We were at a kids' concert in the park yesterday; the singer started taking requests from children in the audience. Nearly all of the kids requested songs from his CDs, but one little girl asked for "a song about a butterfly." Stumped, he turned to the audience and asked if anybody knew a song about a butterfly. Chico (6) instantly burst into "Non più andrai, farfallone amoroso..." from Le nozze di Figaro. Frenchie and I hooted!

Hope everyone is having a great summer; it has been so cool here that my garden is sulking (and so am I).
