  • Hey there John! No, Madison is in the middle of the good old USA! I took this on Cape Cod Massachusetts….i lived there for a few months in one of my best friend’s cottages…LOVE it! Thanks so much for the wonderful comment!

    Beautifully captured. And the quote is so true, and unfortunately necessary. The tatters can always be stitched back together. Maybe a few scars where the seams are but hey, it works….

  • Thank you very much, Di! I have a few seams that have frayed..but, hey, I’d rather have a few battle scars than never experience all of life!

    John44about 2 years ago see.. so much i do not know yet of you..
    thanks for the info..
    (I am in Montreal at the moment.. that is close to Whitehorse) :-)x

  • There’s a bunch I don’t know about you as well…except for the important stuff. Like you are a good person and that you are kind and thoughtful….much more important to me than the geography of where you are from!

    wonderful capture Karen! Looks like fun! Have you tried it yourself?

  • Thank you Carol! What a thoughtful comment….I never tried it! Wish I had when while I still had the kind of upper body strength it takes to do this…looked really hard! I snow ski, however!
