IMG4680296 - Italian Chef

Many years ago, my husband and I were invited to attend a concert at a local high school.  There we saw a silent auction table set up to help the musical department.  We won an Italian Man kitchen utensil holder. Since I really didn't have a collection at the time, I started looking for items similar when out shopping.  I just wanted three items to place on top of the refrigerator.  Who stops at three?   Now I have some chefs in a box stored in the basement, some Italian men are displayed on the kitchen counter and some items are hanging on the wall.  I even have trivets.

I get a kick out of this collection.  When a new guest arrives, I always ask, "Come on into the kitchen to see my Italian men?" I use the Mae West voice which she is famous for which is "Come up and see me sometime."  I am a dirty blonde but no way am I that sexy looking.  These Italian Chefs bring joy to my heart every day.  I giggle and have fun!  Will I ever grow up?   I don't think so.  Now, I see Italian chefs on my neighbor's garage.  Do you see the chef?

FYI:  The black line going across the image is the siding of the neighbor's garage.

"Composing is like driving down a foggy road toward a house.  Slowly you see more details of the house-the color of the slates and bricks, the shape of the windows.  The notes are the bricks and the mortor of the house."

Life interruped so I have not been able to post on SkyWatch Friday.

Covid-19 has been spreading around here lately.  I saw on FACEBOOK that a restaurant closed until further notice because someone infected the place and another restaurant offers only take out, which sounds like a good plan to me.

Lightning and thunder and high winds came into our area last night.  Direct TV, of course, was turned off because we couldn't see what was playing.  Instead we spent the evening laughing and watching LEGALLY BLONDE on Amazon Kindle.  It had been downloaded earlier.  

We ended the night being grateful.
