Venice, anyone? (I've waited years to say that!) or should that be "Venison, anyone?"

No, I'll stick to Venice. We have more pics of that than of deer.
Dawn as we sail in toward the Grand Canal:

On the nearby island of Murano, we visited a glass factory and watched a glass blower at work while his well-dressed colleague narrated.

It's all beautiful, but I am amazed at how little of it I need to acquire any more.

You'd think this was a photo of a church, and it is, but see that unassuming little yellow palace next door? It belongs to Elton John. And we're told it really is a palace.

Looking forward from Skywalkers Lounge aft on deck 18:

ID:	74580The lifeboats were beginning their drill on the starboard side. Each one was let down, unhooked, and circled around until directed to return, hook up and be lifted back on board.

Another day, another port, the exercise was repeated with an obviously brand new pilot. He just could not get it. Kept overrunning his hooks, getting crosswise to the ship, unable to reverse ... until the boss finally boarded and took over. It was a comedy of errors, funny to us, but not to the principle characters!

I know exactly how it feels! Back a motor boat into the water, dock same; hitch a TT, hitch a tow vehicle. All same.

Tomorrow, Slovenia, would you believe!

Cheers!
Sue

R U an RV Mutant too?

Les, get the glitz, eh?

He's a lumberjack and he's okay
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

He cut down trees, he eat his lunch
He go to the laboratory
On Wednesdays he go shopping
And has buttered scones for tea.

He buy a motorhome and buff it up
And look for which one next
On weekends he sells the one he got
And buys the one that next.

Any mutants using one...
I have the GoPro 3+. Unfortunately I have not used it enough to give a proper evaluation. For what it was designed for it is adequate. The aperature has a little bending at the edges, but that may be a settiing I have not investigated yet. I'm using it preliminarily as a dash camera. The video quality is pretty good. Me thinks it would hold up in a court of law as evidence if need be. I also carried it around once and used it as a snap shot cameral. easy to carry. Fits in shirt pocket when not in use. Battery only lasts about an hour plus some. There is a second enclosure that allows for use as the dash camera and allows for USB plug in to a cig lighter for continuous power. I'm still learning.

It happened: Mini-C in Little Rock
(Left to right) Larry, Dianne, Earlene, and Wayne

Di and Larry came to the CG and we spent a few hours chatting, then we went to the soft serve place for Di so she could suck a hamburger through a straw. After dinner we visited for another few hours at Di and Larry's abode. A lovely place and filled with wonderful pictures that Dianne has water colored. And unbeknownst, Larry is quite the "stained glass" artist. The need to post some pictures of his accomplishments.

We had a wonderful time. Depending on what the tooth fairy tells Dianne in the morning will determine if we can spend some more time together. She might fake it though just so she doesn't have to put up with me. Like, I have one toothless picture but I promised I would not post it. I'll just carry it in my wallet to have private showing. I know some of you will pay me well to see that picture. Don't forget to ask to see "my pride and joy."

Love it all. Thanks! And we'll all look forward to seeing your "pride and joy" sometime, if Di doesn't throttle you first!

Larry: pics of your stained glass, please!!!
