I'll try not to schmooze all over things!
Avery tagged with an award and I don't know what to say except, thank you. Thank you very much. I haven't won anything since that 5 foot long pencil from a box of Honeycomb cereal way back. No, the pencil wasn't in the box but I sent away the certificate and sure enough a few weeks later a giant pencil arrived at the house. Lori, don't even say that pencil was yours. It was mine. Where is it now anyway? In the parent's basement if Dad didn't throw it away.
So this award is because: “As it goes, schmoozing is the natural ability 'to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection. Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way.' "
I have the power to schmooze but I promise to use it only for good and only when attacked never in offense or to be offensive. I must have gained this power because I've been in Italy for 4 years now. That's right I'm getting ready to celebrate 4 years at the end of August. That's a story in itself. I moved to Italy in August of 2003. Man, I was really clueless back then!
I'm supposed to nominate 5 others but I only follow about 5 other blogs and I think they have the award from someone else. So Avery thanks again for this honor.
Here is that photo of the Fiat 500 convertible I mentioned way back.
