Waiting for David
My, how crazy some cats are (not mentioning names here) with the things they try to bring back into the country.
Somebody got held up in customs for concealing high grade Italian catnip.
As a result, he also had all of his salmon pate confiscated.
He somehow managed to still arrive home with one can.
I’m am not asking where he hid it.
Figure that comes under the TMI category.

He finally cheered up when I informed him that there were still 3 winners to draw for–evidently it reminded him that he had some bribes to collect on…..you “cats” know who you are;))
So I am not going to say that the trip to Italy has come to an end. We are just going home for a visit—like the Terminator…..We’ll be baaack:)))
We have to!
Eddie was in such a snit over the catnip that he had his friends in the old country do a little painting
Remember the big paint brush?
We’re gonna need two of them on our next trip.
I have to say, aside from the gelato, tiramisu, the beautiful sunsets and old villages of the Tuscan hillsides–
one of the happiest parts of the trip has been painting postcards to share with you:)))
I have so enjoyed the conversations they have elicited!
Threats, bribes, questions, advice, admonitions and more have added lots of fun to the collective adventure:)!
Hugs and thanks to you my friend for traveling to Italy with me.
So Eddie, in between eating his Italian salmon pate and grumbling about the missing catnip, has managed to claw
not one, not two, but three winning names from the heap:)))!!
Winner of Cartolina #9 is
Winner of Cartolina #10 is
And the mystery gift??
Well, I decided to post two for the winner to choose from.
One, the chef’s hat handmade by momma in Panzano at one of my favorite restaurants there—for you to pretend like your “cheffing” it up in Tuscany at your own place
One Italian leather petite purse–suitable for an over the shoulder evening out with keys, credit card and a lip gloss. It’s soft as butter and hello…..it’s Caribbean blue;))
And the winner for the little treasure from Italy??
“What a lovely time you are having!
Each day has treated us with delightful creative daydreams!
Thanks for sharing!!!!” ~Beulah
Congrats Kathy, Lisa, and Beulah!!
All you gals get me your addresses so I can get your cartolina’s, etc out in the mail to you:)!
Big hugs and sincere thanks for being part of the this time in Italy.
Keep your bags packed—-you never know what’s on the horizon.
It’s the only break I can get from Eddie, so I am already planning our next great escape;)))
Last but not least, a little lemoncello to toast our trip to Italy…
One for me, one for you, and one for customs agent who bailed Eddie’s butt out;))
P.S. I have had a considerable amount of email while traveling—-if I missed anything important, please just email me again:))
P.S.S. I will be doing a follow up post on the Tuscany, Italy trip. You can leave your comments on this blog to let me know the stuff you’d like to hear more about. If it involves how Eddie smuggled in the one can of pate, I can tell you now–you really don’t wanna know….
P.S.S.S. My workshop in California starts this coming Wednesday….never a dull moment ’round here:)) Eddie is wanting to go–says they are requesting his paw prints on the Hollywood Walk of Fame…
I know. I didn’t know what to say either.
