    Rosanna you are definitely a woman after my own heart. Although I do not know how you pulled it off in your long dress, and kept yourself looking like you just walked out through the church door. I was born in Galena Ka. and have only been back there once. It was a coal mining town. My Grandfather actually owned and operated one of the mines ( way back in the day). However it does not look like a place I would want to call home, but would love to explore it if I were younger.How I envy you but am very happy that you are able to do these things that you so enjoy while you are young.
