I have to say that the current streak of sunny days is so…what’s a good word…splendacious that I settled down a bit on my daily annoyance level. Yes you heard right. Annoyance at nonsense rubbish on tv news (I prefer the commercials), annoyance at people who scream bloody murder at their little kids (shameful), and the most recent one to push my hot button – the cutting of so many trees in this area. In the top image there is a row of trees on the left. That was 3½ months ago. By law, trees can’t be given the axe unless the Corpo forestale dello Stato (State Forestry Corps) gives the okay, so whatever reasoning behind all this must’ve been a necessary one. We’re sure going to miss the shady patches on our walks when the days start warming up more.
