Venice we are up! We had a long but OK drive yesterday through torrential rains. its bright and sunny now, and it feels wonderful to be away. Checked in several times at home, all is well. My best friend called my Mum and sister to see if they want something. they wanted the little cheeze cakes from costco. Yup, I guess they are doing fine! In the mean time, we have pool on the agenda, and relaxing. We cannot get over food portions in the USA. We leave with plates half full. We are not small, or small eaters, believe me we can eat, but its just to much. Hope every one is having a good day.
