Today is a holiday, labor day ! In Belgium it's the use to offer at least one lilly of the valley or a bouquet to your family and friends. So this is my bouquet for you !

Pookie enjoys her sheets !
When we are with people at home or out Mr. Gattino likes to speak english and tell this story with a very strong Italian accent. You know Italians are unable not to pronounce the "r".For example Laura becomes "Lowwwwwwwra". Although I have heard this at least 1000 times during 38 years of marriage, it still makes me laugh. So now immagine to "roll" the "r's" and hear an Italian accent.

"One day ima gonna London to bigga hotel. In morning I go down to eat breakfast. I tella waitress I wanna two pissis toast. She brings me only one piss; I talla her I want two piss. She say go to the toilet. I say you no understand, I wanna to piss onna my plate. She say you better no piss onna plate, you sonna ma bitch. I don't even know the lady and she call me sonna ma bitch.
Later I go to eat at the bigga restaurant. The waitress brings me a spoon and knife but no fock. I tella her I wanna fock. She tell me everyone wanna fock. I tell her you no understand. I wanna fock on the table. She say better not fock on the table, you sonna ma bitch.
So I go back to my room and there is no shits onna my bed. Call the manager and tella him I wanna shit. He tell me to go to toilet. I say you no understand. I wanna shit on my bed. He say you better not shit onna bed, you sonna ma bitch
I go to the checkout and the man at the desk say : "Peace on you". I say piss on you too, you sonna ma bitch, I gonna back to Italy !"
Accents can sometimes be very funny, be assured that I don't sink but think !

Hé! hé! I love the italien accent, the italien! Here in the south we have fast all an italien ancestor!
That's why the father of my grand father was coming from Alpen in Italia. My husband helped me for my blog! He wanted absolutly create a site with wordpress! It seems to be ok. So it could take 5 minutes with blogger but it took hours and hours with word press and we had to wait 24 hours for ".fr"!
Je suis entièrement d'accord avec toi Gattina pour ce problème de vente libre d'armes. Ma belle soeur vient de s'acheter une petite maison en République Dominicaine pour seulement 40 000 euros. Elle m'a proposé de venir là-bas en vacances mais depuis qu'elle m'a dit que là-bas les gens étaient autorisés à porter des armes je me suis rendu-compte que je ne pouvais concevoir de marcher dans la rue sachant que des gens soient librement armés!
Un paradis qui peut devenir un enfer en l'espace de quelques secondes...

I saw your comment over at Melli's about being hospitalized and taking a "Happy Pill" every day. I was hospitalized two years ago for one week and came home drugged to the teeth. I am not currently on any medication but have told my husband that he needs to watch for it...if he ever thinks I need to go back on medication I will. Mine was mostly caused by environmental stress: Pushy family. We are working on moving me far away from them all :) (if you ever visit me, don't comment about the moving...they all read my blog *sigh*!)
I have been here before...Melli talks about you all the time...but Bloglines won't let me Blogline you, and Google Reader won't pick you up either, so I'm going to have to fix my bookmarks so I will remember to come back! You're a lovely read! :)
