    Painting Venice. Fun. I enjoyed painting too. I had to say enjoyed because I haven't in a long time!

    This was a fun one.

    Got me wondering if they'd even trust me with the keys to a Ferrari if I showed up on the lot and asked, "If I wreck this in the next ten minutes, will your insurance cover it?"
