Summer Changes

As I write this the Little Hatke House is full of the chaos and bustle of bags being packed and last minute arrangements being made. We are returning to Italy. We are, my heart tells me, returning home, to our little village of Gravagna Montale, after three long years away. 

We are leaving tomorrow.

We'll be staying in Gravagna for June, July and August and if you're interested in keeping an eye on us, I'm planning (well, hoping) to post a photo a day on Twitter and Facebook. I'll collect the pictures into weekly batches here on the blog. 

And while the girls are exploring mountain paths and hunting lizards in the rocks I will be drawing, drawing, drawing the pages of my next graphic novel, Mighty Jack. This book has put me up against one of the most challenging deadlines I've ever faced, but I'll be working in the same place where I drew most of the 3rd Zita book, so I'm hopeful...

And so we're off down the road again! I hope you'll follow along.

Have fun in Italy! Don't forget us stuck in the USA!

Jill said...

It's really been 3 years since you were there last? Time flies so. Hopefully it won't while you're there, so you can meet Jack's deadline! :), the Tikkuns

Wow! Wishing you fun, safe travels, wonderful adventures, and much good work!

Anna May said...

Love all the pics you and Anna post. It's about the only way me and other family members have of keeping up with your family. I know you will enjoy your time in Italy. You always do. Take care - safe travels.

ht Baofeng ini memiliki dual frekuensi untuk TRX (VHF dan UHF) dan 1 frekuensi lagi untuk FM Radio. Sementara baru saya review untuk antena bawaannya dengan frekuensi 136MHz s/d 480MHz (include FM antena yang menjadi 1) Sebelum review power output mari kita bahas untuk antena bawaannya. U-V Antenna di situlah tercantumnya. Antena yang cukup mungil dengan panjang sekitar 22cm.

Payday Loans said...

Fruitful here and now borrowers are the general population who just utilize these payday advances in crises, and dependably reimburse them in full.

Payday Loans Chicago said...

Online payday advances are precisely what it says on the tin. They are credits that you can get till next payday, and you can apply for them on the web.

Car Title Loans Chicago said...

The explanation behind this is the value you are paying for the accommodation, the speed at which you can normally get your cash, and to urge you to pay it back on time, in addition to make an income stream for the organization giving the auto title credit. said...

While some back organizations offer these, the most widely recognized place to get a payday credit from is a business that really has some expertise in brisk money advances like these.
