Friday Cat Photos: Agriturismo Kittens

Cats of Villa Saulina: 1998-11-07

The afternoon of our arrival near Florence on November 7, 1998, this farm kitten has checked out Vicki, the cat magnet, and decided she is welcome.

We’re on our second visit to Italy.  This time, we’re having our first look at Tuscany, the place of Vicki’s dream of herself in a peasant blouse, blue feet, a glass of wine in one hand, a plate of pasta in the other.  She has dreamed of Italy since she was a child.  Now, she’s here to connect dream and reality.

We flew into Pisa, spending two nights there before picking up our rental car and driving to Villa Saulina, an agriturismo –- farm with tourist accommodations –- outside of Florence.   After visiting Florence, Siena, Lucca, Volterra, and many villages and sites of the area, we returned to Pisa for two more nights and our return to Silicon Valley.

I applied for a special retirement-incentive package in May 1998 and my retirement date has been set for December.  We are here determining whether we are prepared to move to Italy for the next stage of our life.  The answer is yes.
