Aw, I was just gonna start one for Florence! (A for Arno, B for Barghello...) But Tuscany should be easier.

First, G HAS to be for GELATO!

I is tough -- Italy? Informazione?

Marilyn, you think "I" is tough? What about "J" for Pete's sake?? I don't think there's even a "J" in the Italian alphabet.

I know, Betsy! I was so stumped by J I went and looked in the index of my Tuscany guidebooks -- not much!

How about J for Jesuits?

Well, every time I get to go to Tuscany, I Jump up and down for joy.
My Jealousy of those there overwhelms me.
I Jay walk all over the cities.
When I do some of those steep hikes my knees turn to Jelly, maybe I should Just take one of those Jiggling old busses instead.
Maybe I'll rent a Junior Suite in a nice hotel in the city.
January is probably the worst month to go to Tuscany. But June is beautiful, and July is hot, but nice.
Next time I go, I think I'll pick up a big Jar of olives, after listening to one of those little Jazz groups in Siena.

Sorry I've been such a Jerk with this one.

L is for Lucca, yet another place we're trying to fit into our already-crowded itinerary.

M: Montepulciano...the first, but not the last by a long shot, that we got our rental car stuck between buildings. Thank goodness for the car insurance!

Thanks, folks! Just after hitting the post button, I remembered we'd stayed at the hotel Jolanda in Santa Margherita. Checked my Italian 101 textbook, which indicates "there are 21 letters in the Italian alphabet," and words having the letters j, k, w, x, y "appear in words of foreign origin."

M is easy: Montepulciano, Montalcino, mezzoluna, miele, melone.
