BOIN ~ Out on a Limb

Poor little guys sitting on the limb of a tree. They seem to be lost! Do you think they need directions?Color illustration of three gray birds on a limb
I understand they want to teach us some good values like:
Don’t listen to gossip!
Don’t close your eyes to the truth!
Don’t speak ill of anyone!
But their biggest problem is they can’t Hear the traffic! They can’t See the roadway! And they need to Speak up if they want directions!
They’ll be better off if they Listen to the directions! See the road signs! And Speak to someone at the next service station!
You’re not really lost, no one is ever lost if they FOLLOW @boincollection

BOIN ~ Are you BOIN? by Susan

By now, if you held on, I guess you are BOIN!
But before we answer the question, let’s take a look at some characters we met this week.

We met DUMBO in a box of Popcorn! Movie night! And the question, “what movie are you watching this evening?”
That was a little hard to answer because I have more than one favorite. So, I chose, “Casablanca.” I found out many of you like this movie! What’s not to like! “Here’s looking at you kid!”
Or if you’re really romantic, how about “Love is a Many Splendid Thing!”  Okay so I lost half of my audience! Let’s move on!

Next, we met a Chef who was carrying a bowl of Pasta Pomodoro. My first thought was, Piero must be close by but, this is not a story about Il Volo, this is about BOIN. So, perhaps Ignazio and Fabio got hungry and, they went to one of Ignazio’s favorite restaurants, Ristorante Donatello for some Pasta!

And what better way to end a meal then with their favorite, a delicious, Ice Cream pop dripping in Chocolate!
At this point we could all use an Ice Cream pop and a little bit of summer!

So, finally, we meet an alien from BOIN! I kind of thought there might be some aliens in the story but, this is a new part of the story so, we have to wait and see who the other aliens are!
In my story, I suggested it was a King because he wore a crown but, it’s been suggested to me that it may be a Queen! So much to learn, so little time to learn it! Only time will tell!
Now, let’s go back to my original question, “Are you BOIN?” I know you are BOIN and, I am BOIN because we’re still here but are all the characters BOIN?
In order to answer the question, we need to meet some of the other BOIN characters.

For instance, what about the little guy by the campfire holding a beer? Who is he? Is he BOIN? Is he actually on BOIN? Is he on earth? Is he waiting for a spaceship from BOIN? Or is he on BOIN waiting for the next adventure? He’s been sitting there since day one and we have no idea who he is!
You can’t tell me you didn’t wonder about this little guy! How does he fit into the story?
So, it’s obvious there is so much more for us to learn! Perhaps we should join the little guy by the campfire and share a beer with him while we wait for the next adventure.

BOIN ~ Who are we Waiting for? by Susan

Who are we waiting for? That’s a pretty simple question! Let’s see if we can figure it out!

We had a bunch of real cute Superhero’s this week! I just knew, after seeing BATBOIN last week more Superhero’s were going to follow.

I knew this little SUPERBOIN would be coming but I didn’t expect him so soon! I’m really loving these Superhero’s! They fit right into the alternate universe of BOIN!

The Black and White SPIDERBOIN was a little scary if you don’t like spiders! But when SPIDERBOIN showed up in color, that changed everything!

He’s a cutie! Is he the Itsy-Bitsy spider? Not sure but he can hang around as long as he likes. But wait! Is SPIDERBOIN Gianluca’s counterpart in this universe of BOIN? It certainly works! If he is Gianluca’s counterpart, someone else should be showing up soon!

The question of the day! Who’s your favorite? I know mine but I’m not telling! It seems SPIDERBOIN won this round. Everyone thought SPIDERBOIN was Gianluca’s counterpart in the alternate universe of BOIN. If they’re right, I expect someone else should be showing up soon!

Well, isn’t he a HOOT! He seems a little shocked! What do you think he’s looking at? Or maybe what is he looking for? Maybe he’s thinking someone is missing?

I heard a rumor that Miss Daisy is following these Superhero’s and she seems to think this story needs some Super Ladies for these cute Superheros! I agree!

But what was it the fans thought was missing this week! What did the fans talk about this week? Simple if we have SPIDERBOIN as Gianluca’s counterpart, shouldn’t we give equal time to Piero. To me Piero’s already a Superhero.
So, is SPIDERBOIN Gianluca’s counterpart?
What about it guys? Let’s get everyone involved and don’t forget Miss Daisy thinks we need some Super Ladies. After all guys where would the world be without all those beautiful Ladies!   Where would you guys be without your beautiful ladies?
To find out if Piero will become a Superhero and if there will be some Super Ladies, FOLLOW @boincollection

 

BOIN ~ It’s all about the Taste! by Susan

So, what’s been going on this week?  We started the week with an old friend, Miss Daisy! She was out there promoting Women’s Day! And what a good job she did!

Dressed in very tasteful black and white business suit and sporting that beautiful black petal necklace, she stood proudly in honor of women all over the world. Thank you, Miss Daisy!
Well, what do you know, the little Panda returned to share a post with Pizza!  Oh my! Are you still asleep in the sushi! You got to get up sometime! Perhaps to eat some Pizza!

Food, glorious food! Pizza, Sushi and Bacon and Eggs!
And the question from the guys, “What do you prefer? Pizza or Sushi!” You know how that turned out. Always pizza!

I think the idea was to guess who would eat what! But that’s a no-brainer! Choosing between pizza and sushi, no choice necessary! That works for Fabio and Ignazio (provided the sushi is vegan).
The bacon and eggs is another story!

Fabio are you missing the United States? Don’t worry you’ll be back soon!
Or was the skeleton Ignazio’s way of saying Taboo! We know Ignazio wouldn’t go near the bacon and eggs!  Regardless, in the end, the Pizza won out!
So, let’s change tracks for a moment! Did you see that cute little fish in the light bulb? Could he be a relative of Nemo?
In the black and white picture, I said, “Home is where the heart is so FOLLOW @boincollection” And, what do you know, this little guy arrived at BOIN just in time to hear Ignazio’s voice in the distance singing the theme from Màkari.

Suddenly, everything lit up and he found himself in the middle of a, beautiful, aqua sea. So, he followed the voice until he came to Màkari. And what do you know, there he was, Ignazio strumming his guitar and singing his beautiful song! At last, the little fishy was home!Color illustration of light bulb with an orange fish insideIf you missed Ignazio singing, tune in, Monday, March 15th on Rai1 21.25 (Italy) to see the premier of Màkari and of course to here our guys sing the beautiful theme song, “Màkari,” which was written by Ignazio.
If you don’t have Italian cable, don’t worry, look for me on Tuesday, I’ll be back with this beautiful song!
So, the BOIN posts are going on nearly two months now, and finally, they stumped me!

Color illustration of three ghosts - red, aqua and lavender

I have to admit guys, I looked at the three little ghosts and, NOTHING!
It takes a lot to leave me speechless but bravo, Fabio and Ignazio, you did it!
Are those little ghosts, BOIN Crew or just some friends who dropped by? We have to wait to see where this goes.
So, we close out the week with a little Angel Fish and a Devil Fish. It seems the Devil Fish shocked the Angel Fish! My question was “Look at you, you cute little Angel! What did that Devil say to you?”

So, I close the week with the question, “What do you think the little Devil said to the little Angel?
Enjoy your weekend! I’ll be back on Tuesday with the Màkari theme!
Till Tuesday, FOLLOW @boincollection
