We’ re Baaa-aaaaack


We just got back from Italy where we have been sipping wine, sight-seeing  and sweating the past two weeks.    We had an amazing time and I can’t wait to share all the details with you.  But right now jet lag, laundry and editing 1543 pictures is standing in the way.  Not to mention my google reader that contains two weeks of blog posts to catch up on.  That probably will take an entire day by itself.

We had no internet and very limited cell phone over there which in some ways was nice as it really showed us how much time we waste every day doing nothing.  But it was weird not to be able to check the weather (hot) or have any other English TV channel other than Fox News.  So if Fox was not reporting it in the last two weeks, we know nothing about it.

The waiter at the sports bar in Charlotte where we had a couple hour layover after our 11 hour flight from Rome must have thought we had a very non-communicative marriage.  We immediately sat down, ordered cold drinks and whipped out our phones and really did not speak much for the next hour or so. 

Here is a couple unedited pics while I try to get back in the swing of things-
