Thanks, Dominic, for the phone call - but you are way off track! It's nothing to do with their birth dates...

ksam said...

Ok, Dominic obviously went for the first thing I thought of too...and since Elizabeth Taylor is in there, that throws out the next obvious. A lotta Krauts, but I don't think that's it...sooo. Dunno...How long will we twist in the wind??

No idea - all vegetarians; all red-haired; all cat lovers???

Glad to hear from Dominic that you are all well.

They all read or performed in open theatre in the round?

The Solitary Walker said...

Vegetarian, red-haired cat lovers? I think you're thinking of someone else closer to home, Pat...

Bonnie - you're on the right lines, as you've identified the pics as relevant... mmm ... where is that amphitheatre, I wonder..?

ksam said...

Ahhh light bulb moment, Sicily?

The Solitary Walker said...

But you have to more exact than that, Karin...

ksam said...

Ok...Taormina? Unlike so many others, right now I have no life and lotsa time to snoop on line!! Thanks for a reason to do so! Grazie!

I have no idea but they certainly would make a great group for a dinner party.

The Solitary Walker said...

Yes, they all had a passion for Taormina in Sicily...

Gosh, gleaner, a dinner party with that lot? Mmm... Interesting to say the least! I'm now trying to work out the most harmonious seating plan...
