My "Leg Lamp"

With my brother and sister-in-law in town, Cors and I found an excuse to finally get around to seeing all the local sights that we had been putting off for the past year. We spent a day amongst the Amish of Lancaster and stop by an antique store. It was there in a cramped basement aisle that I came face-to-face with my newest prized possession--Don Quixote!

It seems that an appreciation for this painting is an acquired taste--as I have yet met someone as enthralled about this picture as me! Only $10! When I brought the painting upstairs to buy it, the store owner smiled and said he thought no one would ever buy it! Awesome!
