A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre. After careful planning, he got past security, stole the paintings and made it safely to his van. However, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of fuel.

When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and make such an obvious error, he replied, "Monsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings. I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh."

(And you thought I didn't have the De Gaulle to pass this on.) Well, I figured I had nothing Toulouse.

Sewing is almost better than Chocolate.

I just sent this one to my daughter. I think she'll like it. :up: She's all excited because she just got her new schedule for school this fall and she has art the first semester. :up:
