"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Not the perfect moment, perhaps, but it shows my father's happiness upon coming to visit me where I now live (abroad), sitting outside and drinking his "relaxing cup of cafe con leche", the winter sun shining on the Basilica in the background ...
