It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

Isn't she just adorable - she has the most beautiful eyes

Can't believe it's already been a year . . .

Baby Charlotte

Lauren,

Thanks so much for sharing Charlotte 'a photos. She is indeed beautiful. I cannot believe she's a year old. I must be getting old. Time is just flying by.

It took me two days to reply because I had to find my password. I had just a little help with that.

How is all else going with you? I miss everybody.
Love
Cathie

Ciao Amici

Just wanted to let you know that the HGTV - House Hunters International in Orvieto is re-airing tonight @ 11:30pm

Since I missed it the first time around, I have been waiting for it to be on again

Dino and I both fell in love with that hilltop town
Rome, Florence & Venice too

I loved the entire trip, event the hilltop prison, but Orvieto was just perfect in every way. Unless you're the pageant dove, in which case it's traumatic and upsetting.

I guess we should be glad that the dove wasn't attacked by a seagull or crow like the poor things at St Peter's yesterday. . That was freaky!

Heather,

I'm so sorry for the loss of your Uncle. He was an amazing man. I know you have wonderful memories.

How is your Mom doing these days?

Hello dear!

Thank you for your thoughts. I am alternately sad and then trying to remember that he is quite busy chopping wood and teaching everyone in the angel band new four part harmonies, things he loved to do.

My mom is settled in Seattle, slowly acclimating to a new place. She's very brave! We had kind of a rough run just now. I flew to Orlando for a meeting early on the 17th, and my mom had to be admitted to the hospital late that night with a Noro Virus that went through her independent living place. I promptly came down with the flu (despite being vaccinated last fall ) and so we decided I would stay put (I was afraid to expose her to my flu and give her something else to deal with) and manage from afar. My best friend helped out a lot, but it was stressful to be so far away. Of course one of the big reasons to have her near me was so that she wouldn't be alone if she was in the hospital. The timing was diabolical. I am home now and she will be ready to come home day after tomorrow so we are getting back on track.

I hope you are having a good winter. Do you have any travel plans?

Heather,

I wish I could have seen him perform in person. He certainly changed a lot of lives.

I'm sorry to hear that your Mother was so ill. The Noro Virus is an insidious illness. I'd say you did what you intended having her near you. You just had a trusted stand-in take your place. I'm glad she agreed to move. I'm sure she's getting better and more personal care now. The flu is really nasty. I'm pretty sure that my sister was at the same meeting. I think she has come down with a nasty upper respiratory infection each year she's attended.

We were in Orlando for Disapalooza. That was great fun. We saw dear friends- caught up since the trip, etc. I wish we'd seen you too. I'm sure we 'll go to Denver sometime next summer. We're still deciding what else to do. I'm dying to back to Europe. What are your plans?

Take care

Wow, cannot believe our adventure was almost two years ago...hope everyone is well!

Just to let you know, this Sunday 4/20/14 on The Amazing Race (CBS) the schedule says they will be in Orvieto! They were in Rome last week.

I will watch just to catch a glimpse of one of the highlights of our trip.

Thanks so much for letting us know. I'm going to try and find last week's episode in Rome too.

I think about that adventure all the time. It was so much fun with the best co- vacationers we could wish for.

By the way, Italy is selling off an island in the Venice lagoon and an unused monastery in the south somewhere to raise money for the country. Wish we could all go in and buy the island ( but I'd take either one, truth be told).

Tell Cathy hi!

Agreed - both Venice and Orvieto are my favorites, would love to live in either city.

Orvieto was so quaint and warm, and Venice was a marvel of discovery at every corner.

Best wishes to you and Jack, I am sure our paths will cross someday!

I hope it's on an ABD tour.

Another trip to Italy would suit me well. It's such a special place.

Take care,
