This morning I have serious doubts about the digital thermometer I glimpse fleetingly as I speed across Cannobio's annoying cobblestones kindergarten-bound. Today it said - wait for it - FOUR degrees. Surely it can't be? A quick triangulation with the digital thermometer on the computerized signboard announcing Cannobio as The Prettiest Medieval Town On The Lake, confirms it. Yes, a drop of NINE degrees on two days ago. That north-westerly did more than strip the bark off the trees.

Still, the sun's shining and the lake is glittering, and as long it's not raining hard enough to make a mudslide of the mulattiera, I'm not complaining.

However...

And it really is "a beauty, a badass, the mother of them all...".

Ho-hum.

PS Just imagine, at the tender age of 13 I (and all my girlfriends) thought Eric Stewart was the best thing in blue jeans...

Ha ha ha. Very appropriate, I got a cold today and I'm in bed and will be watching kittens in youtube all day.

The days when Eric Stewart was gorgeous in our eyes!! I know we were young... but! Must admit to enjoying when 10cc songs are played (albeit rarely) on the radio. Singing along to the YouTube entry as I type:P

BTW Have a feeling I've still got those vinyls in the loft somewhere.

Unless of course the entire town had gotten together to trick you and reprogramed not only your personal thermemter but also the town's sign... :p Hey it could happen! LOL
