Festa a Casa di Fulvio e Virginia - 19 Marzo

Questo mese, I coniugi De Laval hanno ospitato club fior d'Italia per una bella riunione e cena. Per l'occasione Fulvio avava decorato il salotto con bandiere e mappe Italiane. Abbiamo ricordato San Giuseppe che proprio si festeggia il 19 marzo, e drindato Saint Patrick (vedi l'angolo umoristico).
Il piccolo gruppo ci ha permesso di scambiare idee personali e collettive non spesso espresse durante le riunioni piu’ affollate. E' da dire anche che dio Bacco ci ha fatto sciogliere la lingua ben presto.
Come sempre le pietanze hanno non solo soddisfatto tutti i palati dal punto di vista gastronomico, ma c'era un’abbondanza particolare, e, dato che certe golose non hanno potuto partecipare, i cannoli provvisti da Olga sono bastati. Fulvio ha cantato alcune sue canzoni predilette.

Grazie Fulvio e Virginia; la vostra ospitalità e fervore per il nostro club e' gradita da tutti.

Gale has Done it Again

It's Another Show & Gale McNeeley has transmigrated again with "Archy, the poetic cockroach" and "Mehitabel, the toujours gai alley cat" . Gale becomes Archy, the literate little cockroach and Mehitabel, the morally careless cat. they were first given life in 1916 by the writer Don Marquis. Their wit and wisdom have been entertaining audiences ever since. They were the subjects of a 1950's musical and a 1990's cartoon. Gale brings them to life again, in words and music. "This is adult fare with an innocent heart."
The performance is Sunday, March 26th and April 30th at 7 PM at Linnaea's Cafe in San Luis Obispo, 1100 Garden St. (between Higuera and Marsh)
The Suggested Donation is $10.


L'angolo Umoristico

Father O'Mally
An Irish priest is driving down to New York and is stopped for erratic driving in Connecticut. The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an open wine bottle on the floor of the car. He says, "Sir, have you been drinking?" "Just water," says the priest. The trooper says, "Then why do I smell wine?" The priest looks at the bottle and says, "Good Lord! He's done it again!"
