Sunday driver

A slowpoke behind the wheel is probably the number #1 grievance for any driver on the road. Normally the MotH does a quick pass but this time I asked him to get up close for a look at the offending vehicle. Mr. Sunday Driver had his own agenda and wasn’t afraid to say so. It says…

There’s no such thing as ‘wait’ in Italy

YES, another sign. But instead of hanging on a roadside stone wall, this one is neatly taped on the floor. It says WAIT…

What you can’t see is the rest of it, which in its entirety says ‘Aspetta qui il tuo turno’ (wait your turn here). This was at a food festival this past weekend while we were in line to put an order in at the cashier – just another show of hilarious proof that Italians and waiting are a bad mix. Those who know, live in, or have been to this country will understand what I mean. A staff worker came by to manually divide the undisciplined queue by sticking his arms into the line and making like Moses parting the Red Sea.

If I manage something usable out of my poorly lit images, I’ll post what 90 minutes of patience will get you at the Festa Lucana.

Quite the day for weddings…

May 19th – Here in the chestnut forest there also was an unforgettable wedding of sorts (the bride and groom sure chose a ‘royal date’) but unlike Harry and Meghan, it had Italian humor thrown in. I’ve posted these funny wedding banners before and while some can be a bit racy, it’s clear that anything that rhymes with marito will be a constant favorite.

Martina we said 1 mojito
not 1 marito (husband)
