Malign imp

Minus two at 8am and snowing prettily but fairly solidly. Wondering whether, at going home time, Mama will be there to get them either going or home... 


 

The guardian of the door, Madonna del Ponte, Brissago.
This cherub is so remarkably hefty, so remarkably adult, I can't help feeling the mason had someone in mind.

Looks like a naughty child?

You know most cherubs do look like naughty children, but this one looks like something's gone seriously wrong in his life...

Is it possible, that your weather report is a bit screwed? No offense intended, but the second sentence doesn't make any sense to me...

Ciao Michelle, it's a pun on going home time... will I be there (because of the bad driving conditions) to get them going and/or to get them home...

Then again, maybe I have descended into gibberish...
