Buon Compleanno Fred

Isi created this banner for the special day!

Last night we celebrated Fred's 80th birthday. Fred, Isi, and I met a few years back when I was still living in the states. I would search on-line for information on Sicily, and one day I came across his picture blog. We started emailing and discovered that he lived in the nearby town of Linguaglossa. They both helped me with information on the documentation for staying in Italy. From then on, we chated from time to time and it's always a pleasure to meet up with them. Yesterday, being the big birthday party, I had invited my friend Susan to join me, knowing that there were to be many English speaking people attending. Turned out that a few of Susan's friends were also attending Fred's party. Small world... There were many new faces for me and those of which I hope to see again.
