RANDOM PHOTO


All is quiet.  My Brother-in-Law left last Friday and he is greatly missed.  We had two weeks of site-seeing, wonderful stories of years gone by, with much laughter in the retelling.  

The weekend has also been busy as I had two friends arrive on Saturday, with one leaving yesterday and the other an hour ago.  More wonderful stories and again much laughter.  It feels a bit strange to be quiet and to sit down with no where to go, for the time being.  This never lasts too long, and yes I am smiling here.  

To my family and to my friends, we love you and miss you.  Come back soon!

I will be sharing photos of the places we have seen over the next several posts.  In the meantime here is a random photo taken while in the Capitol Building, of Giuseppe Garibaldi.  You can read an interesting article about this man here, and also here.

  4. I look forward to company, but I'm usually tired and ready for some solitude when they leave. Of course, I miss them almost immediately.

  7. I think you must have been a great tour guide for family and friends. Giuseppe Garibaldi certainly led an extraordinary full life by all accounts and his likeness certainly has gotten into some famous places!

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
