We Are Thankful!

Today is Thursday,  November 22.  A day we celebrate in the United States as Thanksgiving.  This holiday is supposed to be set aside to be thankful for the things we have and to celebrate the first meal of peace with the Indians and Pilgrims.  Ok, so maybe the original meaning has been lost, and replaced with a 4-day weekend for many working folks, sales of the year and Black Friday, etc.  However, let’s remember how thankful we are for our guys and the “thanks for giving” that they bring us each day!

(it’s not perfect, but I beg artistic license! 🙂 )

Grazie Mille, Il Volo….

We are thankful for Il Volo

If only they’d go solo

To hear their glorious sound

Accolades would abound

We are thankful for our guys

Still so young, yet aptly wise

Sharing their wit and wisdom

To all who will listen

We are thankful for Gianluca

And his mama, Leonora

He reigns from Abruzzo

On top of Montepagano


We are thankful for Piero

Our Sicilian prince of Naro

He sings arias with ease

Oh, sing to me, pretty please?


We are thankful for Ignazio

Our adorably dimpled Romeo

His razzle-dazzle we treasure

He gives us so much pleasure

We are thankful for this site

We can read it day or night

We love our loyal followers

Our faithful Ilvololovers!


So, let us remember what brought us all together, all of the friends we’ve made, and met on this site, and the new ones yet to come – all because of these 3 happy little faces.  Happy Thanksgiving a tutti!

Wishing everyone on this site and all friends and family a wonderful, safe, and happy Thanksgiving day.  I hope you find all of the deals you are looking for!  🙂  Take care – hope to see everyone soon at their next concert!  Whenever and wherever that may be!

A special shout-out to Marie, who is now in South Carolina!  🙂

    Jana, beautiful poetry, congratulations, and then, you managed to comment, even Marie, is a great event!

  8. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I have not commented here for a long time, but I read all the entries. This site has been superb ever since its beginning. Jana, Daniela, & everyone else who is the ongoing administration of the Flight Crew site are doing a wonderful job. I enjoy reading everything here! Hi Marie! So nice to hear from you. Written any IL VOLO poetry lately? Jana is good, but you are the reigning queen of the verses! I am eagerly awaiting the announcement of the 2019 tour schedule, as I am sure we all are. Please post it here as soon as you know anything. This is my “go-to” place for all IL VOLO news.

  9. I am so thankful for all of the articles, pictures, translations and efforts of everyone involved in this site. So much of my life has been and continues to be reading posts on the computer and going to medical appointments to encourage the healing of a broken right knee cap. Thank you for adding this pleasure to my days. I hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
