A bottle among family



The missing friend,

an Italian who is funny,

was toasted as many subjects

were discussed

New career change for

youngest adult daughter,

New business starting with

her accompanying guy,

and interest displayed in

if new man is going to

stick around despite

his hectic single dad

parenting days are

here to stay for

at least another

7 or 8 years.

    • Thank you ever so much for this personal toast, Mike!
      I wish for us to meet, as well as your having a long, happy life with Florence. ❀
      I am sure I shared this Spanish toast my Mom and I will be saying next weekend on Fri, Sat and Sunday evenings over Labor Day:

      "Salud, pesetas y amor! Y tiempo para gastarlos!"
      "To your health, prosperity (literally pennies) and Love, and time to enjoy them!"

  1. I’m not sure if it’s a toast or a curse, Robin, but it seems someone must have said: “may you live in interesting times” for yours surely are. Have a great weekend.

    • Oh my goodness, Dan! This one made me grin, since it does have a sort of double edged “threat” to it. But, coming from you, I liked the idea of how possibilities and creativity can enhance our lives; to make it indeed “interesting times!”
      I will remember this one and try it out. Thank you.

    • Oh, I must try this on my new guy friend. He has been to Italy several times and his family lived only a short distance from the recent earthquake. They were from a coastal town, his parents set up a tailoring business in downtown Columbus. Now, due too the way times have changed, the shop is closed but they still have clients. πŸ™‚

      • That’s great. Our daughter married a native Florintine. Many a “chin chin” toast at their wedding. I hope it brings a smile to his face.
