Lent Friday

 

This Do in Remembrance of Me.

Bon voyage qui sera certainement très intéressant.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine. We're really looking forward to it.
i love the little fellow with his tightly curled hair and beard. enjoy the Italian sojourn and we will look forward to your stories and photos.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, Ayush. We're really excited about the trip.
Have a great trip, Ginnie, Pompei, Rome, and the Amalfi coast are wonderful, I have happy memories of them all.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Frank. I have memories of Rome (twice), Pisa and Pompeii, but all of this will be a first for Astrid. We are both really pumped!

Splendid light that reveals great clarity and color here! Sounds like a fabu trip that you and Astrid will be taking. Enjoy!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Steven, on both counts!
It's not a very cheerful scene but it's an excellent Ginnie picture. The colours are very well restored
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Marie. I really want to know more about this statue!

I like this POV. It is such a wonderful sculpture (in a sculpture) at the foot of this "saint?"....
Italy here we come, suitcase is almost packed.....
Ginnie Hart: I really do want to know more about this statue, Astrid. I hope we find out. And YES. Italy is just a taste away. smile

A fine piece of religious statuary Ginnie. I will be following your adventures with interest
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chris. I'm hoping Philine will eventually be able to help out with this statue. And thanks for following our Italy adventure!
Un joli détail de cette sculpture.
Bonne journée Ayush
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Pascale!
Catholic stuff gives me MEMORIES that's for sure.. altho we never practiced lent... aren't you going to Florence or Pompei? wonder why... i assume that the white dot in Florence means you won't be stopping? What a dream vacay!! have fun!!! xoxoxox
Ginnie Hart: Did you miss my text, Elaine? (Black dots are hotel stays, plus white dots where we'll also visit.) All of them, in other words, YES!

Oh yes, Astrid was telling me about your trip when we met in. Bristol. Thank you for the map, which shows your journey. I am excited for you, Italy is a wonderful country to visit.
Ginnie Hart: We really are excited, Chad,because there's so much to see. And to think we've already had 11 days in Venice and Verona (2017)!

It loos in very good condition. From the thumbnail, I thought at first he was using a power sander! Your Italian trip covers all the main sights by the look of it. I've been to Lake Garda and the Rimini area (the latter was my fist ever flight back in 1974).
Ginnie Hart: We'll miss Milan, Alan, but can always go back to just it one day, if we want. But, yes, we're very excited to see the places we've heard about for so long.
Looks like a wonderful trip Ginnie.

A fine statue that you have both portrayed in your own ways
Ginnie Hart: We're very excited about our trip, Bill, especially the part about leaving the driving to someone else. smile Thanks.

jolie prise
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
What a trip you guys are going to have! Take me with you wink

I have only been to Florence, Pisa, Rome, Bari, Verona and Lake Garda on the red line.

Turin is Turijn in Dutch?
Ginnie Hart: I've been to Rome, Pisa and Pompeii (as well as Verona and Venice with Astrid in 2017), LC, but I'm so looking forward to seeing them again, with new eyes, as well as everything else. Maybe you can be a fly on our bus?
Lovely close up details of this statue. Beautiful light also. Have a wonderful trip. Friendship
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ruthie, on both counts.
I look like that when I have to do dishes too. Hope your trip is all you dream of. Italy is a dream of mine.
Ginnie Hart: HA! And thanks, Mary. Maybe one day you can make your dream come true.

how very odd

have a great trip!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Sherri.
A very well carved and painted little character. I'm so envious when I read the itinery of your coach holiday, we would love to return to Italy but sadly my health problems put a damper on thatidea! Take plenty of memory cards smile
Ginnie Hart: So sorry you can't take this trip yourself,Brian, but, yes, we both will take plenty of memory cards! Thanks.
Wat een bijzonder beeld onder een heilige !
Leuk deze 2 standpunten vanuit een andere hoek op de 2 sites
En veel plezier....arrivederci !
Ginnie Hart: We both just wish we knew more about this statue, Marjolein! Thank you for your travel wishes. We're so excited.

I already commented on Astrid's posting about what a strange figure little blackbeard is. He must have been using special beard oil.

Enjoy your trip. Seems to me it is a coach tour.
Ginnie Hart: LOL about the beard oil, Louis. Something like that! And yes, it's a coach tour...a first for us.

and now "la dolce vita"

have a wonderful trip Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Willy. A "dolce vita," indeed.
This looks like quite a trip, enjoy.
Ginnie Hart: We plan to do just that, Martin.
Enjoy your trip - and be VERY careful in Naples - it is the most dangerous city in Italy for tourists.
Ginnie Hart: We actually won't be in Naples, Tom, so I guess that's good? We'll be 100+ km away in Montecassino.

What a wonderful beard.
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Ray, isn't it! smile
it's nice that you are restricting yourselves a bit for lent Ginnie... make sure that you go to the Vatican at leastgrin
....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I have actually been to the Vatican before, Peter, but it'll be a first for Astrid, with whom I'll be excited to share it. We're so excited about it all.
A fine piece of religious Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Roland.
Wonderful shot--you have a great eye for religious art.
