Early Morning Chat with Italy

Well, I’m up and running. Thank you all for your great suggestions for a name. I mixed the ideas, found one that wasn’t taken and here I am.
I just got off the phone with my cousin in Italy. That probably sounds like no big deal but I have been procrastinating about it for weeks. The language barrier is big, Italian lessons aside. To my great joy I managed to get accross who I was before they hung up thinking I was some sort of wierdo and “happy day”, Mina’s English is better than my Italian. That was the last detail hanging out there to nail down, well, except for getting tickets to see The Last Supper, the famous fresco in Milan.

  18. To all that have commented. First, thank you for your support. I can hardly believe I am going myself.

    Only one of you actually subscribed. I was wrong about the grey bar, you have to make a comment and then choose to be notified when a new post is made. (click the box)
