Real Estate Ray's Blog: Soup and the First Selfies

Soup and the First Selfies

      Jack and I were walking through the streets of Rome without thinking about soup at all, then we saw this.

Soup of the Day

     No way we could pass that up.  We even had seconds and seriously contemplated thirds!  Tasty!

     After the soup, we made a very surprising discovery.  Ancient Rome was the birthplace of the selfie!  Here is the first and second ever selfies captured in action by fast working sculptors.

                      The first selfie                       The second selfie

     I always knew the Romans were ahead of their time, but wow!  What a country! 

     Now you know why Mary Margaret is always looking for Adult Day Care for me and why she rolls her eyes A LOT.  

Daddy Day Care

     A little humor and some uplifting music: Cantaloop (US3 and Flip Fantasia), Happy (Pharrell), Mr. Pinstripe (Big Bad Voodoo Daddy) and the best, Smooth (Santana and Rob Thomas) made my day.  Pharrell even inspired me to run three miles today.

Two questions:

  1. Are you rolling your eyes or did I get a little chuckle?
  2.  What music gets you moving?  I need more music in my life!

Raymond,

I enjoyed your post.  Love the uplifting tone of it.  We both love Italy, we have been there many times, and Rome is an amazing city.  A

Barbara Todaro, thank you.  I needed a few chuckles yesterday, for sure.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel and Rome has the best soup ever!  

I appreciate the input from both of you.

You brought out a chuckle from me, and I like how you made the connection to the selfie with the sculptures.

Mary Margaret says I see the wold from a little different angle, Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543.  Maybe, but it can be fun.  Glad to get a chuckle.

Hello Raymond - some fond memories.  And memories remain an easy visit.  No lines through TSA either.

Good morning Raymond Henson, SRES, GRI ,

I'm glad I caught this when Barbara Todaro re-blogged! Yes you brought about a chuckle on this wet, cold dreary day in Austin! I've been to Italy many times and love the culture, sights, sounds, history, people and food!

Michael Jacobs, I am lucky that we took so many pictures.  My memory is not what it used to be.

Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR, It is wet a dreary here today too.  I love Italy too, though we have only been there one time.  We have at trip set for July to Italy and Croatia.  We are keeping are fingers crossed!

Will Hamm, glad you enjoyed it!  Please enjoy your days as well.

Hi Raymond,  Thanks for sharing a great laugh.  I haven't had any soup like that in a long time.

That bottle cap is funny and reminds me of a story.  When I was in college a bottle cap that I pulled off a soda said "You are a winner" on it but there was no information on the bottle about a contest or what I might have won.  From that point on though I knew I was a winner!

Posted by Brian England, MBA, GRI, REALTOR® Real Estate in East Valley AZ (Arizona Focus Realty) 2 months ago

Kathy Streib  Yesterday was rainy.  Today will be rainy and I love it.  I hope you are enjoying the sunshine today and find some more things to chuckl about.

Hi Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS,  thank you for the award.   I am honored.  And you are welcome for the follow.  I look forward to hearing what you have to share.

Bob Crane,  if I had a restaurant, it would be a special every day.  Lol.

This was delightful Raymond Henson, SRES, GRI - I'm so happy Barbara Todaro shared it today, I might have missed it. The home of the selfie - who knew? Lol, lol, lol.

Brian England  you are definitely a winner!  Funny story.  I am surprised more companies don't put pithy sayings on more caps.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD, glad you enjoyed it.  I am not sure what that angel is really doing, but the instant I saw it, I thought selfie.

Raymond, what great photos, and love them!   Beer as a soup, HMMM, not sure I would partake.   Music has been helpful in lifting our moods!

Thanks for sharing your photographs. I could use some of that soup of the day for lunch.

Take care and have a great day.

I should have asked for the recipe when I was there.  Even if you do not get that soup of the day, I hope you have a wonderful day, Roy Kelley.
