    If that is what makes you happy, I think your girls hit a home run. He was a very handsome man even when he was up there in age.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Our daughter, now 31, has loved him forever. I still remember her HS volleyball coach talking about heart throbs. When our DD told her that hers was Paul Newman, she said, "That old guy?!" The coach was probably close to 40 at the time. DD quickly told her to watch his movies, and young or old, that man was HOT! LOL

    Forgot to mention...........that blue batik goes perfect with his eyes............sigh. Enjoy the process and the product.
