An Italian-American living la dolce vita in the Deep South

Life Lately (grammar, bottom's up, pottery in Tuscany, lunch on the Grand Canal, new glasses)

1- A routine doctor's visit, but since it wasn't with my usual doctor I had to answer some basic questions as she read through my chart. "Let's see," she said. "You're forty ... what?"

"Actually, I'm 51," I replied.

She looked up. "I would have never guessed that in a million years."

And I thought: I really, really like her.

(And I also thought: This forty-something fifty-one year old still needs to get new glasses.)



2-  The colors, the patina ... pottery perfection somewhere in Tuscany.


3- Black and white, stark contrast ... drama somewhere in my dining room.



4- Pizza on the canal. The Grand Canal, that is. In Venice. 



5- Grammar ... you have to be thorough, but it can be rough. 



6- Top to Bottom, Bottom to Top ...
