My Pen Pal in Italy

Day before yesterday, on a whim, whilst driving to work, I called my pen pal in Italy. Giorgio. We’ve been pen pals for years, and met for the first time on our trip to Italy this year. Talking to them put a smile on my face that lasted all day. His wife,  Ada, is so cheery it is infectious, she answered the phone and we chatted for a while and she passed the phone to Giorgio.

This morning I got an email from their son, who we also met. It seems the torch has been passed from father to son.

Her we’re having rain every day. It is nice for the plants, but keeps me from riding my scooter. Our trip to Italy made me love my scooter even more!

The screenhouse/shed is coming along nicely. I am building a door for it. I’m worried about achieving the precision necessary to build a (perfectly) functional door. I expect to have the shed/screenhouse done in the next couple of days. Today maybe, weather permitting. I will post pictures when it’s done.

My wife is going to Canada on Saturday. So start making sandwiches to mail to me. Just in case.

This morning I woke up and walked outside. I immediately saw a very bright satellite. It must have been the International Space Station. it was very cool.

Have a good day!
