Thanks for your introduction, and welcome to the forum. I saw your post in the thread on JG's death. I'm sorry to "meet" you under these circumstances, but, as I said in that thread, coming forward now is a great tribute to him in itself.
You sound either like someone raised in an English-speaking country who later moved to the Netherlands or else you have a stunningly great command of English as a second language.
In either case, it's wonderful you avail yourself of the cultural eclecticism of Europe and specifically go to Italy often. I've had a growing desire in the last 10 years to make at least one trip to Italy, Germany, England, Ireland, France, Spain, etc. before I wind things up in this life. And my nephews, who are 18 and 22, are ironically in Italy right now as part of a school trip for the younger one. Since I indoctrinated them both, but especially the older one, into the Sopranos, I'm sure they will have something to say to me when they return about the timing of JG's death in Italy
with their own trip there.
I assume you never saw a "client" of your dad's chop off his pinky with a cleaver.
And it's very cool you have a psychotherapist in the house to weigh in on all the Melfi scenes. As you might guess from my screen name, Tony's inner world was always the most powerful aspect of the show for me.
