Many years ago, there was an episode of Married With Children where Al Bundy wanted to go on vacation, but couldn't afford the trip of his dreams to Hawaii. So, he traveled vicariously by renting videos, putting a fence around the couch, and sitting in the living room enjoying Hawaii. We thought it was a really funny episode. (I think this is one of those "you had to be there" moments.) To this day, my husband and I laugh about Al and his travels, and say we're Al when we can't go somewhere.
This week is spring break in Colorado Springs. In the past, before we retired from teaching, we usually took a trip over break. Now, I guess we could say every week is spring break, and our big trip is later this summer. So, this morning, when my husband asked me what I was painting , I told him I was Al and painting Patzcuaro.
My sister-in-law has a home in Patzcuaro, Mexico. 2 spring breaks ago, my daughter, my sister-in-law and I took a trip down there. It's a beautiful colonial town in the middle of the country. So, this week, I'm pretending I'm painting in Patzcuaro.
