I have visitors coming from Roma, so I’ll be missing from the World of Blogdom for a couple of days.
This little house is one of the few free-standing I’ve noticed in Venice.
Babbo Natale, just hanging around, waiting.
And, the grand finale.

I never left, Steven, except to take my guests to Mazzorbo, Burano and Lido! Sleep well tonight.
Nearly. We are all of us, in different degrees, still dealing with jet lag and not sleeping well, or in my wife’s case, hardly at all. But I’m confident tonight will be the night when we all finally return to normalcy. You are back in Venice?
I read someplace that the executioners of Venice lived in detached houses but can’t recall the locations referred to in my source (whatever it was–perhaps Norwich’s history of the city?).
Now that you mention it, Steve, that sounds familiar. (She said, hopping on your bandwagon.)
Are you settled back in?
I found your detached house, Yvonne. There must have been a boatyard nearby once upon a time.
“There must be a story attached to that.”
Two storys to be precise! 🙂 [I checked in a dictionary.]
So now I get to play straightman to your jokes, Bert?!
OK, so why must there have been a boatyard neardby?? (Aside from the squero.)
Those hanging Babbo Natales are adorable. That pissotta is a mountain! Hope you have a great time with your friends from Roma. Cheers, Annie
Hi, Annie. The babbo Natale have sprung up everywhere, like mushrooms. I’ve just bid arrivederci to my friends, I had a lovely time with them
Missing you already.
Same here, Andrew! I’ve got blog withdrawal syndrome!
Hi, Maya. My fingers may be itching to get to the keyboard, these next few days.
Oh, I shall miss your daily posts! I look forward to them so much! Have a wonderful time with your company, but do not stay away too long! There are those of us left behind that need our daily dose of Yvonne’s world!
Enjoy your company!!
I sure am/will. They want to get to Burano today, so off we’ll go.
ya! it sure is grand…..
The Grand Pissota …..
Wow! They mean business with that last one!!!!
I found another place that sells electric stuff, Jude. I’ll send you the address later.
Cute house, but looks almost out of place as a free standing building, eh? the pissota is huge – for a giant?
I can’t recall ever having seen a free standing house here before. There must be a story attached to that.
