pray, Love" and could picture me -
younger - healthier,
& without canine responsibilities at home - doing something similar. Great
chick flick. :D)
