Long overdue greetings from Lakewood, CO

Recommended Posts

Hello to all of my friends and Trainzing family at TZIT!


A long overdue hello and a heaping helping of “howdy ho!”  🤠 from Lakewood!


As a famous Roman author once stated:


Arma virumque cano, Troiae qui primus ab oris  

Italiam, fato profugus, Laviniaque venit

litora, multum ille et terris iactatus et alto

vi superum saevae memorem Iunonis ob iram;


inferretque deos Latio, genus unde Latinum,

multa quoque et bello passus, dum conderet urbem,

Albanique patres, atque altae moenia Romae.

Musa, mihi causas memora, quo numine laeso,

quidve dolens, reina deum tot volvere casus

insignem pietate virum, tot adire labores

impulerit. Tantaene animis caelestibus irae?


Hopefully that makes some sense: there are few places I know where quoting Vergil as I have here would resonate at all.


What heaven’s sent wrath have we incurred, o Iupiter on high?


I mean no disrespect: I honor all that is divine, Italian and Roman!


I think of all of my friends here frequently: every time anything that is so wonderfully, thoroughly and beautifully Italian enters into mind.


As a New Yorker living in Colorado I seek such images, icons, art and music both consciously and unconsciously all the time. I love Colorado: it is where my daughters have become fine, talented and creative young ladies. Still I miss NYC and all that that city offers culturally — and so much Italian and Italian American “mana from heaven!” (Please pardon the mixing of European and Polynesian elements there: I couldn’t quickly/briefly come up with a better fit)


Stay well, be strong and safe and never relent from the pursuit of dreams — Trainzing and all the rest which are our hearts’ content and that which keeps us forever young!

Ciao, cheers and best regards!


Your friend in Lakewood

Hello Good Friends! :ciao:


Today my oldest daughter turns 21!  

Today is a great day for celebrating her and all of life and living! :festa:


Here is a swinging, singing Moon and June song that expresses my joy!  :classic_biggrin:




Just a cartoon from the mid 1930's I Love To Singa  :vinco:


Hope you all have a great rest of your Sunday!


Ciao, Cheers and Best Regards

Getting ready to have some good Mexcian food* and margaritas! 🌮🌯🥑🍹


June in Colorado with dear family! :vinco:


I will let her know to look ahead and that the best of life is still to come and I will pass along the train of wishes from Das Karognenführer -- who else here could do so with such passion, conviction and aplomb!  


As a few here might be able to guess from getting know me over the years 😒😬😜 , she is far more serene than I will ever be, so she has that already going for her! 🙏


Thank you both! 🙏 🖖



* technically Tex Mex 🇺🇸 🇲🇽 for the rivet counters and the bean counters! 🃏 🙃
