However, it is also the birthday of several friends [Lisa, Hilary, ]. But today I want to give a shout out to “my kid” Rudy Sanchez in Austin, Texas. He is now 35 years old (or as the Italians would say, he HAS 35 years). You taught me so much, Rudy, and I always wished that I could have done more for you.
Happy 35th Birthday, Rudy!
|Torta for TWO ! Cheesecake from Osteria Santo Spirito. mmm|
Because you are doing so well creating city gardens for the people in central Texas, I want to send you some image of flowers, sculpture, and more from my beloved city in Italia. I wish you could have actually tasted this cheesecake from Osteria Santo Spirito with me. It was nothing short of yummy! [a little bird told me so. Hahaha]
Incidentally, the crew of Ron Howard with actor Tom Hanks, among many others, are filming in Florence now on another of the Dan Brown novels.
|Not quite "Hook 'em, Horns!" but I was going for that.|
|Apparently dogs are supposed to dress "properly" too! :-D|
|I love my blue suede boots! Giardino dell'Iris - Florence, Italia|
