Well, I think I am a bit late, actually. But the Vespa, that emblem of Italian life, is 60 this month so I have bought myself an ornament in its honour.

Simi the dog hates the things, by the way; life for her is a game of "spot the motorini" on our walks and she barks at most of those she sees. I have tried explaining to her that she will get a very sore doggie throat indeed if she keeps barking at motorbikes in Italy, but she won't give up! She does occasionally demur now, though, supposedly considering some models unworthy of her attention, so she is not lunging at every one of the things as she did when we first arrived!
