Thanks for the warm welcome. Yes - we have a lot in common. I'm envious that you're living in Rome. I would like live up in Umbria for a few months to a year (or two). Oliver sounds like he's quite a cat. My Burmese cat Philip is on my lap as I'm typing this now.
sorry to hear about the dreary rain, hope it brightens up for Christmas...Haven't firmly decided whats for Christmas dinner but I recently saw a goat tenderloin in the freezer and that is looking like the prime suspect for dinner. What are you fixing?? It is very COLD here today, was 12*F this am. Bringing in the firewood keeps me warm! All my best to the whole family!! Beth
ohmygosh Licia, that was so neat!!! Thank you Oliver for the clever message, I loved it!! And thank you Licia for the Christmas wishes. We put up our tree and the lights and hope to get the tree decorated this weekend. I love looking at the lit tree! I really like this holiday season...and we've had snow already! Do you get snow? I am so excited about your special holiday greeting!!! Love to you and yours too!! Beth
