WEEKLY WINNERS


More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners


As you know or not, I am spending my holidays at the Garda Lake in Italy. I show you some pictures I took this week.





A Swan family crosses the beach without hesitation and the tourists had just to jump aside !


The Arena in Verona where mostly operas are shown. Singers like Pavarotti, the Callas etc. have song here. It is the same arena, where roman gladiators fought.


a restaurant stuck at the rocks

Next week I will have much more of this beautiful place where Mr. Gattino was born and lived here until he was 24.

I have been to the arena in Verona! We took our dackel Shubi there years ago! The local people all went wild for her! It was so impressive. The arena, not Shubi! (Although she was lovely! LOL)

G'Day Gattina,
I found your blog via Merle's. Your holiday looks wonderful. We have black swans here not white ones. They are beautiful too but not as fluffy as the white ones.
I will never get to travel to such places as you are visiting. Thanks for shsring.

Oh, you are just having SUCH a grand time! You really don't even need to think about US at all! (I'm glad you DO - but you don't NEED to!)

I was without internet for 3 days due to a run-in with a lightening bolt! We are LUCKY to still be living in our home!
