Christian Di Mauro's 27th Birthday Party


Saturday was a great day, 90˚F+,  to be invited to the Di Mauro household for a pool party to celebrate Christian's 27th birthday! 

Gifts

In Italy, a clothing house has been selling all sorts of apparel with "Franklin and Marshall University" written on it.  Denver has had enough of this Division III, Pennsylvania college stealing all the thunder and decided to hand out Wabash College clothing to those assembled to get his school into the forefront of Italian haute couture.

O.K., maybe in the process of packing he decided to leave some things behind to make way for his new found treasures, maybe.

This is going to take some work.

Why isn't Claudio controlling this madcap?

Steve Gama, call my cell phone please.

Claudio, seen here with Christian, has decided to give up and join the natives! 

Paul yelled "Panini" and suddenly I was surrounded!

A 1962 Fiat 500

Christian's family owns two of these Italian Classics, both white.  He gave me the chance to finally try one on for size!

Safety FIRST!

I'm going in, cover me!

Just as I thought, plenty of head room!

Sharing my moment with Claudio!

Lots of leg room too!

Getting out wasn't so easy.

The 1962 Fiat 500 fits Laurie like a glove!

For me it was a little more like an adventure.

I told you those sexy sunglasses
would pay off!

WHAT A GREAT TIME
WE ALL HAD!!!
