Suddenly, as if by magic, the shopkeeper appeared

I'm back!

Sorry about that, I had to go dark for a couple of weeks. Well, actually, I went to Italy. With my family, for a holiday, and it was fantastic. One of the best things about it was that we were totally out of touch - staying in a castle up a remote track in a wooded valley in the middle of nowhere, no phone, no tv, no internet; bliss! We only left the castle to go shopping, and we made two trips, one to a lakeside town for dinner, and the other to Assisi to a-see-see St Francis's old stomping grounds. Which was nice.

This is the castle

and this was our part of it.

So, anyway, I thought I'd better let you know that we're ok, not eaten by wolves, or drowned in the bath or anything.

Bonus points for anyone who can identify the quote in the title.
