Posts Tagged ‘A Concert’

Welcome and Benvenuti to all my Lovely Followers around the World.

I can’t help it, I love Christmas and this week’s blog is all about the festive season.

80829576_10158062617268083_4358564233961537536_oIn our local village of Fiano a few days ago, my man and I left La Dispensa after morning coffee and was shocked to find a car parked with all four wheels on the road.  The road has a white line along it, which is generally acknowledged as a ‘loading line’.  To avoid parking on the line the Locals park half on the pavement thus avoiding having their wheels touching the line.  The pathways are so damaged that it is accepted that pedestrians walk on the road, which is smoother anyway. I said to my man “Look at this, a car parked on the road which means I will have to walk around it!”  Without batting an eyelid my man replied “Must be a foreigner!”  I was heading for our lovely village ceramic shop to admire the Christmas window, you must come and visit it!  I just love festive window displays79644037_10158062618658083_6113954265900777472_o

Back in La Dispensa, I had been reading the papers and looking for some interesting Rock Concerts.  Then I noticed a poster for a local concert in Marcialla on 21 December in that lovely little theatre called Teatro Comunale Regina margherita, yes, the one with the lovely soft red velvet seats!  Now it’s not all rock, but it looks like a great band with a whole range of instruments.  It’s headed up by the very popular Fabrizio De Andrè You tube who has a lovely way with the acoustic guitar.  Perhaps we should all go?  Book tickets Here or telephone 055 807 4348.

Now don’t forget, if you have bought all three of my books below, you are entitled to a free signed short story book called The Man in Black.  Just send me a copy receipt or a foto of your books.  It’s my treat for Christmas and to thank you for buying my books.  I love my readers.  Email me at june.finnigan@virgin.net.
