An Update From Rome!

Posted on Updated on

Happy Tuesday!  From what I gather, our amazing and talented friend Jay had a fabulous time in Rome.   By the looks of it, he is going to return to NYC in the form of Nutella and espresso gelato!  It sounds like it has been his main meal, washed down with lots of extra strong grape juice!  My secret agents sent me some stunning shots that I have to share with everyone…

Gelato…Jay’s new best friend!
Look at that view!


We know he is having fun, when we see a little grin!
OMG…I have no words! (And that never happens!)

I was told that Jay spent the rest of his time in Rome, at the Vatican.  He even had  brunch with the Pope.  Of course, that is why my secret agents could not take any photos!  Stay tuned for more of our Author Man’s exciting travel updates, from Italy!

      With that much gelato in one cone, wonder how many cones he had. How much weight does that equate to?

    What…grape juice? Not real Vino? I think that guy is having too much fun anyway. And to think he did not invite any of us along. Okay, so we get the pictures. I hope the Vatican absolved him of all these faux pas…. just saying.

    He can’t fool me. I know what he’s up to. He’s in Rome researching the local for his next book. How much do you want to make a bet!? The gelato is just a ruse! 😉

    Yep, the cat has been caught. The spies have been apprehended. It’s a rainy morning here in Ravello, so I had some time to get online. I’m only using WiFi on my laptop when I’m hanging around in the hotel, trying to conserve my phone battery for pictures. I’ve taken a bunch, just only sent a few each day. 🙂 W has a lot, too. He’s tagging me on Facebook all over the place. I have so many red notifications, it’s not funny! I’ll need a year to catch up for a 21 day trip. 🙂

    Thank you to Roda for these amazing blog posts. I love them, and as much as she will be ‘punished’ next month when their is role reversal… perhaps I secretly enjoy my morning surprises when I see what she’s done.

    Miss you all. Will respond when I return! 🙂

      There will always be more spies! I am magical! Plus, it sounds like you need someone watching your gelato intake! 😉
