The Silver Eel

"A gape-jawed serpentine shape of pale metal crested with soot hung high for a sign."

On hols as of tomorrow, though just how much rest we're going to get with Thing #1 and Thing #2 is open to question. Hol reading, more in hope than expectation, is Puck of Pook's Hill and Rewards and Fairies on a hot tip from Yvonne, and courtesy of Books and Ink in Banbury because both books are OP in Britain; Love and War in the Apennines by Eric Newby; the remainder of Italian Tales from the Age of Shakespeare.

We won't be doing a spot of roof tiling on a Venetian palazzo. I just like the painting, and haven't posted an image for a while.
