Does the man in the wall painting have a head? It looks like his hat in on his neck.

Of course, I have a head without a body, so we might can work out a deal. -grin-

Hi Tor, thank you for your invitation to take part in your Hats Photohunt. Unfortunately, I'm not a hat person. About the only type of head covering I'll wear is baseball cap and that very rarely.

I like that painting, though.

And I thought we were going to see Papa with a hat. :)

The market must have been very interesting to visit.

I am lucky to have the day off here as it's Martin Luther King Day. And tomorrow is the big day for Obama.

Hope you and Anna had a great weekend!
