What a wonderful story, beautifully written. I love the idea of the Mussolini’s tombs.

Wonderful story Dad! Thanks for sharing that beautiful memory.

Excellent story!! Again, I marvel at how alike our families are. It wasn't a cherry tree in our back yard, but a Italian plum tree.. and just like you, we (my sisters, my dad and I) all looked forward to picking and eating them right under the tree.

The tree died for some unknown reason when I was around 16 years old. That was a sad ending to that summer, but I'm thankful for the memories of previous years - and for your story, which brought it all back again!


I love that you are including so many memories in your cookbook~ our WhistleStop cookbook is the same type of thing.
Beautifully written.

what a lovely image of raining cherries. Thanks for bringing a smile out on Monday morning.
