"Te presento a nuestra tía abuela Fanny...solterona" aclara mi primo Giancarlo al mandarme esta foto y añade: "Fue una bella mujer para su época...elegante, fina, íper culta...re hinchabolas."

Después me cuenta mi padre que nuestra prócer solía frecuentar la crème romana. QUÉ CRÈME le pregunto yo. "Y...la tía Fanny y todos sus príncipes" contesta él riendose "leyendo y bailando." Cómo no me llegaron tus ojos claros tía...suerte que tu espíritu sí.

Meet my Great-Aunt Fanny, an old maid as my cousin Giancarlo pointed out upon sending me her portrait, adding: "She was a beautiful woman in her time...elegant, refined...a total ballbuster."

My dad describes her as an intellectual fashion queen, dallying in Roman high society. WHAT HIGH SOCIETY I want to know. "Oh...Aunt Fanny and all her princes," he replies laughing "always reading and dancing." Why did your blue eyes not reach me Aunt F...thankfully your spirit did.

Questa è la mia prozia Fanny, napoletana e zitella secondo mio cugino Giancarlo che tanto gentilmente mi ha mandato il suo ritratto. "Era una bella donna per la sua epoca...coltissima, elegante, una rompicoglioni," chiarisce poi.

Aggiunge mio padre che la nostra antenata frequentava l'alta società romana. "Cioè??" voglio sapere io. "Eh...la zia Fanny e tutti i suoi principi," mi risponde ridendo. "Sempre a leggere e a ballare." Com'è che non mi sono arrivati i tuoi occhi chiari zia? Fortuna che il tuo spirito si.

follow as in my content is all over the place (which it is, i have never been organized with my pastimes) and it's impossible to understand, or follow as in the "blogs i follow" blogspot gadget? i can only help you with the second option, i can't even help myself with the other one.
ah, y tiene usted una tia abuela preciosa.
