I was a waitress and bread baker there back in 1975-1976 and go back every year to perform -- this time it will be on a screen, but we've all recorded special songs/stories having to do with the Caffe Lena -- mine is 6-1/2 minutes long, an interesting story and a new version of a song I wrote 45 years ago.
Yes, 45 years ago. How is that possible? Who knows where the time goes?
