do you know franco?

wow.  two warnings in a day.  this crazy life.  
sooooo warning, if you’re offended by fur coats you should probably not look any further.
disclaimer – i did just try on.  not buy. 
instead of just mixing in these next pictures with Firenze’s post … 
I thought I’d explain a bit.  Because a line or two just won’t do.  You’ll see…
these need an explanation.
Meet Franco.  The owner of  David 2   in Firenze.
I called out to him while he was driving his golf cart on the streets by the replica or David.
Because it said “Leather Factory” & JB wanted a new wallet.
He gave me his card, pointed to his store and said “tell them you know Franco…”
We did.  I milked knowing Franco… what?  I wanted a good price.  
The man shutdown his store and immediately took us to another location.
Franco soon arrived again and started popping bottles and turning us into models.
Franco told us he was a retired ex stud muffin. 
 Gave us his thoughts on the jersey shore – saying they’re “tacky” … I ate it up I tell ya.  
After about an hour of trying on … we bid our goodbyes.  
But he wanted a picture with me in his cart.  
I obliged!
He then took off with me in tow.
blaring Pavarotti through the streets of Florence.
in my coat made for the Alps in 80 degree weather.
JB followed on foot … worried I was being stolen. 
and many of you know this is a great fear of mine.
Since I expressed my fears, he quickly took me back.  
an anti-climatic end.
but a true story.
If you are in Firenze, head to David 2 … and tell them you know Franco.  ( ;
