Once upon a time in Texas, there was a girl with an appetite and a dream...


An Unexpected Gift

Just look at what some thoughtful person left for me in my parked car! See that black bag in the back seat? Can you guess what's inside?

Money? Loose diamonds? Gift certificates for the day spa? Rare and collectable wine?

WRONGWRONGWRONG...it's full of trash. Nice, smelly trash with lots of onions.

I guess the dumpster was just too far away.

Grazie, stronzo :)

Hey Tracie.

Maybe the crazy taxi driver left that for you. Jack-ass. And so weird. So sorry about how you're being treated over there. :(

Maybe you need to take a break and get away from Ischia for a while....Go home and visit your family in Texas, as Sicilian suggested. :)

Even people who live in "paradise" need vacations. Haha.

Wow, how rude! Is that supposed to be some kind of joke? If so, it's really bad.

Well, you have to look on the bright side...at least the trash was INSIDE the bag that was inside your car. :) You're having a run of bad luck! I think you're just doing this so we won't envy you.

Hey, that must have been the same guy who poured the remains of his coca cola into Carlo's bike helmet!

Well, at least the bag colour-matched the car upholstery!

again I say, WTF? why would someone put trash in a jeep? Take a deep breath, summer is almost over and the annoying crowds will be gone soon.

Now I must go to the gym and make sure not to wake up our local homeless man who likes to dig through our dumpster and leave garbage on top of the dumpster. Our previous owner thought about getting a lock for our dumpter. The buidling next door did that and the homeless lit it and one of the cars on fire.

Have a nice day.

I cannot believe how lazy people are? Leaving a bag filled with garbage really takes the cake! A few weeks ago I left my sunroof open and someone deposited some lovely gum wrappers and such in the front seat of my car...

I guess no matter where you reside, there are always rude people around.

Everyone who said for Tracie to come home for a break has my approval. Sounds like a good way for me to see my baby girl again.

P.S. I hope nobody catches on to the money I keep sending those crazy Eyetalians to harass my daughter into coming home.

Just kidding honey. You hang in there. Sometimes you just gotta laugh at other peoples rudeness. You just be the young lady you are and were raised to be. We love you, yore Pappy oer hur in these har unitee stayts of merica.

i know it would be SUPER gross, but i would be tempted to go through the trash to find a name...then you could return the trash, and more. haha

My first thought was "that taxi driver is a real jerk!"

Ugh, I'm sorry that happened to you. :-( I hope your car doesn't smell!

What an a** (the guy who left it NOT you)! Just when I was going to tell you (again) of how jealous I am of you, you go and post something like this. Well, I don't live on an island with beautiful sun sets BUT I have never found trash in my car. Fair trade off? I don't think so!! I'll take the island WITH or without car trash. heheheheh!

Must be the same person who can't tell that my bicycle basket is NOT a trash can!
