Ferragosto 2007

A couple of years ago, we were actually part of the festival. It was a ton of fun, but the timing sucked last year and things just never came together. But being a spectator can be just as much fun - and you get to leave whenever you want to. So, I'm planning on heading down there on the 18th, and think it would be great if the rest of the family (and non-family members) headed down there too. Here's the details :

Italian Car Show ~ Ferragosto 2007
When the word ‘Italian’ comes to mind, it may bring thoughts of beautiful women and fast cars, among other things. The Italians are known for their fashion and style and on August 18th there will be an opportunity for everyone to get a good glimpse at fast, stylish, Italian cars.
Join us for Ferragosto 2007 ! The Free festival will open Saturday, August 18th at 11:00 am and will be held at 300 South 450 West, Rio Grande Street across from the Pioneer Park and the Rio Grande Depot.
Enjoy the creativity and elegance of Italian designed automobiles, listen to live entertainment and taste savory dishes that are uniquely Italian. Bring the whole family to this free cultural street fair.
The Italian Festival is looking for Italian cars to share, contact Ronan Glon 801-815-9218 or alfa.105@hotmail.com

So I hope to see you all down there and if you are interested in going with me let me know. I'll probably park the car at the "U" and take Trax down there.

Hmmm... Actually, it sounds good. I used to go to lots of classic car shows a few years back. (I like LOOKING at cars; I just don't know anything about them.)
I have a dance performance at the Peace Gardens at 1:00. Maybe I'll call you later that afternoon and see if you want to meet and show me all your favorite cars.

Sounds like a plan to me - I should have my phone on me - unless some 9 year old steals it...

I just programmed your number into my cell phone.
Today in a catalogue, I saw a tee-shirt that made me think of you:
If I want to hear "the pitter-patter of little feet," I'll put shoes on my cat.

Then there was one I wanted to buy, but I'd probably get in trouble for wearing it to school because some idiot parent would think it was dirty:
Your participle is dangling.

Maybe I should just buy one of the ones that say:
Don't make me get my flying monkeys.

Writer, my response is on your blog, I kinda like this method of comfusing the masses......

Well, my aunt has been reading your comments and following them up to your blog -- at least sometimes. She commented about you today, but she had you mixed up with Chris (former student, remember him? Long hair.).

Hmmm, me confused with Chris? That's kind of complimentary, in a weird way.
