Marty’s photo of the day #2749:After being awake for more than 24 hours straight, because of our Italy to Missoula flights being canceled and rerouted, I’m back home, feeling reasonably alert. While in Italy, I took almost 2,000 photos and am just starting to sort through them—deleting 300 in the first cut. Here’s a shot […]
Greetings from Venice!
Marty’s photo of the day #2741: Greetings from Venice, Italy! It’s the end of a delightful day here in Venice. Deb and I just spent the last few hours having dinner (Where we met a delightful couple from England and Scotland—who were quite understanding that we were honorary Canadians until Donald Trump is out of […]
