      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWnjPVizYDg Bronze sculpture: “Diana” by Edward McCartan (1879–1947) The beauty of youth and healthy spirit is not porn spewed on the West wholesale since 1945.

      Just the dog alone is better than anything Africa ever produced in 6,000 years.

      Even though Big Jim Jesus has left me, I still like to walk naked in the autumn woods. The few people I meet just ignore it as we stop to chat. I think that is very sophisticated.

      But that statue is beautiful.

      Great men like your grandfather and those like him in his time are scarce today.

      Yes, those high-flying metal workers were very brave, but so is Jill Mustang for walking naked in the woods.

      Jill, we are pulling for you. Big Jim Jesus deserves to have his thing crucified, if you know what I mean.

    6. Jill Mustang and Big Jim Jesus Says:

      Thankyou, Ant. I just feel more alive and in tune with nature when I walk nude in the woods. And, like Diana, I usually take my hound with me.

      It is completely innocent and has nothing to do with Wicca, or sex, etc. I hope you understand.

      Thank you for your kind words.
