Default It's a small world

Hum along with me.

I receive a very nice email from a family that built a Pompeii Oven in Walnut Creek, CA. They are having a great time and the oven has helped bringing their family together -- they have teenages, etc., and they are Italian-American, so it is giving the new generation a link back to their family in Italy (grandparents are still here). Very good.

Anyway, the small world part is that they hosted an event yesterday, and ended up inviting my brother and his family, who live in the east bay. He started telling my brother about the oven and how he built it, and my brother basically says, yes -- I know the crazy guy who started Forno Bravo.

That is definitely an it's a small-world story.
James

You do mean the Split Enz version right?

It's a small world, and you must agree
It's not a very big house, for a large family
People moving out or making home improvements
but the basic problem never seems to go away
It's a small world

There are definitely different ways of looking at the story. Happily, I get along well with my brother.
Thanks for the insight Patrick.

I lived in West Pittsburg (AKA Dodge City) but went to Walnut Creek every week to "cruise the strip".
