More about Pino Lella and “Beneath a Scarlet Sky:” Pino is currently living in Italy and his eldest son, Mike, is my neighbor. I went over to Mike’s house and knocked. Mike was on the phone but answered the door. He was talking to his Dad and then gave me the phone after I said I’d just finished the book. So, I got to speak directly to Pino! What a treat!!!
My cough is causing more trouble for my voice than the swollen throat did. I sound raspy. At rehearsal yesterday, I was sort of ok. Could not reach the high, high notes. Will be glad when all is healed. Special rehearsal tomorrow…we’ll see how I do then. I think I’m going to try no more speaking for today and hot water with honey.
Had a fun lunch with several of my friends from our now defunct Weight Watchers group today. Ate on the outside deck at Priest Station Café. Great weather, great friends…what more could you want!?!
