Some of us require nothing in order for that to be a good way to pass time,
others require books and tea.
While the AF is mostly a fan of loose leaf tea there are some good blends pre-bagged.
Just stay away from Lipton!!Recently uncovered in a basket somewhere were these post cards purchased in London to describe the family's English vacation.
Interestingly enough, those last two describe most vacations taken near home as well.
Perhaps that explains why England felt so homey.
In honor of Italy and Greece, the two countries abroad where members of the family have lived, we present the following:
A Greek and an Italian were drinking coffee one day discussing who had the superior culture.
Over triple lattes the Greek guy says, "Well, we have the Parthenon".
Arching his eyebrows the Italian replies, "We have the Coliseum."
The Greek retorts, "We Greeks gave birth to advanced mathematics."
The Italian, nodding in agreement, says, "But we built the Roman Empire."
And so on and so on until the Greek comes up with what he thinks will end the discussion.
With a flourish of finality he says, "We invented sex!"
The Italian replies, "That is true, but it was the Italians who introduced it to women."
