I'm afraid so! We've REALLY settled in to the Sicilian way-of-life which means Larry's been lazy with keeping up with the blog posts here..sorry! We're PLENTY busy and we have only two more months here before we leave to start the CycleItalia tour season, though it looks like we'll be back next year for Heather's study-abroad program. Meanwhile, she's making new contacts, Larry's trying to improve his "ebonics" Italian language skills and we're enjoying pedala forte, mangia bene as you can see in this photo of a little climb Larry discovered with the help of some local guys who dragged him out here a few weeks ago. It's one of those roads that's NOT on the map! In many ways we're already looking forward to next winter.
