Roaming in Athens


The story goes, Mom and Dad were walking through the national gardens in 1962 and they came upon a bronze statue of a naked man pulling a stump out of the ground. Dad pulled up his camera to take a picture, but Mom was so embarrassed by the nudity of the statue, she didn't want people, complete strangers, to see Dad taking the photograph and think, "How lascivious the Americans are!" or something to that effect. It only took 51 years, but now we have the photograph, though I think Mom was blushing.

Hepatitis rings.

Hard to imagine these military outfits being very practical on the battlefield.
