The Flight Crew delegation from Minnesota got together again for another day of IL VOLO love and admiration! Spring has sprung in the north land and we decided it was high time to have some more fun with fellow IL VOLO lovers. We also had a new member, Audrey, to welcome into the group. Once again Dorothy made the trek from Florida to join us. Joyce hosted us in her lovely home.
We indulged ourselves on delicious snacks of Italian Dove Bread, Antipasto tray, Olive Tampenade spread and Garlic spread on crackers and garlic bread sticks with marinara, while sipping on Italian wine.
Joyce had an IL VOLO slide show (with an emphasis on Piero, much to Allene and Mary’s delight) that constantly played on her big screen TV with the Grande Amore CD accompanying it. It was like being in IL VOLO heaven! We all marveled at how we could continue watching it over and over and not get tired of it. Can you imagine?? We played a game of CAPTION THAT PICTURE which always provides many laughs and new takes on familiar photos of the guys we have all seen and dearly love. Mary had translated each song from Grande Amore into English. We then had to read specific phrases of a song in English and decide which Italian song it came from. This proved to be a challenge for many (me) and we were allowed to cheat and confer with each other in order to make it through the game. Mary passed around a bottle of Piero’s own favorite scent…Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male cologne…for each of us to sample and enjoy for the rest of the day. And boy did it smell good in that house after that went around the room! If you closed your eyes you could surely imagine a certain someone standing right there! Joyce gave us each refrigerator magnets with favorite photos of the guys to take home and decorate our houses with. Now if only they could come out with a wallpaper of the guys I’m sure we’d each have a room we would find to put it in! We ate at Carbone’s for lunch and spent the rest of the day enjoying each other’s company.
Once again, IL VOLO brings love and joy into each and every life of those who know and admire them so.
We are all hoping there will be a IL VOLO Fan Faire in Las Vegas someday so we may ALL meet and share our love of these wonderful guys.
IL VOLO LOVE,
