Bad planning

When your clothes dryer looks like this you really need to plan ahead.

We’ve got a wedding to go to in Lucca this weekend. I don’t have any clean underwear. And it’s raining.

Necessity…they say is the mother of hanging-your-undies-on-a-candlabra-in-front-of-the-dehumidifier.

On a related but rather tangential note, Sunday happens to be David’s and my 12 year wedding anniversary. It’s also Father’s day in the US. As I will be on a train and unable to post on that day, I’d like to recognize these two celebrations now.

Dad, Happy Fathers’ Day. I’m sure this post about my underwear hanging in the kitchen of my dryerless little house in Italy was not really what you expected 12 years ago when you gave me away to that “crazy, old guy” who I wanted to marry. Thanks, from both of us, for all the fatherly love and support.

David, honey…what a long strange trip it’s been. Sure am glad to have you as my traveling partner.

    Congrats to you two. I can't think of a nicer couple living the dulce vida (spelling?). Mary and I are about to hit 18 years, it seems you folks are catching up to us.

    Congrats on the wedding annv. Wayne and I celebrated our 31st last night. Off to Lake Chelan this weekend with our grown boys, Paul, Cindy and Kate (of course all the partners of the kids). So our real family celebration will occur then. Your jewelery looks great. Cindy is going to pick me up some pieces when she is there next month.
