Growing grapes and olives in the south of France, I can dream, can't I!

The 1950s for no other reason than I love the clothing from that era!

My teddy bear, Pinky. My grandparents gave him to me when I was born.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover - Mark Twain
