Home sweet home from our fabulous trip to Italy! We spent a week in Campania with our dearest P.P. and then had a scrumptious 2 weeks in Chianni with 5 of the darlings from our book club. A wonderful time was had by all....we swam in the pool, drove up and down every Tuscan hillside and ate the best meals ever since the beginning of time. STARS!! *
Now, some people go to Italy and bring back shoes. Others bring back wine.
Some are inclined to bring home gorgeous leather goods and some people bring home art. These are sensible, well-rounded people with good heads on their shoulders. I think they are great.
What did I bring home, you ask? What did I have to carry for 18 hours, through airports, lounges, cafes, under my feet, through customs offices, onto another plane, across oceans, rivers, mountains and borders?
A real, live cat. A kitten. WE brought home a kitten.
His name is Lucca Antonia Chianni O. He is Italian and doesn't know any English words yet. He is supposed to be moving to Bryant's Cove in December but has to stay here until his language skills improve.
SHE has suggested that next year we go to Greece. The only I will go is if I get to bring home a goat. It would only be fair. Right?
