My Big Pleasingly Plump Italian Family Vacation

I'mmmmmmmmm back.......I bet you did not even know I was gone.........but I was. Poof.........I was here, and then gone for 11 days. Taking a family vacation one or more times a year can do either/or.....either bring you all together or, not. Fortunately this vacation was a keeper.


Let's start with the baggage........my husband will never let me forget that I always overpack. I am forced to take pictures of my luggage from every conceivable angle, which he later will show others to gain sympathy and support. This was two days worth of clothing.





No I am not going to bore you with all the details, like how in addition to my metal knees that set off airport security.......I wore an underwire bra.........groments everywhere on my pants, a blouse with metal buttons, metal jewelry, metal shoe buckles, and finally a metal hair clip. After my very intensive shake down by security.........I felt the need to at least get the address of the security guard in order to exchange Halloween greetings. Bad idea.......wearing metal to the airport from head to toe..........I attracted so much attention with my arms outstretched, and palms turned up for so long..........people were beginning to gather around me to hear me sing praises to Heaven, or preach.........I think I might have said something about Hell, however.


Anyway, no..........vacation pictures of the usual subjects.............like my family. I like to take pictures of everything other than them unless I want to use them in some diabolical work of art. I do occasionally throw in a few people shots, though, to prove I really do have a family that sometimes consents to go somewhere with me. So, instead these vacation shots are to provide creative fodder..........at least that's how I am planning to use them...........but always in a most unconventional way.



Our accomodations............a little rustic..........but plenty of pans for cooking..........NOT



A little prayer first.........for the wisdom to make something out of what is to follow.....................

A little puffer belly not in a row........

Hmmmmmmmm I call this face Angelina.......

Surrealistic................

Hookers...hookas....hook ups?.........

Red sunset in the sails.......

I wish MY family took pictures of everything but me! I hate having my picture taken, and they seem to delight in torturing me. I really don't think it's funny! So I guess you're my idea of a dream relative! Love your airport story! ~Lori

Where did you go??? Did I miss where? It is kind of late....by my standard not by yours....but I didn't see a destination. I'm sure the journey WAS the destination yet I know those photos were not of Napa.
Glad you had a good trip and I hope the security guard was cute enough to at least make it worth while! HaH!
