Lumingnano Part the first

I went for a short hike this weekend with some friends of mine.  We hiked from JoAnne's house (JoAnne is the blonde in the picture) to Lumignano where there was a pea festival going on.  The hike was through cherry orchards and vineyards.  I know, I know.  The hard life I live.

While we were picking cherries, Mario came by on his tractor to give us a hard time.  I forgot to take a picture of Mario.  Picture an old man with white hair wearing a blue jumpsuit on an old tractor.  You can picture it?  Good.  

Anyway, as we were stuffing our mouths full of cherries Mario said in Italian, "You know we just sprayed poison on those yesterday.  I hope you don't die tonight."  

Oh, Mario.  Such a jokester.  Way to almost witness me go through a heart attack.  
He rides his tractor up and down this path a lot.

Only a few of the cherries were ripe.  In two weeks when they are at their peak, I'm going to Castegnaro for their sagra of the cherries.


  1. Fresh cherries! It sounds like you had a good time, Nik. I'd probably about have a heart attack with a joke like that too. LOL

  2. A hike, cherries, friends... Sounds like a perfect day! You'll have to take pictures at Castegnaro.


You are a lovely person.
