A street shrine

You don’t walk very far in Venice, or the lagoon islands, without seeing street shrines.

This is one I particularly liked.

A good blog to read, if you are interested in knowing more about some of the shrines and capitelli in Venice isย  http://www.slowtrav.com/blog/annienc/

    Did you know that ‘tonto’ meant dull, silly, or stupid in Italian (and Spanish)?
    Tonto was played by Jay Silverheels in the TV series. He was born Harold J. Smith – isn’t that disappointing? The Lone Ranger was the best thing on TV in the late 50s.
    Definition of an intellectual: Someone who can hear the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger.
    The only information in my head is what I learned before I was 11. Everything else comes off the interweb.

    • Hello, Other Yvonne. Once the weather cools down in my neck of the woods, I’ll be a bit happier! Is spring showing any signs of poking its nose out, in your area?

        One minute that, next minute ….this?
        Easy, dry winter….probably hot dry summer.
        Hope your cooler-happier soon.
