Ditto.

We have a big bronze fountain in the center of our city and it was made in Munich, Germany in the 19th century. And it is covered with women!!!

My friend Megan jumped in it, the married with Children fountain. Haha. She got away with it too!

Heehee. It IS the fountain seen in the opening credits of "Married with Children"! I bet it's really pretty in person. Thanks for the smile this afternoon.

Thanks for sharing. I haven't seen it in person in quite a few years. Do they still do the colored lights at night?

Wow, what a beautiful fountain! Don't think I ever saw that when I lived there.

Beautiful! We drove past it when I was there a few weeks ago, but didn't get up close. I should have.

I am so sorry... but the first thing that popped into my brain was 'Married with Children.' Now I can't get the song out of my head. 'Love and Marriage!...."

Ree said...

Did you look up and wave at me? Because that's what I see out of the window every day. ;-)

Aren't I the lucky one?

My lil ones are obsessed with fountains - we go on fountain walks all of the time. This? This would be the mother of all fountains to them.
