Mediterranean Working Vacation – Part 3

But soft, what light through yonder window breaks? It is the security lamp. That sneak Romeo has set off the motion detector.

This is the house of Juliet in Verona, Italy. Whether or not she was a real person I don’t claim to know and doesn’t matter to the lovers who papered the wall at right with messages. It’s a bed and breakfast now.

A German fan who came to our show last night told us, “Delta Moon has a talent for playing in beautiful places.” Verona certainly qualifies. We played a marvelous venue in a 14th Century cellar with arches supported by marble stones filched from the Roman arena across the way.

Last night I dedicated a song to the lovers of Verona. The choice of Muddy Waters’ “The Same Thing” may have been a little earthy, but I think Shakespeare would have approved:

Why do the men go crazy
When a woman wears her dress so tight?
Must be that same old thing
Makes a tomcat fight all night.
