Be careful complimenting the Black Knight ... he is really a knight in shining armor. I got this lovely package from him last week (am only now getting around to showing it off):
LOOK!! Two—two CDs from the Mark Knopfler's concert in Rome (June, 13, 2005). With two lovely Italians announcing the songs! Whoo-hooo!
But wait! That's not all!! "In the envelope you will find a little thing
as a souvenir of the local half marathon, the 7th in
Italy for number of arrivals," writes Stefano.
Our friend, Stefano, came in SEVENTH in the half. SEVENTH.
Ah, Stefano: Congratulazioni!
And since my Italian is not so great, let me just add: Buona fortuna! Buon appetito! And finally: Mille grazie.
Update on me mum: I had to put her in a nursing home yesterday. Thanks to all for asking about her and for all your well wishes. You guys are amazing.
